Great Lecture
By Moris S. on 04. January 2018 for Hydrophilic vs. Hydrophobic – Absorption and Distribution | Pharmacokinetics (PK)

I really wanted to give it 5 stars specially because of the question pertaining to Fick' s law that was included, however the fact that Sir didn' t mention that all forms of diffusion are passive and the word Diffusion itself means being randomised made me give this 4 stars only.

Excellent but with scope for some improvement
By Sunil K. on 31. December 2017 for Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics

Excellent Narration with good slides and quiz questions in between the lectures to rekindle recapitulation and retention. There is however good scope for improvement as one needed to resort to the slides and scratch the brain to better understand the concepts.
