Overall great course. Still unclear about some things and there is no way to clarify. That would make it better. But besides that this course is well done.

I followed the course and found the assessment quizzes very relevant. I however, had answers that were correct being marked as incorrect. There is noone to answer queries. I have been only directed to an automatic FAQ section. Where can someone talk to a Coursera person? There is no communication at all.

Course is fantastic - the final case study definiely requires more time than an hour. Also, It is very complicated,my answers were no where near and I do this for a living for the last 8 years. There shopuld be more guidance when it comes to the case study. The course is very good.

There were several errors throughout this course, for example one of the videos was 6 minutes long but there were only 2 minutes of content. Another is the case study as there were some errors on the excel file itself.

​There were videos that there was no verbage and there should have been. Also several times i had to go back to complete previous to get an play button for the next session.

If you are a numbers person - question #3 on final quiz will drive you insane. I haven't found anyone who has gotten the correct answer. It was an informative course.

A lot of information is covered but I think it would be ideal to have more practice with actual books like the case study. it was a lot to figure out.

A nice course to cover the basics. It just needs more practice sessions. At the end it provides one large practice case.

I could have used more hands-on practice. But the course is over-all great for a beginner Bookkeeper.

I wish there had been more time spent on where to put what transactions but otherwise, good course.

The course overall was good. The animated instructor did a good job at illustrating the situations and acting them out and providing examples. Some of the real life examples were not very good at illustrating the point they were trying to make; not easy to follow. I felt like I needed a lot more practice writing journal entries and the practice was not available. When it comes to the final case study, that was spot on for the learning we just reviewed. The only suggestion I have is to make the solution available after the certificate is issued as I really wanted to compare how well I wrote the journal entries compared to the test itself.

While I did pick up some useful tips for how to better handle my own company's inventory and assets, I was extremely frustrated with the final problem. They explain how to do everything in QuickBooks, but then give you some jumbled mess of an Excel workbook that makes no sense to someone who never worked as a non-QuickBooks bookkeeper. I had two years of accounting in college and I was still confused about the Excel mess. I get that you are supposed to understand the basics of accounting to use QuickBooks, however the Excel workbook doesn't quite match up to what is being taught.

Too many inaccuracies, inconsistencies and ambiguities. Examples from "experts" sometimes contain incorrect advice and information.

Example - in one of the assessment exams, where typed answers were required, the number formats required were $x,xxx.xx. EXCEPT for the last question, where it was changed to $x,xxx, and which I didn't notice.

My answer $3,800.00 - marked as incorrect, because it should have been $3,800

Why on earth should the format of the number be relevant?

By Scott M

The information is fairly useful but I found there to be several errors or inconsistencies in the answers including the formatting of the numbers entered. In other words, even though I entered the correct answer, it was still marked incorrect when I didn't enter the number as it was specifically required (entering .00 when there weren't to be any .00 in the answer or entering a "." when I should have entered a ",").

Wish instead of Excel we could use a Quickbooks training platform, Excel is so tedious having to go back and forth through the sheets. Also, there were so errors in the quizzes that marked the right answer wrong, and some glitches in the videos. ThIs course has to be reviewed for errors and clarity.
