I did 5 courses during my one month subscription. Each course took appx one or two days. I didn't like their test questions at all (nor their history take!) and cancelled after 1 month. I started Holocaust Lit as well, passing the first half in one day, but decided to not renew my subscription or finish it the last day of my month as there were a lot of links broken, etc. (I was also working on other classes that month and in and out of hospital with my mom- but I did get my money's worth out of it)
Modern European History I did in one afternoon.
I had a massive amount of knowledge on the 5 courses I took (used to teach them) so just did all the tests and didn't read anything much, HOWEVER... they don't ask objective anything. It's all entirely subjective! no way half the time to now what they want! Very weird...I got bogged down hating it, but wanted my money's worth!

I found the Lit courses much more subjective than the History ones. Bible as Lit was more like a history course than Lit.
Currently: Studying for Strategic Mgmt TECEP only.

People always refer to the "odd questions" on Shmoop. Could someone give a mock example of what this means?
I didn't keep track of the questions but I can tell you, in a lot of cases they have four options to choose from and none of them are right or they have four options to choose from and two of them are definitely right but you have to try to remember the exact wording they used to clue you in on which one they want you to pick. I was frustrated because I knew the material backward and forward on some of the sections but it didn't matter. I could quote the entire sonnet in Shakespeare and understand it but that wasn't important. I had to answer it in whatever convoluted way they wanted it.

American History After 1877 - A lot of the questions seem obscure and not only do some questions seem to have no right answers or 2 right answers - some seem to have 3 or four right answers. Knowing American History isn't enough. You have to closely read the material.
