Fast and fun!
By Andreas F. on 16. August 2017 for Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics

It is fantastic to have a lecturer making a diffucult subject easy. Now i can not wait diving into some hardcore books about enzymes. Watching an inspiring teacher really makes a difference. This guy is also rather fast talking so you dont need to speed up, witch i do quite often. Also the pop quiz in the end just makes it so much more fun. It becomes a game. And thats great and enhances long term memory.

Very easy to understand
