A very good way to refresh your accountancy training if you've been away from work. Very well structured and covered a wide range of topics. Also made me think about my interpretation of the requirements. Happy to have undertaken the course.

I found the content very relevant and in line with the syllabus, tutor always helpful and when i found it hard to understand certain concepts, they always break them down for you to understand. The examples used were very helpful and practical in the career world. i'm sitting for my exam and continuing my studies with this service provider.

Great course, very clear and easy to understand. Interactive modules within the course helped in practising applying the knowledge gained, tutor responded to questions fairly quickly and there was plenty of practice questions, I think there are over 300 practice questions in the entire course! So I didn't have to pay for any mock papers. I passed my paper scoring 82% using only what I learned from this course. A massive thank you to the team!

Freaking amazing course! I found the exercises really helpful. Debits and credits always stumped me before, but the explanations were so clear that now I feel I have a really good understanding of them. Also, thank you so much for offering this as a free course. I am so grateful that you made this accessible for everyone.

I am very delighted to complete this foundation paper by using edx and ACCA-x. It was really helpful. I am feeling confident for my exam on March 5 2019. Although it was really challenging way of studying, but I always enjoy studying ACCA with edx. Thank you the way you helped me, Now I am looking forward and thinking ahead to the next step.

I am very grateful I was able to take the course and found it very helpful in my bookkeeping dream job. Though it's difficult to remember the lessons all at once, I am going to restudy it over and over again until I will fully understand everything in the lessons. Thank you once again.

I enjoyed the course so much. All those amazing activities were so helpful and they made understanding easy. Though I'm yet to attempt my paper so I can't really say it covered everything that is required for the paper as I've compared it with BPP's notes and I felt there are several important things that are missing from the course. I'll attempt and post if there's anything need to be added. I thank all the staff for such a great free course. Wish me luck <3

I really enjoyed this course. It was made very professionally and with great attention to details. I wouldn't expect a free course to be this good! I found it quite difficult, but I guess it's because the content itself is difficult to grasp at first. I did need some additional videos online to help me understand some of the concepts. Overall, highly recommended and thanks for putting this coure online and making it available for everyone.

I believe that double entry could have been given over better. A lot of the explanation of double entry was only given in the last section and I believe that had I learned that when I was first introduced to double entry it could have gone much easier. But other then that it was very good and I got a good mark in the exam. So thank you very much and regards,
