This is much better than the other version I played. Very good graphics, gives a person a good understanding of blood types and who can receive what type. My lovely patients were AB-, O+, and B-. I didn't kill anyone! Hooray!

I loved it. It's so much more interesting to learn through games and interaction than reading through tons of text. Even though reading IS essential, activities such as these really do help to visualize what is happening.

This game is well-designed in terms of teaching content. I used this with my own students and would like to recommend it to other educators as well.

great game might consider bein a doctor now!

This is very interesting, but for the average student it would be boring. In my experience of Biology, I found this over the top and extremaly intreeging. I loved the pictures and all the detailed information. (sorry about the bad spelling) =^\_^=

This nerve signaling interactive presentation is awesome! It was easy to understand, and had great pictures and diagrams to explain what was being talked about! The layout was also very appealing, I liked how the slides were all shown along the neuron at the top :)

I just like to thank for putting up this kind of site in their website. Professors like me who teach neurochemistry will ease my burden in explaining this topic to my students by showing them this slides. Congratulations!!!!!
