Introduction to Statistics reviews
The course was challenging and much longer than the other courses but I learned a lot and appreciated the resources provided to help me. Thank you Sophia!
Tougher than most of the courses, take good notes and use the video tutorials.
Class was okay. I am terrible at math and this made it easier to follow along.
Very useful course
This course is really hard! I gave it 3 stars because the course tutorial barely helped with the challenges and milestones. Almost gave up but stuck it out and passed. On the good side you can go at your own pace and save a bunch of money versus the university.
It is fun to understand
thank you I don't think I could have done this on my own
This course was a life-saver for someone that usually doesn't like numbers and math. Great instructors and high quality tutorials! I learned so many important base-skills and concepts in a fun and pedagogical way. Best course I have taken at Sophia Learning so far!
Ive learned alot and some was just review for me.
I recommend this course to anyone who is having a hard time with statistics. Thank you!
a little difficult but the material is well covered in the tutorials. I just read the Sophia tutorials and did not listen to the recorded ones.
Challenging, but educational. I really appreciated the video tutorials. They were very helpful and I recommend them for every student.
This is one of the hardest courses I've taken so far. Not complicated, but a lot of different aspects to the subject.
This has by far been the hardest Sophia course for me. Don't skip on the practice milestones because they're extremely helpful for the real ones!
I really enjoyed taking this course. The ability to complete the workload at my own pace was great. Especially, because I am working from home. The examples and supporting documents were also very helpful.
Great informative class
It is nice having different learning and teacher options. One teacher/tutorial can be easy to follow for certain segments, while others need to dive deeper, so it is nice to have this option for varying learning styles.
