    1. Hi nick , hope you’re having great holiday in norway . I have a question regarding pharma 1 topics :

      I printed the topics on 9th of September. My friend told me that you added extra notes to topics ( so far I haven’t found anything yet ) . so, have you added extra notes to topics after the 9/9/2019 ? 😅

      P.S, Thanks for the great website 🖖🏻

      1. Hey!

        On the top of every topic is the time when the topic was last changed. That way you can see if any topics were modified after 9/9. But yes, I went through all pharma 1 topics and improved them in November.

        Glad you like the website!
