College Readiness reviews
Simple enough, takes a while to get a touchstone graded though.
I learned a lot about what to expect from my college experience. This course should be required for all students entering college so that they are prepared for college courses and will be more successful with their studies.
Okay I’m not going to lie I was hesitant about everything but I decided to give Sophia a try and I absolutely love this way better than actually attending class for my general Ed courses. I completed my courses extremely fast all while taking my own notes and quizzes and test all at my own pace.
I really enjoyed and gained knowledge during the class.. I will be recommending your school to my friends.
This course was very informative and provided me with a lot of Good knowledge!
Very easy course to complete. I learned a lot. I wish I would have taken a course like this when I began College.
I thought this course was very informative. Very easy to complete.
Great information with easy to follow dialogue.
It was a very nice course. Excellent design and flow.
This course was awesome. There was plenty of good information even for a college junior.
I do not agree with the written assessment evaluation. My work looked very similar to the example and yet was unfairly given a low grade.
I so enjoyed this class. I really liked the comments by Professor Davis and appreciate his insight! Highly recommend this class!
Great information. Helpful tips. Easy to follow. Thank you, Sophia!
This was a great course!!
Completed in one morning. A lot of questions are common sense. The touchstone was fun. Great course.
Great course to prepare you for college. If you're already in college a great way to fill up an elective as you should be able to finish the class in a single sitting.
