I am currently a college chemistry student and use this program on a weekly bases. My opinion of this program is extremely negative. The rage that is induced when I attempt to use this is immeasurable. The answer you put down must be exactly what is in the program because if you are off by even .001% it will mark it wrong and make you believe there is something wrong in your procedure when there is not. Rather than accepting that a student knows how to do a type of problem but uses a different number of sig-figs, it will tell you that you did something wrong and not that you used the incorrect number of digits when either calculating or reporting. I do not recommend this program at all.
I’m an Econ student and in class I genuinely enjoy the subject. However, this website is terrible. So many of the questions are about concepts not in the book or from different chapters, sometimes the website will mark me wrong when I’m just not, the mechanics aren’t good at all, it crashes constantly, and the hints, more often than not, seem more like back handed insults than hints, and even when they’re not insulting they still aren’t helpful. The website never tells me what I did wrong only that I am wrong and there is no learning curve. This site is terrible, the mechanics are hanky, it crashes, it glitches and will say right answers are wrong and constantly asks you to do things that the book never covers or didn’t in that chapter. Also, I know for a fact that I would have a far better homework and test grade if my assignments were packets or a website more compitently made than this. If you can avoid this site do, it’s not worth anyone’s time.
I am a chemistry student using sapling learning, and I had to just now stop in the middle of my homework to create an account on this website just so I could write a review on how absolutely garbage sapling learning is. I have never run into a worse UI, nor have I read questions written so poorly in my life. I cannot even begin to give constructive criticism on what this site needs; it is the worst learning tool I have ever used, and I have no idea why it is used anywhere. I would never recommend this site to anybody in a million years.
I am a chemistry student and I absolutely despise sapling learning. It is so unhelpful and the questions it asks are vague and confusing. I dislike this site so much that I stopped my assignment just to create this account and write a review for how much I hate this site. There is absolutely no room for mistakes, which there is a lot because of how specific sapling wants your responses to be. There is so much wrong with this site that I can’t even begin to describe how bad it is. I would never recommend this site to anyone.
I am a student in chemistry class currently using sapling, and this is the first website I’ve seen to review sapling from a consumer perspective. I hate using sapling for chemistry. There’s very little learning curve, it’s difficult to enter in chemical equations, and the homework questions often through in complex unrelated questions rather than building on concepts. Rather than teach the basics, the questions often seem to focus on strange exceptions as if to say to say to students, “see how much smarter than you we are”? Why not focus on the basics and build up? It’s a very poor system that when correcting me usually does not tell me WHY I was wrong, only that I am wrong.
