The best accounting material I have ever seen! I have struggled to understand accounting basics since college, and I ended up dropping the class. This course explains concepts to me in the most entertaining and easy to understand way possible. Thank you!

This is really helpful as I have zero experience in creating or even understanding most of the books. I would have preferred more practice though as I was a little lost.

Great! Simple and easy way to explain accounting concepts. I had an accounting course in university that was way more confusing. This was a not only a refresh but a clarification

By far the easiest way to understand accounting. Simple, extremely practical but you learn so much from this course. I always battled with the debits and the credits; but this course broke it down, section by section. Thank you!

The content was presented in an extremely simple way, so that it's easy to understand and remember, and also the cases are of help in remembering the principles.

It is easy to understand, easy to follow, you can go back and it is really useful. I was never an accountant person, numbers scare me, but here with all the illustrations and examples it is not the rocket science anymore.

A great introduction to accounting. The whole debit/credit thing is really non-intuitive, but this course helped greatly in getting my head around all the various accounting tools and methodologies.

Very nicely and claerly presented although it was more difficult to understand due to the dual principle and due to pretty "easy-to-confuse" terms related to debit/credit.

This should be the gold standard for teaching concepts. With this format,I could not afford to concentrate as there were lots of practice exercises along the way.Well organized content provided in highly visual bite size format.Great job!

I like this! It’s a challenge and not user-friendly on my phone, so it’s hard to navigate through several ledgers, but that’s on my for not having access to a computer.

An insightful app which is both flexible yet powerful at the same time. Definitely worth sharing with friends and peers. In an era of commercializing education, Smartly is rewriting the history by truly valuing the education - a divine act.

Very good course - due to the 2 reasons: 1) It engages you into learning from the very beginning. 2) You get the "active" knowledge - which means you get the tools you're capable of applying at practice (rather then just being aware of) by the end of the course.

Very good for learning and very fun to learn. Great courses. I like to carry on. This cleared up many things that i have never made immediate sense to me on balance sheets and income statements. Highly recomend this to others. I enjoyed the challenge of getting to grips with this module. Ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen. So kann man sein Wissen schnell und einfach wieder Auffrischen.
