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.

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.
