Just a quick tip. If you have problems accessing the video content on the course try switching to another browser. I had problems viewing with Internet Explorer but Chrome was fine.

Thanks Allister,

that's good to know.

I'm currently reading the pre course eBook. I'm getting there but it seems to assume a certain level of cellular function knowledge.

I covered it as a precursor to kicking off my degree many years ago but not to the level in the book!

Still, I'll not let it beat me. I read a chapter a day, re-read it the next day (to make sure it has sunk in) and then on to the next chapter...

I must say it has been very interesting so far. :)

 

cheers

Put the flags out – finally found this topic – is it me or the search facility? Anyways thanks Allister for link. Don’t as yet have home broadband so unsure if mobile and downloading course material from other PC to transfer to my laptop would work OK. So far its fine as week 1 is completed. Time will tell if other weeks work out OK. I do recommend this course – if not too late give it a try.

Thanks Allister,

I can strongly recommend this course for anyone interested in cancer and it's sneaky ways.
It gives you a good insight into the how, what, why, when, where type of questions.
It is not PCa specific but it gives a good grounding in 'understanding thine enemy'

All the best

Thanks Allister

Absolutely go for it. What’s there to lose? There were some comments that the course was not as advanced as some thought. Which hopefully help makes the point its more about what Kevin points out. So you don’t need any science degrees or A levels etc just a willingness to put in a bit of effort. To me understanding more fully the enemy and (own view here) how much its more down to just bad luck in getting the particular type/version of cancer in the first place rather than lifestyle etc. I’ve no doubts they play a part, but it might help some folks to stop beating themselves up it’s entirely their own fault.

As regards course content: I don’t have home broadband so went to library each Monday, downloaded the weeks course content, not forgetting the transcripts, to memory stick then copied to laptop at home.

Good luck

I am too late. Think it was nice and helpful information at this course. Maybe somebody have some video?
