I love the way she breaks things down. Whenever she pops up in the lectures I know I am going to walk away knowing more than I did before.

Simple and concise explanation

I think this video hits the balance between going slowly enough to ensure understanding and quickly enough to retain interest. I also like the frequent questions/pauses to answer. I felt like I was getting a headstart on spaced repetition and it did help reinforce that I was understanding the concepts.
