These fundamentals, neatly packed, will go a long way. Learning on the go, on my phone is a plus. Just a few lessons that did not display well on my phone and I am happy to share with the Smart.ly developers so that they can fix that.

I love to learn everything from scratch in another language. Very clear and small lessons. The final steps through all learned facts are great. Also using the app is comfortable so you can invest your commuting time more efficient in new lessons. I Love it:)

A great overview of accounting practices and standards, delivered in a very interactive and involving way. The lessons are bite size, the content is very clear, with multiple repetitions and reviews to improve learning.

Thank you for the opportunity. Awesome lesson and nice visualisation. I have been dump about accounting. But after joining this course I understand that accounting is only a matter of number positioning and simple calculations. Glad joining it. Thank you.

Great lessons and good content about the accounting fundamentals. the only downside is that the free form fields are not so mobile friendly and make answering some questions frustrating.

Simple life examples to test the knowledge learned. Easily relatable so people who have little to zero knowledge about the subject. Allow learner to understand the flow of the concept and usage without all the jargons.

I took internal accounting exams while at GE, so it may be that I have retained more of that information then I thought; nonetheless, I feel like the content is taught here very clearly and I feel much more confident that I could complete a similar task in a professional environment.

The content was excellent, but the input and selection of answers is not the greatest. Sometimes, it's too small and I've selected the wrong answer because they're too close together. On some of the pages with multiple areas to fill in answers, the sheets wouldn't be visible, and I had to reload pages and re-answer questions I'd already answered in order to proceed.

I have always been a hands on person. Tell me what I can spend and I will stay within the limits. I never really gave second thought about how that money was accounted for. Thanks for the new found understanding!

I am very math challenged. My business experience is in operations and process management so I have avoided accounting. I really enjoy that even though I have already passed the course I can go back and retake it.
