I am in love with this site. Seriously. I have been up and down looking for help and this was the place for me. I use my books along with this site as I am a visual learner so thank you for doing this. Plenty of free lectures for financial strugglers like me. Very helpful. I've already shown two of my classmates.

Great Supplement to my class

The courses and lectures are great. They have great information, and the lecturers go at a good pace. It has been a great supplement to my histology class, and has been a very useful resource. It has all the information I need, and is easy to follow with Dr. Meyer.
