It Was fun going through every lesson.it is very educative and easy to understand. I look forward to the remaining modules. It is really learning made easy if in depth knowledge on accounting learned in a very short period. I will definitely recommend this program to friends and colleagues. My goal now is to complete the remaining modules so that I get a chance to do the full MBA programme on smartly. Thank you team smartly for this wonderful experience.

A bit difficult but decent content. The questions around which accounts and how to credit/debit, etc. are tough to follow until you get into the flow.

I love these lessons. only the system's imperfection makes me nervous during the session. I did lessons on my android phone and during tasks, it jumped over my screen that I could not enter numbers. otherwise great!

I am really enjoying these lessons. As someone who has used TeamTreeHouse, Udacity, and other code tutorial esque sites, this, to me, is the most intuitive interface and platform for learning I've ever seen. It is truly a pleasure learning.

I'll be honest. This course was hard to understand. Debit and credit part was super confusing and there was lack of practice part. It is either that, or that the other course has raised the level of expectation.

Starting from zero knowledge in accounting the course takes you throughout basic concepts that allow you to understand how the journal, the general ledger, the income statement and the balance sheet are built. With some useful exercises to practices and reinforce the basic knowledge the course allows you to mechanize the basic rules.

I like the storytelling and the interactive approach, It's a really cool way to learn and you can retake the lessons, that's pretty useful. Some concepts I already know from my college classes are so well explained and in a concise way.

My BA Marketing-Accounting for Managers module done in a day. I am very pleased what about the course content, the interface and interaction which makes it possible to learn and test as you go along without the pain of stretching my brain for short term and long term memory recall. Excellent approach, This what I wanted and could not get at London South Bank University as an option. I am very grateful for this path way to my MBA.

Great introductory accounting course. The course covers most of the important aspects that a manager needs to know. It got me off guard as I didn’t remember all my accounting learnings but the course explains very well so a student, who took accounting before, can easily recall terminology and procedures. Also, the practice exercises are well put and easy to understand. This course reminded me of my hands-on accounting and in-class projects where I had to actually do the work in-depth analysis of business cases. In this course, however, I had to figure out things by myself which is even better as we become more skillful at remembering learnings and applying them to real case scenarios.

I have no words to praise. Everything over here is beyond the expectations. The combination of concepts and examples makes it quite easy to understand different topics.

Great course! I really enjoyed the interactive aspect of the lessons. Also easy references helped me understand the concept. I wish we learned a little more about expense vs revenue towards the beginning of the lesson but I figured it out throughout the lesson.
