Dr Alpert is very wise and knows how to teach with his vast experience. I'm very visual and all of the lectures in Lecturio are like that. I use Lecturio for a fast review and gives me the confidence to answer questions to my professors and shine like a star. It is amazing how much you can learn in a little time. Dr Alpert shows a lot of pictures and graphs to enhance your knowledge and confidence. Excellent job Dr Alpert!
