Amazing tool for reviewing homework

Overall, I think CourseHero is a good study tool. It is easy to navigate around and get assistance with material on different topics.

Pros

There are a lot of different study features which makes it great for doing homework and revision. You can get help with homework on topics that have little material from tutors. You can get multiple answers which adds perspective to your problem.

Cons

I often have to wait a lot before getting a tutor which can be annoying especially when there is a deadline.

Course Hero honest review

I worked as a tutor in Course hero for quite some time, and not a very good experience is the least to say. Many times have I submitted correct answers without being rewarded, and I have seen many colleagues being removed and had the balance they had in their account taken away and their original work. Overall, I may say that Course Hero treats students well, but not tutors.

Pros

I like it When you take a course; you can access documents of people who have taken the same class which can be of crucial help to you. I like how easy it is to navigate the platform. Course hero pays tutors well.

Cons

I don't like how easy it is to plagiarise via course hero. I don't particularly appreciate how tutors and experts who are not experts in the field give random answers to your inquiries and questions. I don't like how pricey the premium membership is.

CourseHero

CourseHero was useful finding solutions to exam prep questions,

Pros

It was very helpful with course and exam notes. There was a variety of content that was useful. Notes and index were in order. Science and social studies subjects available. Proficient answers and educated people to help solve issues and problems with a variety of subjects and courses.

Cons

Sometimes information was repetitive or missing. Some items were unavailable and you could only get a few answers at a time

My experience with Course Hero

I would not use it again because when I would pay to view a document it was blank. I felt like it was a scam.

Pros

That there are plenty of search options.

Cons

That the information is not updated or verified as correct or incorrect. I did not fins it beneficial for my studying instead it made me double guess my knowledge.

Reasons for switching to Course Hero

Because it is more accurate.
