Excellent Lecture :)
By Timothy B. on 22. December 2017 for Beta Oxidation of Fatty Acids

I finally understood why keto diet is so effective :) Thank you Dr. Kevin!

Loved it!

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.

Lipids and eays metabolism
By Andreas F. on 02. October 2017 for Lipid Metabolism

Kevin must be the best teacher ever. He explains with a certainty only a person with many years of lecturing can. Simple, easy and fast, making complicated matters seem easy to learn. Compared to the slides i have in med. school, the content is the same. But this guy also gives the explaination in the same amount of time! His body language is also nice to watch as they are firm and open, kind of directing your thoughts, like a maestro. You just have to remember and do some repetition of EVERY detail he mentiones, it will for sure be on the exam. I also use his lectures to simplify my understandings from pdf files from school and heavy textbooks. I will recommend everyone to use this!! Also i love the quiz afterwards. 1rst year university medicine
