This course was the worst online course I have ever taken. I would never recommend this course or "school" to anyone. If it wasn't for the fact that I needed this intro to stats class to finalize my entrance to Nurse Practitioner school I wouldn't have taken it. I have a BSN and graduated with honors and 3 children and tow and this class was the hardest class I have ever taken due to lack of structure, lack of information, and if it wasn't for the fact that I'm pretty good at teaching myself then I would've severely failed this course. Take at your own risk.

Congratulations on your successful course completion Allison. You did great in the course and worked hard to do as well as you did. We know this is a rigorous subject and students often benefit from more resources. We offer direct tutoring from our team, and also "on demand" tutoring available with a click of the mouse from within your course. Best wishes for your continued academic success! Thank you for taking this course with us.

Fairly straight forward course, I agree with other reviews that the questioning isn't the best and multiple answers could work. Nether-the-less, it kept me a amused for a couple of days.

Loved the accessibility and ease of this course! Would recommend it to anyone! Thank you!

Short, sweet, and to the point. 10/10!!!
by Lauren M. on August 4, 2017
this is such a difficult subject to tackle. i needed to complete a stats course for a pre-requisite requirement and i am really glad i chose sophia. it was less expensive than most online courses, there was plenty of help along the way, and the convenience of completing each unit at my own pace is incomparable.

good experience with Sophia...

I agree with other assessments about the quick progression to difficult material in Unit 6. I also felt that the tutorials available in Unit 6 were "less" than the other Units, and it was definitely the most challenging material. From a content perspective, it was almost like Unit 6 contained as much/more/difficult concepts as the other five units combined. I liked having the option of multiple instructors and used all of them at points during the course.

It was a good course overall. I learned things I didn't know about Visual Design.
