Course Reviews

  • Mercy Mercy Modupe, Ogungbamila
    The course is enlightening and detailed, the episode on sounding selection and contouring was an in-depth exposure to the concept and guidelines . However, some episodes are missing from the topics. Also some of the exam questions were in Spanish though I selected English
