Your histo lectures are awesome
By Laura P. on 16. June 2017 for Connective Tissue

I really enjoy to listen your lectures. Are awesome because you can understand everything. In my opinion sometimes are missing few things but nothing to compare with the whole lecture!!! THanks dr. Geoffrey Meyer

Great Lecturer
By Michael T. on 22. May 2017 for Nerve Tissue

Lecturer is great and thorough, I like that he takes space so that you can note something down etc.

By Denise C. on 02. May 2017 for Connective Tissue

I didn't like because (comparing to microbiology) he speaks faster and the resources are poor. To much information without a satisfactory resource. I did graduated in 2009, so it was a long time ago to remember histology. I need to check every detail so it was hard to follow.

Good and I think it's from a great lecturer
By Dawuda A. on 24. April 2017 for Connective Tissue

It's very good and I think I have learnt a lot and I will like to watch the other videos.
