  • Great but except for 1 case, not free!

    by Lazulizule

    I teach biochem and I love this book. I think this app is a bit misadvertised because while it is great, it is not free. Only the first case is free. The other 50 cases require a purchase of the app.

  • Very nice collection of cases

    I enjoyed this app a lot and I hope there will be second part, hopefully with more advanced cases :-).
