Hello. I just want to share my thought on this lecture series. These lecture series are so excellent that as a student we have the capacity to control the phase of the video, and secondly doctor Thad Wilson explain this concepts so clearly that I find it very useful along side my course in MBBS. I like the Thad Wilson teaches. He is a great teacher. The content of the slides a also excellent because students can easily follow the short best outline. Thank you doctor Thad Wilson, and the lecturio staffs for the this help.

Highly recommended
