Dr. Raj is one of the best professors I know !!! I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work, Dr, Raj! You make students understand and think! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!

It can be better if he explains without jumping around.

He is good But honestly its really hard to follow along with what he is saying (even after prereading before the video). Sometimes I feel he jumps around concepts. Mentions something and you thing what he says next its relevant to the previous things and no.
