    Re: grasp

    "I could understand" or "I learned."

    I don't know what you mean by "precious knowledge."

    I want to say my previous courses were very useful for understanding Toxicology and they will be good foundation for my future education (in Toxicology)

    Thank you SoothingDave
    Except the meaning of "I could grasp very precious knowledge regarding toxicology during my education".Did I use regarding correctly ? I meant to say in related to toxicology

    Re: grasp

    "Regarding" is used properly.
