There were a few sections that didn't seem quite clear throughout the lesson but all in all I'd recommend this course prior to a normal statistical course.

The information in the tutorials does not accurately explain the questions throughout the challenges. It was difficult to understand concepts because they were not adequately explained.

This was really hard, had to take it twice in order to pass.

For someone who hasn't taken math in a long time, this course was hard. However, when I took it the second time and took very detailed notes, I understood it a whole lot better.

There several typographical errors in this class.

Dr. Laub's volume variance pattern of high (beginning sentence) and low (end of sentence) gives the impression that there is a strong correlation of volume and importance to the words said. That is rejected. And hard to concentrate on the information when he repeats this style.

I thought I wasn't going to do well in this class. The tutorials were a great help!

The course was actually interesting. The videos were easy to understand. I like the fact that I could pause and go back to take notes as well as have the pdf form to read over.

FAQ

  • Q: Does Sophia accept third-party payment for tuition, such as financial aid or military benefits?
    A: Sophia courses are not eligible for most third party payment methods, and must be paid for by credit or debit card. Tuition is due at the time of course registration. Sophia offers both full and partial payment plans as part of the registration process.
  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?
    A: You choose your own start date and have 60 days to complete each course. However, because the courses are self-paced, you can complete them in fewer than 60 days.
  • Q: Where do I get the textbooks for my course?
    A: You do not need any textbooks for Sophia courses. All material is taught by video and text-based tutorials that are in the course room, and are included in the cost.
  • Q: How am I graded in the course?
    A: Your overall score is derived from how you do on two types of assessments: Challenges, which are formative assessments, and Milestones, which are summative assessments. Sophia’s English Composition I, Foundations of English Composition, and Public Speaking courses also include written assignments, called Touchstones, that also contribute to your overall score.
  • Q: How do I know which courses I should take?
    A: Consult with your academic adviser at your university to determine specifically which Sophia courses could fit into your program. You can download the course syllabus directly from our site to share with your school advisor.
