The flexibility to do this on my own time at my own pace is ideal. I have already recommended Pathways to my mom who is also completing her bachelor's degree at Capella University.

Thank you! I thought that class was difficult and spent a lot of time studying and getting refreshed on concepts I last learned about in HS! I appreciate all of your assistance. I liked using SOPHIA and will do so again in the future for sure!
