Such a great course for accounting beginners! The professor is really great, he explained things clearly and not boring at all. I have no prior knowledge in this field and was a bit worried that I cannot follow, but the way Jeff approached make the content easy to understand. It exceeds my expectation. Recommend!

This was a great course and it was very easy the content was great. The instructor is awesome and the 5 star rating is not sufficient for the instructor there must be 20 stars so I can rate the instructor 20/20 stars. By the way this was a great experience. And thankyou providers.

An outstanding introduction to an often confusing subject. Many introductory materials out there are confusing and poorly written, but Prof. Jeff offers a thorough, practical and enjoyable presentation. Recommended!

I have done a similar course to Accounts in the past, however, I have never fully understood it. To continue, I was always looking for a course or program to help me understand Accounts. To conclude, this course did the job, I am so happy that I did this course. Thank you to edx and Professor Jeff for a fun, knowledgeable and amazing experience.
