Hi,

1) What else can I say when a teacher jumps from one point to another too quickly without fully explaining them?

Maybe 'bursting through the points'. Does anything else come to mind?

2) Do these two make sense?

"It's been a year since I took a course in accounting, so most of the stuff I'd learned escaped my memory."

"It's been a year since I took a course in accounting, and since I don't really use what I learnt there, I dismissed most it from my mind."

I know that I can say it differently, but I'm curious about these two examples.

Thank you.

'bursting through the points' would not occur to me. In fact, I don't think I use the verb 'burst' more than once every 10 years. I might try

The teacher skims through the material too quickly.
The teacher's explanations are too superficial.
The teacher doesn't explain the points in enough depth.

I once heard something like the following as well:

The teacher is so anxious to cover all the material that he succeeds in covering it very well. (The speaker makes the hand motion of covering something as with a lid when saying the last part.)

Yes, they make sense.

You could say they go too fast for that they are too quick.

They do but they're not the most obvious way to put it. It would be simpler to say so I forgot most of it.
