Business Law reviews
The time on the test should be longer than 90minutes. I found myself rushing through each scenario. But other than that, the course and the material itself were great!
I hated this class. Law is not for me.
This was a wonderful, albeit difficult class. I learned a lot and I found the touchstone challenging, but still very doable. Completed the course in a month but could have finished faster had I been able to work on it more than once a week.
This class was the most difficult class out of the four I have taken with Sophia. Definitely required the most time.
Thank you Sophia and instructors for making such a great course
Enjoyed the class. Difficult touchstone.
It would have been great to have explained why the answer chosen was correct or incorrect. I felt like my answers to the questions were genuinely correct only to find out they were wrong. To have the reasons why something is wrong or right broken down in simpler terms would be very helpful in learning.
I wish there are more video lectures I can watch and learn. I greatly appreciate the grader graded my touchstone assignment. She gave me a detailed feedback and I enjoyed reading it. Thank you!
I truly enjoyed this and learned a lot.
The instructions for the touchstone in the middle of the course are not clear. What was laid out, I completed, but in the grading rubric I was dinged for things not properly defined in the instruction. Overall, I passed the challenges & milestones just fine but was graded horrendously for the touchstone.. it almost made me fail the class. Two thumbs down.
The course was awesome and challenging
The content in the course can be a bit boring at times, but just take your time and read carefully however the touchstone took forever to grade and grader also nitpicked at everything.
Class was very difficult. The touchstone is graded by a Dr. I passed with a 74, and I spent awhile on it. Good luck
I hated it because I hate studying; however, I am beyond thankful that this CLEP test was available through SOPHIA, and it saved me a bunch of tuition money. Thank you SOPHIA people.
Touchstone was a bit challenging but it was a great class!
Overall the course was a bit challenging but through the end I learned a lot and earned a passing grade.
I failed this class the first time. I did way better the second time. The touchstone grader was different than the last one. Much better and worth taking this class!
This was a great course. I learned a lot!
I personally feel as if the challenges did not provide enough detail into the lessons to approach the milestone and touchstone confidently.
