## Reviews

### TOP REVIEWS FROM MINDWARE: CRITICAL THINKING FOR THE INFORMATION AGE

• Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:

• The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
• The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
