A little bit on the light side, but phenomenal source for review, or USMLE dedicated study
By joshua W. on 14. December 2018 for Microbiology

So, during my first two years, I thought this course was a little on the light side, and it feels a bit as if the instructor is more stating facts rather than explaining and linking ideas. I know they tend to keep the videos short, but I think this course could have benefitted from more time, from a learning the material stand point. As a video series for learning, you might be left wanting with just over an hour per subject. As a learning source, 3 out of 5. So, now on to why you should really give this guy a watch. I was looking for a quick microbiology review during my dedicated study. I had watched sketchy, and read the textbooks, but wanted a quick, solid review series to watch during lunch and dinner during my dedicated, something a little bit more to the point than sketchy. This lecture series is the holy grail of high yield review that is exactly what any student looking for a great microbiology source to watch during their dedicated study. It is short, to the point, and highlights what you need to get most of those micro questions right on UWORLD and has the images in the slides that you need to be able to recognize. High yield review source, 5 out of 5. So, overall, I would give this series a 4 out of 5. If your a first or second year, this might not be the best choice for microbiology, however as a high yield review I would rank these microbiology videos second to none.

Nice introduction to a complex subject
By Mohsin K. on 07. December 2018 for Human Microbiome

5/5 because of the simplified explanation of the human microbiome. I like the approach used because it sets the stage for acquiring important high yield information later into the subject.
