Environmental Science reviews
simply amazing. +1
I appreciate the convenience of this course. However, there are areas that contradict each other.
Great pace with interesting material !
Very interesting and easy to understand course. I feel like it covered the most important topics allowing me to absorb the most necessary concepts.
Very interesting course and thank you all Sophia team for the good work you're doing for the students!
I feel like the wording of some of the questions made it difficult to understand the actual question. I do think I learned a lot though and appreciated the lay of the course.
Some of the question were similar
Great Class! Really learned a lot!
very easy! just READ :)
While the course was great the Milestone Practice tests were not useful to actual tests. The concepts and questions asked were not comparable. While it was information was within the challenges it often required reflection not specific facts or information that could be found. This left some grey area in answers.
It took me two full weeks to complete this course. Unit 1-2 are a bit difficult, the rest of them are easy. The final test is safe enough to pass with a high grade. Thanks for the tutorial.
Great learning experience. Really enjoyed the course!
It was a great course, l got some insights and knowledge about the science of the environment I live. Good experience!
Kind of hard, but very informative.
Information was fine, but wording of the questions could have been a lot better
Fun and informative
what an awesome way to complete Gen Ed courses for the extremely busy parent!
Great topic, and very detailed information
More difficult due to the phrasing of the questions (for example: which one is NOT, which answer is FALSE, and so on).
Great class to take to get a science credit out of the way. Definetely one of the easier classes I have taken through SOPHIA. If you have a few hours a day and can read quick course can be finished in 3-4 days.
