A Good Lecture With Lecture Notes and Quiz
By Jacklin G. on 11. August 2018 for Taking the History

This was a good lecture. I am trying to take all of the Free Classes offered by Lecturio, so as to improve my own health. I appreciate this lecture, because it is offered by an instructor who has a real medical background. It is very easy to follow Dr. Helen Farrell's line of reasoning. The main points are also fairly easy for me to follow on the screen, because you provide these lecture notes to the student. The quiz helps me to see how well I grasp the information you explain in the lecture. Thank you so much for this offer.
