    everything 4 boards are covered and the narrator really gives main road of the subject

    Too fast, unfocused and not detailed enough
    By Isaac V. on 26. March 2018 for Potter's Syndrome

    The lecturer does a great job at keeping the presentation interesting, however he rushed over several points in the topics to the point in which he ignored some of the information present in his slides. Also, it feels out of place when he jumps to different topics that have little to nothing to do with the present lecture. Finally, the lecture feels SO rushed that he missed key aspects of the pathology of every desease he talked about, especially Potter Sequence and its etiologies.

    Clear explanation
