Business Law reviews
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.
challenging and informative course
Great course! I am anticipating taking a few more courses through Sophia Learning to finish by Bachelors earlier in the school I am enrolled in. My adviser told me about this program and I am enjoying it so far!
The content of the Business Law course was clear and easy to understand, as well as engaging. I enjoyed this course.
Very understandable and easy to finish.
This was my first class and I must say it was not hard to understand and when I needed help and called the staff was very helpful! I am not about to start my 2nd class and hope it goes smoothly as well if so I will be doing at least 4 more classes here!
This is a tough course.The most difficult course I have ever taken on sophia.org.
The course is alright, but I am just not that interested in law, so I found it difficult and boring. I received a score of 84 percent, and it took me about 35 to 40 days to complete the course. However, the low star review is due to the fact that the Sophia Learning Coaches NEVER answer back. I have emailed them multipule times lately and waited weeks for an answer. At the "Lets Chat" button the people are helpful and nice. I do not want the Sophia Coaches to necessarily admit I am right: I just want something to tell me that they gave that thought all the attention it deserves. If this was not a review on the course and experiance then I would rate it one star.
The Business Law class was definitely an enjoyable class for me. I had taken Intro to Business beforehand, which probably helped out a bit. The course text was the largest of any class that I've taken through Sophia thus far, but it was interesting and didn't feel like a grind at any point. The class Touchstone (essay) assignment was solid (I overthought it - keep it simple and stick to the rubric) and I think there's worthwhile information within the class for anyone participating in the modern world of business.
The course was difficult and I felt like I learned a lot. Some of the questions were confusing, but not sure if that was my lack of knowledge or the wording of the questions.
