This was a hard course for me. Take A LOT of notes.
Course is extremly difficult with 90% true false and subjective questions that you need to know at least 3 answers for just to get the right one. I due not recommend this course! Some of the questions after reviewing and going back through the materials where not even covered in the subject matter!
Very informative! Also, takes a lot of focus.
This is my 4th Sophia class and by far the most challenging for me. Take your time and do the reading and learn the vocabulary. This is also the first course I watched video tutorials on and it was very helpful.
Great partner to Micro Economics class on Sophia. Great information and easy to follow along. Thanks Sophia.
good class take your time
This is my first completed class on here. It was actually pretty easy to follow and complete. I finished most of the the class in one day. 10/10 would recommend.
I enjoyed the course. I am a visual learner so the graphs were great. The questions were often, what is FALSE, which is difficult for me to reverse my understanding.
well designed course!!
Did not enjoy 'Kate', and some material from one lesson to the next was repetitive, while others seemed skimmed over
The effort you put into the course is very important. Take your time with the tutorials.
I learned a lot from this course. Take before Microeconomics!
The tools provided helped me succeed in this difficult subject of Macroeconomics.
This is by far the hardest class I've taken through Sophia. It's a ton of reading and expect a lot of redundancy in the content. You will definitely learn a lot though!
Great course material! As much as Economics tends to bore me, this was actually an interesting class and I understand a lot more about economics than I did. I'd recommend it!
Great course learned alot of good information from it.
long, but OK
Good course. Not too hard but the milestones can still be tricky.
I’m so happy and excited to be able to utilize this great resource!
