Dear dr. Kevin Ahern, I love your lectures! You explained everything perfect and you make me understand the things. Your lectures are enjoyable :)

I'm so proud of my knowledge. Many thanks dr. Kevin Ahern for your lectures. I've understood why some people have high concentrations of cholesterol in their blood vessels when they eat correctly. In anorexia is normally to have this concentration high. Many thanks :)

excellent work by professor to make biochemistry understandable for all

some methods for study the reactions
By Laura P. on 21. May 2017 for Biochemistry

Thanks Dr. Kevin Ahern. Believe me when I say that I have a teacher who just read his lectures. I think that Biochemistry is a hard subject and difficult to understand because most of the things are just known perfectly reactions and structures. But your lectures have something else. I take some notes and it's easier for me to study the subject. Before I started with Lecturio most of my subjects I didn't know how to study. There is only one thing that I would like to suggest. I would like to know some facilities that teachers and students use for know the structures.
