    I have been struggling to understand epithelial cells in my college anatomy class so I'm glad I found these lectures. I'm very appreciative of Dr. Meyer's explanations on the different structures, shapes, and names for epithelial cells. The quizzes during the video help me stay focused.

    Great lecture

    Great lecture! It is easy to understand and very clearly explained. I think this kind of lectures are great to listen before you read your textbook, so that you alredy have an idea about the topic you are about to read. I really loved it, thank you.
