    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This isn't really one of those classes where you can recommend or not recommend as it is required whether you know how to take online classes or not. This was however my first online class that I had ever taken and the first one in the University of Phoenix program. If you have never taken any type of online program this would be a good course to get the hang of things, however if you are proficient at using a computer it really is a bit of a waste of time. Within the first week you understand how to do most everything and the assignments are mostly to get you to understand why you shouldn't bully other students nor plagiarize and cheat. If it was a choice I wouldn't recommend it, if it were free I would say why not, however charging nearly two thousand dollars for something that should've been an interactive tutorial after sign-ups may have left a sour taste in my mouth.

    Course highlights:

    As I had stated earlier this is a decent course for getting the hang of learning how to use the internet system for University of Phoenix. If you have never had an internet class before or have never used the online portal it is a good crash course in doing that. Other than that, it isn't really used to teach you anything else aside form how to use the system itself.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for students would be to do your best in this course, it is required and may be extremely simple and something that you don't really want to have to do but it does count for a grade so don't let the easy part make you take it for granted. Use it, get that A and consider it good practice for your next class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    /This was my first course entering the University of Phoenix. I started 09/20/2016 and ended on 10/24/2016. The book that we did our reading from was called "Becoming a Master Student." This was a basic course about how important the decision to go to get more education to pursue your dreams, managing family/work, TIME, encouraged determinatioin and motivation, dicussed financial area of college. It also had few chapters that helped students discover how they learn easiest and what type of learner they are. At the end the book talked about Critical thinking and how it is used to learn how you think in situations in real life. It was a great first course. Very informative and motivating. Now the course I am in now is going in to depth of critical thinking and how it is used in everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    Time Management, organization with work/family, learning style, setting goals. Steps to success with confidence, determination and integrity.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Very beneficial and informative. Gave me more determination and motivation to pursue my career.
