I like it. The information or definition are great. However, an example of the definition would be great to get a clearer understanding. Overall itโ€™s excellent

Helpful and easy to understand

I relly like this course, since it gives me a really good idea about a lot of disorders and even examples with which its easier to imagine what the person is going through and what we can do to help them. I can also go through some pretty interesting articles and quizes in which I can test my knowledge and go over the things I learned so I can see what I have to improve and go over again.

All lectures by dr Tarry is great!

I like all doctor Tarry's lectures, he delivered them simple and somehow easy to understand well and he added easy to remember examples.
