I was going to give it a five stars but in the lecture you said during respiration the heart moves down and up but in the quiz the right answer was up and down..

I recommend this for any one in medical school who is looking for high yield information.

The diagrams used had labels that were not in English. So that was really disappointing since it was difficult to go through the PDF files without the lecture. Also.. it would be really helpful if the lecturers used larger and more clear diagrams. And use pens or highlighters when referring to the diagram. Other than that, the course so far is good.
