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.

I took two semesters of accounting in the university 15 years ago. Accounting 101 was so confusing and I could find little meaning. But this course has shown me something different!

From college, to youtube, I can say that this is the easiest way to learn I've found in education. It lets you makes mistakes but still gives you an easy and simple explanation of why.

Probaby the easiest and most straightforward and shortest description of how journal and t accounts create general ledger and financial statements. Otherwise very basic and not really MBA level.

I wish I had experienced this course earlier. I never thought learning Accounting could be so fun and entertaining!! It feels more like playing a game, but you actually learn better than cramming books.

I love the content of this essential module. Even though it would have been less orthodox, I personally would have preferred a bottom-up approach for accounts, starting from the journal to gen ledger, instead of starting from balance sheet.

even free stuff these days are of better use of your time. I am an accounting expert and this stuff is good for secondary school accounting. Seriously, this does not even compare to even fundamentals of accounting at university level. Really a joke seriously.

Having studied an accounting module during my 3rd year at university, I remember how poorly taught the course was, and how many students found it difficult as a result. If only we'd been taught using this! The interactive method of teaching combined with simple, clear and well-structured explanations made the basics of accounting so easy and logical to understand!
