Student Reviews

Podría ser peor
Provided by U-Multirank rated 3 out of 5 stars

Las preguntas están bien. Con respecto a mi universidad creo que los horarios de las clases y las prácticas no están compensadas, aveces son muy ajustadas y apenas tenemos tiempo para comer. Esta bien hacer trabajos siempre y cuando tengamos tiempo suficiente para hacerlos, presentarlos y además poder preparar los exámenes.
