Good Knowledge but not engaging
By JENNIFER M. on 02. April 2020 for Psychiatric Assessment

Although the instructor is knowledgeable, the lecture is boring that I am not able to comprehend completely.

Simple, easy to recall, and puting quizzes by the end of every video is a very good way to memorize

The lectures are simple, short videos that doesn't take much time, and I like the articles that come with it
