Incredibly clear. I love the way Professor Joseph Alpert makes this topic so simple!

Great course, questions could do with reviewing.

A very good course, quite thorough! Since this course is also recommended for MBBS students (typically a British degree), it may be worth including some of the NICE guidelines when it comes to treatment as that is what our med school exams are based on. Additionally, the questions in this course aren't very challenging and honestly a little weak - not really at exam level more like a "let's check if you listening quiz". Overall, a very helpful review though.

awesome!!! Thank you, sir
