Good explanation for upper limb
By Carolina L. on 17. November 2020 for Upper Limb Anatomy

I did like this course but in some cases, I wish the images were larger as I had to keep referring back to my netter because the ones shown were not clear enough. I also wish that the professor show the movements when talking about what action each muscle does, whether through a picture or just simply showing them himself.
