Chromosomal disorders review
By Emeka I. on 29. April 2021 for Chromosomal Disorders

It's well presented and relatively easy to understand. It has helped me understand various concepts

i like but the fomr like the professor express can distract a little

I feel the lectures do not deliver what is required. With some improvements, it would be a 5/5 course

I use Emery’s Elements of Medical Genetics 15th edition as primary study material, which i recommend for anyone to use. I decided to take this course as a supplement and ended up confused and annoyed. Simple learning objectives of this course lectures are harder to understand due to poor explanation and as far as i can tell the professor seems stressed, disoriented and confused herself. Lectures need a rework. Despite that, the articles are pretty good and helpful, PowerPoint slides are useful to an extend.
