by Shawnette P. on May 25, 2024
Some of the questions were a bit confusing and hard to match up with the subject matter.
by Sylvia T. on May 25, 2024
This course challenged me in applying critical thinking.
by elian a. on May 24, 2024
thank you for no putting touchstones, they are a pain in the ahh, also thank you for not giving us proctored exams, you guys are literally changing lives here, Jesus bless you all
by Luke A. on May 24, 2024
The course material was informative, well laid out and organized consistently throughout the different units. However, no explanations for the right/wrong answers were given in any of the quizzes, and this made it very difficult to understand why you may have picked the wrong answer - especially with many of the questions seemingly having ambiguous or multiple answers which could conceivably be correct. It did not allow me to learn from my mistakes or correct areas where I may have not properly understood.

just tough. but i got threw it
