great lecture
By Samira D. on 03. April 2019 for False Positives and False Negatives – Screening Tests

The lecturer is great! My concepts seem to be a lot clearer. However, the answers to the quiz questions need to be displayed somewhere, as i found them quite tough.

Not as detailed as "Kaplan"

This series is good to watch before doing the same section from the Kaplan videos. Don't bank on getting detailed explanations but rather concise i.e. what you need to know!
