Very helpful!
By Christina E. on 12. June 2019 for Head and Neck Anatomy

I just finished my first year of medical school and I’m reviewing over the summer. These videos are concise and to the point. I like how the questions are directly following. Very helpful, I wish I knew about it during school as well

 
Poor
By Kit T. on 03. June 2019 for Cerebellum

Dull lecture that is presented badly with no useful insights. As another reviewer pointed out, it isn't worth watching Craig's content, you are better off going to Youtube for better content.

 
improvement needed
By Ondrej V. on 28. May 2019 for Brain and Nervous System—Anatomy

I think that you are lacking a lot of information. Only the basics are seen. But the complex issues are not mentioned or not described at all. If I compare these anatomical videos with other subjects, I have to admit that the quality is way worse than average.

 
The one star reviews are wrong.
By Dylan F. on 21. May 2019 for Direct and Indirect Basal Ganglia Pathway

Not sure what the other reviewers mean by a one star review. This is a very straightforward lecture and easy to understand. The math makes intuitive sense if you sit and think about it for a second. I don't see how this was rated 1 star.
