Good but there can be improvement
By Melissa C. on 08. January 2017 for ECG Tracing: Normal Intervals – Electrocardiogram

Generally good lecture but there are tons of typos everywhere on the slides for cardiac physiology and I'm pretty sure he misspeaks occasionally. Make sure you use another resource to fact check

Highly educational!
By Victor J. on 28. December 2016 for Cardiac Physiology

Highly educational lectures from a very charismatic lecturer. I liked it very much!

By Melissa C. on 26. December 2016 for Vascular Physiology

Good clear. Covered high yield concepts. The professor uses good visuals but they equations could be refined (e.g., all fractions written top and bottom)

Great charismatic lecturer!
