Good!! Informative!!

I am a new nurse awaiting international licensure in Canada. This has been awesome for review as I’ve only graduated last year but haven’t worked due to the lengthy licensing process. The only thing I’d say is that the sound/audio quality is pretty terrible. It would be a 5 rating if the sound could be better.
