    Course companion book and additional important reading section provided at the end of every chapter. (June 2020)

  3. Nadeem

    Most useful and valuable thing I found was:
    1) Examples with each topic
    2) Assumption on which different theories based and their historical background
    3) Sir Adeel’s engagement for remaining topics and revision session.

  4. Shoaib

    The new technique used in online teaching, that glass board is very much interactive.

  5. Fazal Rehman

    Writing everything on the board was awesome, presentation was the most valuable for me because memorizing theories has been a challenge for me but because of use of charts and extensive amount of examples I am able to retain the concepts and main pointers.

  6. Faizan Rafiq

    The way of teaching is best. Never thought online can be more helpful than physical one.

  7. Zain

    Quality of the video and its technology is most useful and valuable.
