The best for my exam
By Markus The Artist M. on 15. June 2021 for Large Intestines: Colon Cancer

Great Teacher Much Appreciated honestly, I have a surgery exam very soon so just recapping!

Good but short
By Marah A. on 31. March 2021 for General Surgery

I had choose this rating because I enjoyed the lectures and the assessment of quizzes after each class. A bad thing is that I think it’s too short and I need to read from other sites , and if I had a wrong answer it didn’t say why ? But stay I enjoyed it.

Very straight to the point. No information overload . High yield, easy to remember.

Explanations are great, but some videos are so shorts long, it would be great if there is an option to view longer time or the some videos together
