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,

This course was definitely helpful in covering the basics of this course but would be much better if there are more different types of practice questions and more exposure to important small points.

I have liked the course very much because information is given in a simple understandable way. The course content is well structured. I have experience in accounting but I think that passing the course is useful for me because it makes me more flexible in awareness of which way bookkeeping and accounting are operated in the world.

The course content was well detailed and it was self explanatory too. The instructors were there to help every step of the way as we had a lot of webinar live sessions that made it very easy for us students to air our views. It was worth the time, money and experience.
