Fantastic class material but the quiz questions need improvement
By Mia H. on 26. June 2020 for Biochemistry: Basics

I love having access to such rich learning material, thanks for making this an available resource. My only criticism would be that the quiz questions could use improvement and the professor could talk slower to make note taking easier. Overall, very grateful to have found this!
