Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
The material is clearly laid out, accurate and integrates content well.
The material is of high quality and is clearly and well written
The site holds an extensive range of materials for and student who wishes to review material.
The images, though while clear, are rather small, the ability to see a larger version of image would be helpful
