two stars just for the effort. But its ore like reading fro book. Nothing different. Very boring. No interaction.

Simple,informative and explains very well

Studying Biochemistry lectures helps me to understand and hold in memory every each case,,, so this is the best ever

Itโ€™s not a bad lecture but itโ€™s bulky stuff that isnโ€™t simplified to hold ones attention, donโ€™t get me wrong, it has its highlights but it could be more interesting.
