Comparing smart.ly to Trump University and University of Arizona is a bit of a stretch - unlike either of those options, this one is free. Disclaimer: If you're hoping for a real degree, you'll want to look elsewhere. But if you're a MOOCs enthusiast that loves learning new things in their spare time, then feel free to peruse the course.

Thank you for the opportunity. Awesome lesson and nice visualisation. I have been dump about accounting. But after joining this course I understand that accounting is only a matter of number positioning and simple calculations. Glad joining it. Thank you.

One of the most phenomenal methods to teach that I have seen in the recent past. I would highly recommend to anyone with a busy schedule but a desire to learn.

Great lessons and good content about the accounting fundamentals. the only downside is that the free form fields are not so mobile friendly and make answering some questions frustrating.

Simple life examples to test the knowledge learned. Easily relatable so people who have little to zero knowledge about the subject. Allow learner to understand the flow of the concept and usage without all the jargons.

I took internal accounting exams while at GE, so it may be that I have retained more of that information then I thought; nonetheless, I feel like the content is taught here very clearly and I feel much more confident that I could complete a similar task in a professional environment.

The content was excellent, but the input and selection of answers is not the greatest. Sometimes, it's too small and I've selected the wrong answer because they're too close together. On some of the pages with multiple areas to fill in answers, the sheets wouldn't be visible, and I had to reload pages and re-answer questions I'd already answered in order to proceed.

A really good introduction to accounting, especially with the repetitive elements, that you also clearly know the subject and terms after taking this course!

I have always been a hands on person. Tell me what I can spend and I will stay within the limits. I never really gave second thought about how that money was accounted for. Thanks for the new found understanding!

I am very math challenged. My business experience is in operations and process management so I have avoided accounting. I really enjoy that even though I have already passed the course I can go back and retake it.

I've never taken accounting before, but this made a subject I've avoided like the plague approachable and useful for everyday life! The User Interface remains quirky and charming enough to keep me invested, and I feel confident that I'm getting the content I need to succeed

I've found the content to be of high quality and the pace proposed by Smartly just challenging enough. The Smartcases were a good tool to pin down the newly acquired information.

This course is a friendly and fun way to learn accounting, which can be rather dry and boring. It's a great way for people who want a better grasp of financial statements and balance sheets and learn how they are built up.

This is maybe the ideal application of the Smartly platform. I never had been able to learn accounting in tens of hours of class time, and this method of teaching it had me stone-cold perfect on that same material within 90 minutes. Brilliant!

FAKE COURSE. They're 100% un-accredited. Worse than Trump University and University of Arizona. None of the people developing the course have even received MBAs. Employers look at this unaccredited course and immediately reject people who don't realize that it's a fake course.

Found this extremely easy to follow along, concepts explained in a clear and concise manner and the exercises really drive the key points home. Very effective in maximizing time vs education value!
