Short, succinct and straight to the point. The high yield stuff. The need to know. Saved me countless hours of mind numbing reading, most of which I'd probably forget anyway! Love it.

Excellent lectures!

Systematic, informative, easy to remember high yield concepts after watching. I enjoyed the lectures very much during my free trial 24h and I am now considering buying the full subscription.

In my opinion, she's talking a bit too slow and sounds unnatural as though she's reading a textbook. Still, the lecture is ok.

consice and applicable

The presentations were informative, easy to understand and remember. It is also immediately applicable, and the clinical relevance is portrayed in her examples. It's good that we can adjust the speed of the video, as I feel like I hear her in slow motion at normal speed... however, I usually speed up all videos, regardless of who's presenting it.
