Can be completed quickly if needed, but I would take my time and actually learn the material before taking the milestones. Overall good class and quite interesting if you are getting into the field of business.
Class was very informative, easy to follow along.
This course had some concepts that were a little complicating but the instructor did a great job explaining them in simple ways. I listened to most of the videos on 2x speed and used the text as reference material.
Super informative and fast course. Thank you Sophia!
Not a bad class. Took 9 days!
This class was so hard! I learned a lot, but had to read the material over and over. I'm glad that I finally completed the course and can put it behind me.
Was not a fan of this course but I'm glad it's over & I was able to complete it. Super long challenges & milestones with repetitive questions, felt like I was going around in circles.
It was a piece of perfect knowledge.
I am so thankful a friend recommended Sophia to me! The program makes learning fun and easy, not to mention fast!
Lots of information, and explained well with examples.
Lowkey hated this class
I took this after the Sophia Macroeconomics and this course was easier to understand with all the terminology I learned and rolled over from macro. The video tutorials help reinforce concepts.
Great course! Thank you, Sophia!!!
Overall this was a good class with a lot of information. I would have liked there to be a way to practice some of the formulas such as type in answers to a table to ensure concepts were grasped and able to be practiced.
Not as difficult as I thought it would be, overlaps with macroeconomics, so I had knowledge already of alot of the concepts
The class was fine, but I hated the subject material. I am glad it is completed.
This was very informative. I found myself reading the text more than the Powerpoint presentations. However, the Instructor was clear and seemed to enjoy the subject which was nice. Lots of "real world examples'.
Took me awhile!
