Some of the info was from 2009? The ages of the celebrities mentioned are off by about 10 years now

This was an excellent course. The presenter was able to walk the road between being personable and not stodgy, and having a strong professional grasp on the material. Some of his examples of ways to share the information with a general population very good. His organization of the material was useful. His command of the data was obvious, and his explanation of how to apply the data to the practicalities of working with this population were on the mark. The only thing I would change would be to have more visual expressions of the data. Especially with some of the descriptions of hormonal action I think a schematic of the interactions of the hormones and targets and visually showing the interactions and responses to particular ExRx would be very helpful for a visual learner like me. But that is a small matter, and this is a presenter I would absolutely look to take another course from.

just a wall of words

Excellent presenter. Excellent information. Definitely using the information immediately!!!
