It makes histology simply amazing
By Favour E. on 20. October 2020 for Epithelial Tissue

I chose 5 stars because the lectures were detailed and there were enough slides to explain every point. This really helped me while studying the topic in my textbook as I understood the slides and why they were so; why some looked pale and others look deeply stained, it's simply amazing. I although didn't like that some of the lectures had the last few seconds cut out (for me). I would recommend this lecture to those who have been trying to figure out why histological slides are why they are and have thus found histology "boring".

Well simplified ????

Liked it because they hv simplified all things that were giving me hard time, now I assure you that I can teach the next person.

Concise and well explained
By Soren A. on 11. October 2020 for Muscle Tissue

For the short duration of the videos, less than an hour, important material is covered and in a way so it is possible to remember. There is even time for a little anecdote about muscle lengths, which makes it easier to remember afterwards. The kind of tricks good teachers use.

Curso excelente

EXCELENTE. Muy bien explicado, desde principales datos de anatomía, hasta las meninges se entendió muy bien.
