Reviews

Our students love the freedom, flexibility and support we offer. See what they're saying about Sophia's courses.

by Jeffrey M. on January 19, 2017
Great course and enjoy the options to choose different Professors, however, I would have appreciated transcripts for all of the videos.
by Jacob M. on January 11, 2017
some questions are asking something, and multiple answers could be right. I did not like how that was set up, but it allowed me to succeed in the course
Sophia replied on January 12, 2017

Hi Jacob -- You likely noticed that each question comes with a "Submit Feedback" link. Students can use that link to request a review or challenge a wrong answer. Those submissions are promptly reviewed and addressed by our staff. Congratulations on your achievement, and we hope to see you again.

This course is good for anyone who needs a stats course for a prerequisite. No homework but it does take time to get through each module.
by Kavita N. on January 8, 2017
This course was very difficult, especially for someone who has not taken math for five years. The concepts towards the end got extremely tough. However, if you take time to learn the concepts and use the tutoring services you should do fine. The last section needs some work to so students can understand the concepts better; and perhaps having more time to finish the course overall. I felt relieved after I passed this course, it was like a heavy load was lifted off my shoulders!
by Ashley B. on January 6, 2017
I would add something as fine print explaining that if you have ever had issues learning math this is NOT the course for you.
Sophia replied on January 9, 2017

Hi Ashley - Thanks for your feedback. Yes, we understand that Math does not come easily for many of our students. That's why we have "on demand" tutoring available within the courseroom, 24x7. We also have our team of learning coaches to help along the way. Congratulations on your successful course completion!

by Clifford "Chip" M. on January 6, 2017
I would like to thank all the tutors who helped me with this course, you rock!
by Adriana C. on January 5, 2017
Super easy but learned a lot! Sometimes lessons were out of order (I learned how to do z and p scores etc before i even learned what one vs two tailed t tests were) or certain instructors taught specific terms which others didn't but which then came up in exams. Overall I loved it!
by Matthew T. on December 30, 2016
Overall a ok course. The lecture videos droned on quite a bit, and I found keeping focus difficult. I am not a fan of the challenge and touchstone questions as I think the method of asking a question with several near perfect answers and you have to decide which is better than the others is frustrating. On the writing pieces, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of detailed marking and feedback I received back.
