Way better than PPP from the book
By Jennifer H. on 29. January 2019 for Congenital Heart Disease (CHD)

Found on YouTube - Signed up for membership!!! Now I UNDERSTAND CHD - I could only read the PPP so many times.

Clear, concise
By Elvia A S. on 11. May 2018 for Classification – Congenital Heart Disease

I find the instruction and examples beneficial. Dr. Alpert is clear and does not complicate a difficult subject.

Could use imaging
By Bjarni J. on 07. November 2017 for Conclusion – Congenital Heart Disease

Could really include some of the image diagnoses, seeing as you talk about them. Other than that good lecture.
