Perfect lectures
By Wei M. on 07. December 2017 for Arteries, Veins, Capillaries and Lymph Vessels: Summary

This section of Dr. Meyer's lecturers are clear, well organized and beautifully presented.

 
Very good
By Ken W. on 19. November 2017 for Cardiovascular Histology

Very good lectures, but one small suggestion to get this lecture to a full 5 stars. The cardiology section is lacking a lecture on endothelial cell function and properties. The Pawlina Histology text includes this subject matter in the Cardiology chapter.
