Contradiction
By GMU L. on 20. November 2019 for Biochemistry of Megaloblastic Anemia

The name of the lecture was very contradicting to the material given. In addition, I felt that the explanation as everywhere there was no proper structure of things.

 
Good job
By Alexander B. on 22. June 2018 for Biochemistry of Megaloblastic Anemia

Î really appreciate the Lectures, this whole Website helps a lot. But it´s annoying that the Professor always says " repeat it 3 times fast " , Theres no point in doing that , if nobody could understand him in the first place . If you cant properly spell it out /pronounce it one time, it´s no use to repeat it fast.

 
The BEST lectures
By Raul G. on 09. May 2018 for Macrocytic Anemia: Clinical Pathology

No words to describe how good are all the lectures performed by Carlo Raj. High yield, entertaining, interactive, concise.
