very brief...was not that helpful with minimum information in the slides....wouldn't recommend it. If you got more facts and was more of a revision with quiz and questions, it would be more helpful and more accurate. 

Thank you for reading this all the way :) 

I would be grateful if you listened to my requests. Maybe then I would give full stars or at least higher than a one out of five stars ;)

AnuShIeE thank you once again.
