Not enough
By giovanna m. on 15. May 2018 for 3 Major Types of CNS Tumors: Medulloblastoma & Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor (PNET), Ependymoma and Glioma

Way too much superficial on pathology. Slides are just lists: I can find this in books. I would have liked something like diagrams or drawings.

Easy to understand
