This is the type of review I have been craving for years! Slow but effective pace, visual representation and review at the conclusion of each section permits higher retention of the information for me. I am planning on reviewing each one a few more times to solidify the information for use in my clinical practice and documentation. Thank you, thank you thank you!!!
