by Abiodun Lilian J. on June 13, 2024
very straightforward and explanatory course.
by Vanessa T. on June 13, 2024
Useful, I plan on keeping the notes and pdfs for future reference. Challenging questions on the final exam, though I feel some are re-hashes of similar to unit test questions. Could use some challenging questions occasionally, or some long-word questions. Regardless, easy to understand but dually fun.
by Alejandro A. on June 13, 2024
Class is easy to follow & explanations/feedback provided is clearly understood.
by lauren h. on June 12, 2024
very helpful and love the learn on your own pace
by MELANIE T. on June 12, 2024
I wrote a paper and received a low grade. I thought I did a good job.
by Darian C. on June 12, 2024
amazing
by DANIELA S. on June 12, 2024
This is very challenging and I thought I would enjoy more because I do like economy; however, too many graphics...
