not bad
By Sualp E. on 11. December 2019 for Bone Tissue

histology lesson generally very good but some case like this one ? thing it better if prof meyer mention important thing more loudly or repeat all bone tissue on kind of table or set connections between subjects . By the way Prof Meyer explain all thing perfectly but not permanent in mind.

Concise and detailed insights
By Soren A. on 06. December 2019 for Epithelial Tissue

Concise. Good explanations that go past just describing the layers in the different tissues. Considering the modest length of the videos, it is noticeable how much knowledge is conveyed.
