" This is my last herbal course and I am so sad it is over.  This was a great ending.  The summary was wonderful.  I can't believe how much I've learned - every section, I would add on so much to my knowledge and it always functioned as a review.  Dr. Xie, you have done so much for TCVM in the US.  The level of practice is going to continue to improve because of your great instruction."
