I have never taken accounting, so I have nothing to compare content to. I do know a few of the links don't work.... so dig there. Instructor: It's a self paced, self taught course. They do give you an instructor if you have questions. I emailed the instructor the first day of class with a question... then again 1 week after I heard nothing in response, then a week after that again.. finished the course 8 weeks later without having heard back even one time.

Very poor. There are blatant errors in the course materials. Inappropriate media mixed in such as a discussion on notes in the section on payroll.

This course can be useful for those who have a limited amount of time and money to complete a basic accounting course, but there are numerous errors in the course material and the phrasing/wording of test questions is poor - improper use of grammar, etc. making it difficult for the student to understand what is being asked. Overall not recommended.

I have taken accounting courses in traditional classroom setting, so I kind of knew what to expect from an introductory accounting course. I was extremely pleased with the content in the course. It covers everything that you would find in a traditional college course.

Great course. Online courses are what you make of them but if you read the material and take notes you can really learn a lot.

All you need before taking this course is basic math skills. They teach you the fundamentals of accounting and define every important term. The "games and activities" are awesome in solidifying the new vocabulary.
