I'm a huge fan of Dr. Raj so this may be a bit biased. Dr. Raj does an excellent job of hitting the high points and his anecdotes are quite relevant. You almost feel as though you're on rounds or in the clinic and there's a patient presenting with symptoms. Video examples of the endoscopes would be awesome btw.
I felt that there where some details missing, Dr. Raj did give out the basic description of the majority of diseases, but if the videos where a little more complete I wouldn't of felt the need to go read and look some where else
I think the lectures provide a quick summary of these sections. However, I don't think it is adequate depth particularly when it comes to management. This is exemplified by the management of oesophageal varices where it is unclear which management approach will be utilised first/preferred in the case of acute bleed nor is it clear when you will need to utilise TIPSS. Finally a number of diagnostic tests are mentioned throughout the talks but the audience is not provided with a basis to approach the patients sitting on front of them. As an example if a patient complains of dysphagia or dyspepsia what will be your first diagnostic tests and the order in which you will perform these test. I think this the higher level thinking required for step 2
