by Pranav Jois K. on July 10, 2024
very good, but is fails to correctly explain some parts or doesn't have enough examples. overall, it was very easy to understand and to use.
by Sean M. on July 10, 2024
liked this class
by Heather F. on July 10, 2024
I guess its fine but soooo boring.
by Richard L. on July 10, 2024
Excellent course. Well laid out and actually a bit more difficult than expected, but that was a welcomed surprise. I enjoyed it.
by Tonica G. on July 10, 2024
Thanks!
by Kevin L. on July 10, 2024
pretty easy for some one that has worked in IT for many years. Glad I went this route
by Philippe Y. on July 10, 2024
The introduction at the beginning of the course was great. Everything went smoothly. But my only concern is that sometimes, the Identification Process of the course cause me some problems: I tried to write the represented SENTENCE as they told me in the blank space. But at first, the blank space refused to accept my writing. But outside of that, the course was GREAT! I will recommend Sophia Learning for any busy person who want to take an advantage on his life.
by Kierstin K. on July 10, 2024
Loved this course, as a Catholic, it really opened my eyes to other religions.
