I like it because it's so clear and comprehensive and watching the lectures taught by best rank US teachers makes you feel you won't miss anything you should know,but in my country(Iran) the reference text book for pediatric in medical school is Nelson Essentials of Pediatrics, 8th edition, and i think lecturio is a bit different from it,what's your reference?
