Some of the questions in the milestones had answers that didn’t format correctly to my phone so I had to guess off of a small portion of the answer that was visible but otherwise I liked how the class was set up.

I found studying business to be dull and boring. Also some of the questions didn't have very clear answers, unfortunately I didn't jot these down to share later as I didn't realize there would be a place to give a review.

Liked it a lot, though a question or two seemed too broad while wanting a narrow answer, when the 4 answers are correct to a question yet only 1 being the answer the course wants. Example the question asking to define a whole subject matter into a couple words but somehow an answer that's included in that partition to be counted as wrong. I was not so much worried about my score, but more worried that is can confuse the subject as a whole by considering the answer as wrong.

Over all I personally enjoyed taking this course, but at times it seemed a little unfair because it goes head to head with your own business choices. For example there were two options that could both be correct in the situation but only one of them is the correct answer. but again thats only a miniscule problem within this course. Otherwise it was a well put together course.

Lack of interest for me. Probably a good course for most people who are driven with business goals in mind. I really had to force myself through it. Thats education and I am hopefully coming out more educated than I was going it.

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.
