    I rushed it, but passed.

    I’ve studied a fair amount of accountancy & bookkeeping. The lessons are pretty engaging.
    Though, I cut to exams early.
    I passed.
    The exams did test my understanding & knowledge.
    Study465 courses are pretty good. They seem relevant to the job market too.
