Since I have a great fear of math and numbers, this was a tough challenge for me. However, thanks to Sophia, I now earned three credits! yay!

not my favorite
by Emiko S. on September 30, 2023
It was a hard topic. I have always struggled with math so the overall idea of teaching myself and learning by myself… it was unbelievable…. I had a rough time with this course but… study the “pre milestone” test… follow the formulas. I give this a 5 star rating because it truly didn’t take a long time. I knocked it out once I figured out the formulas. Good luck guys.
by Tejas V. on September 30, 2023
Quite challenging. It would be beneficial to have some hints provided when encountering mathematical formulas.

Honestly this course was harder than I thought It would be. Be sure to watch the videos.
