efficient, useful
By o?uz k. on 15. October 2018 for How Does Muscle Repair After Injury?

very good lecturer also listen?ng at 1.25x speed works well. I recommend it.

 
informative and interesting to read
By Mazen A. on 03. October 2018 for Cells of the Epidermis

this article handles the explanation for skin layers; which I find as the hardest of the topics, in a well organised and logically acceptable building. It is really interesting to read. It summarizes the topic but without the loss of any crucial information. Also, the use of well-labelled pictures and microscopic slides is a plus and catalyse the understanding. I would recommend this to my premedical colleagues.

 
Excellent presentation
By Ali Akebat S. on 26. September 2018 for Muscle Tissue

Excellent perfomance and pedagogically presented. I would like to have some structure pointed out on the image, and some examples. I would like to know further more what to pay attention to etc.
