Seems like an excellent lecture. However, the camera rarely shows the screen, and even then only so far from the side that the illustrations cannot be seen.

i listen to every lecture from your side and these lectures are help ful because i can easily clear my concepts about science easily. i donot need to take help from other teacher because your side is a tutor and best tutor for me.

further i recommend that these lectures in the form of videos send to me so that i can easily listen them without paying extra money in a net cafe.

thanking you
