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.

Presented in an interesting form. I took me a while to finally adjust to dr and cr placements. My time was definitely well spent going through the module and the exercises. I would definitely recommend this for people seeking easy ways to understand accounting basics. Moving on!

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.

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!

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.

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.
