Reviews

Our students love the freedom, flexibility and support we offer. See what they're saying about Sophia's courses.

by Meredith G. on February 15, 2017
Like most online classes, it's good to have a bit of a base already. But this class covers all the basics well and is easy to follow.
by Dena W. on February 13, 2017
More problems with answers would be beneficial to solidify the concepts
by Brittany C. on February 10, 2017
This was a good course. I thought it was well organized and the concepts were easy to understand.
by Kandice B. on February 8, 2017
This course had a lot of information. I went through every unit taking notes on the tutorials and every concept covered. So glad I did! It helped on the Milestones. I wish I could have used my notes, that I took throughout the course, on the final exam. Instead, Sophia only allowed one page of notes front & back. It was more time consuming, than if I could have used my own notes that were already done. (I was still thankful to be able to use notes on the final!!) It definitely took time to get through all the content in this course. This is definitely not a course for someone who is lazy or doesn't want to put forth the effort! I was thankful for the communication and responses, when I had questions! Overall, I think it was a pretty good experience. This was my first online course ever. I liked that I could work on this course at my own pace. :-) Thanks Sophia
by Krystle T. on February 5, 2017
I love SOPHIA! They are so understanding, patient and care for their students. They give you all the tools and support to help you understand each concept. I have dreaded to take Statistics all year and I am so thankful to have found Sophia.org, it was fun to learn! Thanks Sophia!
by Margaret P. on February 2, 2017
I learned a lot in this course, and am glad I took it, but Unit 6 was a big jump in difficulty compared with prior units, which was kind of imbalanced. It would have been helpful to have more conceptual teaching in unit six before getting into the problems. I loved the tutors! They taught so well!
by Tabitha S. on January 29, 2017
This is the second College Algebra class I have taken in the last 6 months and I love the way it was set up. I will definitely recommend Sophia to others!
by LaTeasha P. on January 25, 2017
I enjoyed the course overall, but I think it would have been more conducive to my learning if the challenge questions went in some type of sequence with the tutorials or if you arrange the program so the tutorials relating to the topic had to be completed first before the challenge questions. Particularly for some of the more difficult material it seems to be presented all over the place and it made it difficult to make connections that resulted in a more cohesive comprehension. Also I could not complete many calculations due to lack of calculator function knowledge and not having the correct calculator for some of the problems as well. So a tutorial about calculators, a supply list for the course to indicate what type is required, or also providing a hand taught method of completing the calculations would make a huge difference. Thanks!
