I loved the skill videos and the role plays. The exams help the recall process. Overall a good way for every Doctor, medical student and EMT to learn and relearn these skills online.
Everything was explained keenly and whatever they may not have covered in the videos they provided reading articles and sites for independent studies. Loved it!!
