You seem to have forgotten that Rosalind Franklin played a huge role in the discovery of DNA!!! Why was she not mentioned?

Life saver
~ dbangley

I can understand my textbook now and will be prepared for my exam.
This is close to a miracle..

Loving the enthusiasm!
~ Lyndsay

I love the enthusiasm in this tutorial, it helped catch and keep my interest throughout. No mean feat at the moment as I am nursing a headcold and have the concentration of a goldfish, but this tutorial still managed to help me get my foggy head around the subject where my text book couldn't. The only reason it didn't score a five was because it left me hanging at the end...I hate movies that end on cliffhangers ;P ! Suppose I shall just have to purchase the next installment then, great sales technique!

very vague
~ Daina

I am a little disappointed in the detail of the video. I was hoping for more than just a general overview.

~ min

He explains very well and it's easy to understand
I wish my professor can teach like him :)

I think this guy is fantastic. He makes learning a difficult subject alot easier! I wish he was my teacher.
