I really enjoyed taking this course. It helped to expand my knowledge of medical terminology. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about diagnostic procedures and treatments the most, as it has made things a bit more clear in my medical coding studies.
I really enjoyed the course and found it to be beneficial to my career goals and aspirations. It was extremely convenient and the cost is more than reasonable.
Wonderful course that enhanced my knowledge...Loved the "Important to Know" section of each disease. Very helpful. The images and quick evaluation quizzes were great!
Great course! I learned a lot. It was simply written, yet very comprehensive. I especially liked how the instructor expanded upon each of the terms to further the learning experience. Thank you!
I loved how indepth this course was! I felt as though I was taking an anatomy, biology, and medical terminology class all in one. Breaking down each part of the lesson by the system, diseases, treatments, and procedures was a great way to expand the lesson well beyond just terminology. GREAT class!! Thank you so much Holly!
