College Readiness reviews
Amazing class loaded with great information!
I actually liked the course. it was hard to get a hang of. They essay for the final grade didn't make much sense, but overall worth it
great course content
I really learned a lot of different things and myself and college.
the easiest class yet.
Super easy course and you learn a lot!
I found this course to be a great introduction to how to be successful in college. While I was already very aware of much of it a new college student might not be. I also enjoyed the touchstone which forces you to review your own goals and really create a path forward. Once you have a goal written down and clear steps it becomes more attainable. Forcing me to write this down really helped me to narrow down my goals and see them as possible.
Great class! The paper was the best part :)
Thank you . The course was easy to understand and well drawn out.
I found the material challenging but it made you get involved, the time for the test was good, if you have a disability you will need more time to read the answer, the check mark was very helpful to let you know where you need to go back and look at.
Great course. Super Easy! Only one touchstone but I got mine graded in three days so that was good. Do take!
Great course and easy
BEST course I've taken!
Fast and fun course.
AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I am so happy
Great course to prepare you for what's to lie ahead on your college journey. Easy and fast course!
