Mam lecture smjh aa jaata hai ache se but after Passing some time I forget that suddenly confidence goes down...
Lectures are of 10-15 mins, if you feel that you have forgotten you must rewatch and revise. So far as content is concerned, this is the best that can be offered so far as competitive exams are concerned.
