    Rewarding course

    A very useful course for someone without any or a little prior knowledge about accounting. All things considered, I feel this was an immensely rewarding and intellectually challenging course. Will definitely recommend it to people who want to learn Bookkeeping!

    Nicely paced

    It was slow enough for any beginner to grasp the main concepts and actually learn at the end. The price also makes one just want to give it a try.
