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!

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.

The course has taken me from not knowing how to read a financial sheet to learning to actually create one, what a great leap. That means that I can now hold a company's account statement and know that it is all about and not just some gilberish meant to confuse non inducted.

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.

The learning model is to some extent addicting. Thumbs up smartly. Learning is all about fun, sometimes you want to get in touch to know more. Each course with real life practical examples and exercise, its a good concept.

Accounting has always been challenging to me. But today I have completed the most simplified accounting course. In my undergraduate I majored in Finance because Accounting was so tough to me. But from today I can now practice more and understand what I am doing!

From my perspective this really felt like Accounting for Dummies and I really enjoyed it! Very interactive and designed for easy understanding. I have to admit though I had to repeat some of the exercises to get a good grasp of the concepts.

This was by far the most interesting accounting course I have ever done. It is very informative. The engagement is outstanding. I have not done accounting ever since I was in high school. I have always found accounting to have difficult concepts to follow but this course guides you throughout. I struggled a bit at the beginning but started getting the hang of it

Terminology needs further explanation. Except that, it is challenging lesson for beginners. For sure I can see further development of this topic in case it is that important for the upcoming MBA.
