You're the best physiology teacher ever! Thanks a lot for your awesome lectures sir. You're the best!

The lecture simplified the concept, it’s easier to understand and straight to the point. It’s a good post textbook review of the concept. Thank you so much!

True believer

Explanations made a complicated physiology lecture so easily understandable. Examples were clear and on point.

optional quiz idea
By Ahmed a. on 24. February 2018 for Cardiac Physiology

Please consider adding more questions, as an optional quiz, because I know if the quizzes are too long the circle can't go green and the time taken to go through the whole set might increase, but if you added questions as an extra choice for those wanting to be challenged that might be nice.
