easy to follow in 5 reviews

It is well paced and easy to follow and whilst it is obviously only covering the basics I feel that I have learnt a lot about the human skull, muscles and how a facial reconstruction is undertaken.

The course was broken down into short bite sized chunks which were interesting and easy to follow, with a variety of articles, videos and short tests/questionnaires.

I liked the way the course was broken down into small bite size sections because it made it easy to follow (and you could dip in and out of studying easily).

The course materials in very easy to follow with a great mixture of media to keep you gripped.

real life in 4 reviews

The section on the ethnicity of skulls was most confusing and am sure this is how it is in real life with travel and international marriages and offspring being a bit of both.

The fact that the course was based on real life made it even more interesting and relevant.

Not that I ever expect to need to do this in real life, but it was undeniably interesting.
