Eye opening information, as simple as basic accounting can be. I learnt how to correctly apply the terms credit and debit in accounting; I also particularly enjoyed the concept of using income statements in determining if an entity is operating at a profit or loss. Thank you smartly!

Addictive learning! I am loving how each lesson clearly finds ways to make the information clear! You can also download the app on your phone and learn on the go,then later pick up the rest of your learning on your laptop at home.

Really enjoyed the course structure. Love the examples and the case at the end. This puts the learned theory to practice and reinforces the accounting terminology that was completely new to me.

I'm only a bit into chapter 2 "The Practice of Accounting" and I love it. Never understood the details behind a balance sheet but the building-block approach of these sessions make it consumable and easy to retain.
