About the Course

This is an introductory course on financial and management accounting. The first part of this course will introduce the basic accounting principles and accounting terminology to understand how a company keeps control of financial events and provides information on how it is performing. These basic concepts will support the analysis of financial reports companies prepare. We will go through balance sheet, income statement, financial statement, learning how to read and analyze them. The course will also provide the basis of management accounting introducing some techniques (e.g. break- even analysis or NPV) to support managers in making short-term and long-term decisions, such as "Is it convenient to dispose a production machine and buy a new one?" or "How many products should the company sell in order to break-even?" The course will bring examples and case studies that will help students better understand the practical applications of the basic accounting principles and techniques. At the end of the course, students will be able to read, understand and analyze financial documents and to apply simple techniques to analyse costs and evaluate capital investment decisions....

This course is massively difficult for an introductory course. You will certainly learn a lot, such as job-order costing, FIFO, NPV and so-on. The "readings", which are essentially small case studies, are a significant jump in difficulty from the scenarios presented in the preceding lessons. The explanatory videos afterwards would be better served as lessons themselves, since it's frequently unclear about how to apply the logic learned in lessons to case studies which have extenuating circumstances not previously connected. I would also prefer more contextualization; I am often left understanding a situation whose usefulness I'm uncertain of.

That all said, the scope of the course is very broad. I am humbled by the amount of things I have learned to do and have gained a new-found respect for the profession. Where I previously learned about income statements, balance sheets and the other required documentation to provide to regulatory bodies, this course takes us through the underlying gears and levers that fill the numbers into the line items on these documents. I think there is room for improvement in how this course could be organized, and with the amount of content taught, I think it might be better if the required time were doubled.

Going to be honest this was a mixed learning experience. The quizzes and exam were different from what I was trying to learn. I couldn't go back into my notes to help me at all. But I might be the problem because I couldn't understand the teaching method at all.

The course has content which is not bad but not good. I didn't like the way things are explained on the boards. It's just my personal view you may like the course. I'm someone who likes to learn concepts in a fun manner and given accountancy is such a boring subject it becomes more boring if explained like the way explained in the course. I'm sorry if I hurt your feeling professor but this course needs a massive upgrade.

Watched the videos for the first week and tried to take the quiz. Two of the four questions in the quiz weren't covered in the material. I don't want to risk more of my time taking a course that seems like it wasn't designed properly. This was mentioned in the messages for the course, but nothing done to address the issue over several years.
