SL Intro to Sociology ebook and SL advice
#1
I would like to know if anyone has ever found the Straighterline Into to Sociology book in an ebook format? If so where? I know that most people say it is easier to complete the SL courses with the ebooks. I would also welcome any suggestions you have on the Intro to Sociology and Cultural Anthropology SL courses. Has anyone ever taken the Spanish courses? I would love to hear your opinion on those too.

For anthropology, you can either buy the e-textbook, or rent the hardcover and use the included 7day e-book access. I chose the latter. And was able to finish the course in less then 7 days. When the textbook came in the mail, I simply returned it and got a refund.

Ironheadjack, you have been so amazingly helpful! Thank you! When you say it took you 7 days to finish the course do you mean seven days of grueling work with no breaks... or even time to breathe? In my current situation my parents depend on me quite a bit so I can't just check out for a couple days. How much time did you spend on average each day? Do you do all the reading assignments ect... or just find the answers? Sorry for all the questions. Yes, I am one of those people... the kind that have to know everything before I start a test!

Lol, I'm the exact same way.

I would say total time it took me was about ~8 hours. I'm one of those people that once I start something I have to finish. I simply opened each quiz and the book, and searched the book for the answer. IMO, I don't find the lessons in the SL modules very helpful at all, so I just search for the answers.

The only subject where I read the book before the test was Western Civ. II, because it was kicking my butt.

I totally second Ironheadjack. The modules don't prepare you at all for the test, which is why I rarely watched them. What I did was I'd go right into reading the material, maybe taking a practice quiz, and then doing the graded quizzes. Since the format is open book, you can look up the answers. Be aware, though, that the questions are worded in such a way that you might still have to guess even with the book. Read the book with a highlight pen, and mark the concepts you think will be asked. I always marked the bolded or italicized words, since those concepts usually will be referred to in the tests. Use the index liberally.

If you don't have a whole lot of time, spend an hour reading the assignments, then later set aside the required time for the tests. Doing each course in a week is totally doable, even on a restricted schedule.

Do you have any insight you would like to share regarding Intro to Philosophy? I just finished my first quiz.

Thanks
