I really liked the energy and enthusiasm of the professor during the classes. Even though it is not my favourite subject, the organization of each class was simple and easy to understand. After the class, the questions helped me retain the information and to consolidate what i've learnt.

I really like this professor: rather than emphasizing memorization, he emphasizes understanding of immunological concepts, making immunology really interesting. One of the best lecturers for Lecturio.
