I have been using this material for 7 years in Neuroscience classes in Medical Schools in 3 countries - Seychelles, St. Kitts-Nevis, St. Lucia. 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.
