Great preparation for the Boards immediately before the exam day.

Great lectures in such a short time. I would listen to this series right before exams.

Not even close to being sufficient
By Una E. on 17. October 2017 for CNS Infection—Clinical Neurology

I work as an MD at the neurology department at Herlev Hospital, Copenhagen. I was looking for inspiration before I was supposed to do a lecture on CNS infections myself, for the medical students and young doctors at the department. Your lectures are not even close to being good enough or sufficient - there are WAY to many details left out, plus, explanations and clinical relevance is almost none. I couldn't use it at least, and had to dig deeper in my old books and in other lectures. Moreover, I don't get the way the lecturer speaks... he pronounces some words with a weird emphasis on specific words - making you almost feel stupid...

A very bad lecture

A very bad lecture. Mistakes that can not be said lecture after lecture
