The information presented in the lessons was not the information asked in the exams. The lessons were very informative, but the exams had very little or nothing nothing to do with the lesson before it. This was confusing and frustrating, and led me to no longer want to pursue other courses.

An excellent introductory overview of the sociology science. It was very interesting and as long as you read the textbook chapters you should do fine. The quizzes and exams are open book which I loved. I also find answering the optional questions at the end of the chapter helped with my retention of the material and made it easier to score well on the tests. Overall it was an interesting and relatively easy course to complete.

Introduction of Sociology. I was not impressed with this particular course. I would recommend taking it in a traditional class setting. It is a lot of reading

The actual course presentation are short and most of the test questions aren't covered. This is my first time not having textbook and somely relying on straighterline course presentation and I would say text book definitely required.

This course is very much designed specifically for privileged, white, middle- class students. That is who this curriculum is apparently intended for. If you don't have the right technology and other resources, it will be incredibly difficult to take the final exam.
