Environmental Science reviews
Very difficult topics even with following along with the tutorials, but of course science isn't my strongest subject but I learned alot of interesting things.
Good basic knowledge and relevant to saving our planet.
Some of the wording of the questions / answers doesn't match correctly with the teachings in the chapters. Slight variations in percentages in the texts and questions makes things seem questionable.
This course was interesting, I learned a lot of things that I thought I knew but I had it all wrong. Environmental Science needs to be a mandatory course for everyone, it can help improve the world we live in.
Excellent course! Learned a bit along the way!
I have taken many Sophia courses. This course lacks glossary items. I am a visual learner. This was the worst presentation or video of any course. Jensen read the pdf. Instead of summarizing it in a powerpoint.
Complete and interesting course. I appreciate every single course of Sophia, they are so well structured and interesting
Just pay attention and read. The answers are in the readings.
very helpful. it helps me to learn more and more .
Amazing course, gave me so much insight on the world and how humans fit into it all.
Easy flow of knowledge, test questions were worded oddly.
Fairly easy course to follow and understand.
Awesome, engaging course!
Started this class last night and it is now 3:07pm. I was able to finish in less than 24 hours, but my brain is fried! The final milestone was easy as long as you study your other milestones. It was good, but not my fav class.
informative wish there was essays, but helpful thanks!
I enjoyed learning about the effects humans have on earth and how we have increasingly caused harm to the planet. I also enjoyed learning ways I can counter act some of those destructive behaviors.
Great course! I wouldn't say science is my favorite subject but I learned a lot and it wasn't difficult.
Done in less than 24 hours
A lot of interesting information, but some of the Milestone wording sometimes did not seem to match with the Tutorials and could be a bit misleading.
