Nacorda-sensei is awesome. Wish I could take his class again. He teaches in a fun way and makes learning anatomy simple and easy to work through.

I want to thank Christian for these past 8 weeks, I've really learned a lot. I found that the Q and As and feedback were quite encouraging. I hope I'll be able to attend another one of his classes in the future.
