Very clear and to the point explanations. It’s like sitting in class.

Confusing and superficial
By Neuer N. on 16. March 2018 for Limbic System

Unfortunately I found the course confusing and superficial. In my opinion, it would be important that all the structures of the system be shown, while explaining their functions, for example. Sorry for any mistake, but I'm not used to writing in english.

???????????????????????? you guys made my test today easier, i had no struggle at all. It was an oral test, i made it short and sweet thanks to you

Good as an introduction, bad as in it lacks details and explanations.
By Berk B. on 12. March 2018 for Brain and Nervous System—Anatomy

If you have trouble understanding certain concepts, or need introducing, this course can serve you well. However keep in mind that the course can only serve as an introduction, as it contains very little details. Make sure you adequately read ans study from a textbook on top of this.
