    Loved it!
    By Genevieve R. on 20. November 2017 for Fat Breakdown and Synthesis

    The Good: Lecture: 5/5 Amazing Lecture! I learned a lot! The Not so good: Quiz:2/5 Only 1 question....and was not as specific as I would like it to have been. Perhaps consider having at least 50% of the terms discussed included in the Quiz.
