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.

Honestly, as a Scientist, I learned heaps... Until I did this accounting course I probably would have used these words interchangeably. Also, perhaps mostly because I need to make up another 35 characters to this submit review, I must say it was very refreshing to learn a completely novel subject to which has real world applications.

The courses are user friendly and the content is easy to understand. I especially liked the reference to the iconic Popeye character Wimpy's classic catch phrase. High quality learning in a sleek mobile interface. I love it.

A great refresher course. The interactive nature helps to facilitate better understanding of key concepts. Not intimidating either. Case study scenarios add realism to the practices.

I really like the step by step approach to explain these basic accounting concepts for beginners. It could be challenging to know in which account and whether on debit or credit side to register a transaction, but the course was again clear and easy to follow.

This platform is a good example of comprehensive practical study platform. Never felt this engaged in other online courses. I am learning concepts which i did not understood in my previous education. This will bring a positive change in the world if it is delivered for free of cost continuosly in underdeveloped and developing countries.

Excellent course. I did not know anything about accounting when I started and I'm happy to have gained some basic knowledge. I found some of the earlier lessons very hard and would have liked a few more exercises to practice, but in the end, I think I still understood and learned everything. And I was able to finish the final project without problems.
