Too fast
By Ida A. on 15. November 2018 for Hydrophobic R-groups – Amino Acids

way too fast ????I really wish the teacher would talk slower as now I keep having to pause and rewind etc.

Easy to follow
By Janet G. on 31. October 2018 for Overview – Introduction to Biochemistry

Direct , and easy to follow. The length of the video also helps.

Not necessary
