I have used this material for 6 years in Neuroscience classes in Medical schools in 2 different countries - Seychelles and St. Kitts-Nevis. Using this material, Basic Science Medical student's average grade in National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Shelf Exam in Neuroscience reached a peak of 480 (3-digit NBME score), with a Median value of 493 (3-digit NBME score) in the Fall of 2011. This is close to US National average figure.
