He explained thoroughly and I was able to understand without having to use the lecture. I really like the quizzes that are given. wish the quiz had more questions though

 
very indept lecture
By queen o. on 10. April 2019 for Epithelium: Classification

I felt like I was sitting in the classroom with the lecturer. He taught with precision and knowledge that I can easily guess what a histologic slide is with his explanations. Very grateful for this lecture

 
My Review!
By Daniah M. on 08. April 2019 for Blood: Introduction

I love it. I learned quite a lot. Explained very well on a simple-minded person like me. And I was able to ace the quiz somehow. So yes, thank you very much!

 
Very Nice Histo Lecture on Skin
By Ilay B. on 03. April 2019 for Skin (Integumentary System)

Made personally complicated and hard-to-take-in material very clear for me. It was very helpful with the definitions of the histological terms and summarized the skin topic very well. I am getting ready for my first histology exam and this video helped a lot!
