Hopefully it's enough to pass. If not, I guess I will have to resubmit them.

I'm sure you did fine on the papers. But since you did well on the final, then I definitely think it's enough to pass. 
They grade the papers very quickly. At least they did in my case.

This is my first time using SDC. I still haven't received credit for my exam I completed on the weekend. I took the LL Vietnam course first. 

Do you recommend doing the other history courses? I know very little about the civil war and the holocaust course looks to have 3 assignments. The topics for those look kinda tough compared to the Vietnam course. 

*Edit you were right about being quick to mark assignments, already received them back! Not bad at all.

They don't actually mark up the actual essays though, like Straighterline does? All that was included were the rubrics and comments.

-Yeah, they just use the rubric and the comments. They've never marked anything on my papers.

-They take longer to give official grades for the exam. I think it's always taken over a week in my case. 

-I highly recommend the other courses. I personally love history, but I don't think you need to know a lot about the subjects. They do a good job about starting at the beginning and keeping it pretty simple.
Yes, the Holocaust course does have three assignments and yes, I found that to be super annoying.But I didn't necessarily find any of the essays harder. I think I found the found the essays for the Civil War the easiest out of all three classes. 
If you choose to take them, I can share with you some of the sources I used.

Thank you! I may take criminal justice next to break it up a bit. After that, maybe I will do the civil war course. It seems like it has a lot of chapters though... 

I wish they had ww2 history courses!

Okay, just let me know. You can message me if you decide to take it. 
It is a lot of chapters, but it is very interesting.

The Holocaust class does have some information about World War 2. An entire course about it would be cool.
