Informative and helpful
By Aliannya N. on 25. August 2020 for Psychology and Sociology

This lecture series is quite informative and helpful. The instructor is good at breaking down complicated psychology and sociology concepts, especially for those of us with limited neurological sciences, psychology, and sociology background. He is animated and very well informed and good at explaining the concepts and practical applications in clinical and research settings.

Please, speak slowly.

Very good presentation, clear slides but I am a non native english person, Dr Tarry's speaking to fast.

Best MCAT Psych/Soc; better than KA and follows AAMC outline!
By Sophie D. on 27. July 2020 for Social Inequality

The teacher is excellent, straight to the point and very engaging, yet professional. And most importantly, the syllabus follows the MCAT AAMC outline to the T! It takes away the stress of having to worry that you miss a topic. It’s better than Khan Academy P/S in my opinion. And their P/S covers absolutely everything you need for the MCAT. No more, no less! I wish all lecturios MCAT subjects were designed that way. Their P/S is definitely one the best out there for the MCAT!!

Excellent Micro-Lecture series that is both coherent and packed with a high concentration of information.
By Neuer N. on 01. July 2020 for Psychology and Sociology

This course was quite information, presented by a professor with a vast knowledge of subject matter and the linguistic ability to express such an understanding coherently and with enthusiasm. As a result, I would feel thoroughly comfortable suggesting this series of Micro-lectures to anyone interested in preparing for the Psychology and Sociology sub-section of the Medical College Admission Test. Furthermore, this resource is very helpful as a basis for understanding Psychology and Sociology - With that said, do not depend on this resource as your only means to education reference for the subsection Psych/Soc on the official MCAT.
