There should be more detail about the gross anatomy of the nasal cavity

Everything is explained very clearly. I understood all the information in the video perfectly.

Much Needed Review
By Gabrielle G. on 15. February 2021 for Respiratory Histology

Histology was and always will be my strong suit in medical school, but this was a much-needed review in prep for my upcoming exam. Also, for those who are IMG's and might not have the best of professors, Lecturio has got you covered when it comes to learning what you need to know to do well on exams in year 1 and 2...or if you are having to re-teach yourself like me (upside down smiley).

Great & Detailed Review
By Gabrielle G. on 14. February 2021 for Respiratory Gross Anatomy

This was an excellent detailed review of respiratory gross anatomy. Quite a bit more than I thought I need for Step 1, but I am glad I fully went through it as it has helped me fill in the blanks and gaps in knowledge that I was previously unaware of. Remember, you don't know what you don't know until you take the time to study it.
