This course was extremely helpful in providing a comprehensive overview of introductory accounting without making you feel intimidated or lost (especially if you do not have the strongest quantitative background). I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning more about accounting or who wants to learn a new, valuable skill!

An amazing course really. With no background in accounting whatsoever, I am far better off now with my startup and investing plans that I have for future. I can manage accounting for my startup and effectively read financial statements before investing. Thanks to Professor Luann and all the mentors that did a fantastic job putting the content together!

The content of this course is comprehensive, clear and well-structured; therefore, I would definitely recommend it to my colleagues.
I would rate the performance of Professor Luann J. Lynch as excellent; she has definitely made me quite easy, a first approach to accounting.
Thanks to the University of Virginia and congratulations on this course.

The course was well set and well taught. However, in the quiz section it'd be so helpful if you provided a short video on how to solve the questions. That would be far more appreciated than asking us to watch a couple of videos again. Conceptually, this would be much better.
Except for that - I enjoyed the course. Thanks for the same.

For beginners to Accounting like myself, this course introduced the rules of Accounting, journal entries and their onward flow to the 3 important financial statements in a very easy-to-understand manner. The Garden Spot example, esp. the year 2 transaction entries, was very useful in understanding the rules of Financial Accounting.

After 14 years of reading financial statments ifor my practice I decided I wanted to better understand where the numbers come from and what they mean. This course was a great boon to both my knowledge base and my confidence. Dr. Lynch was a fantastic teacher and they weekly assignments were just right is length and depth.

The course is a very good overview of Financial accounting. The adjusting journal entries section was very helpful and worth reviewing. Would have liked a little more practice on the statement of cashflows, specifically classifying changes to accounts in the indirect method. But overall a great intro to financial accounting.

This is the best Accounting course I have ever taken. Do not hesitate to enroll. You will learn everything you need about financial accounting, financial statement analysis, a little bit of financial statement reporting and analysis. Prof. Lynch is really amazing in her teaching approach. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Stellar course! Gives a profound crash course to the world of accounting by covering the fundamentals of the subject. One learns about financial statements (balance sheets, income statements, statements of cash flows, and the annual report) and assets, liabilities, and owners' equity. Highly recommend it!

I like the way this professor teaching. It’s very interesting, useful, and easy to understand. I am a fan of her！ I am going to take another class from her- managerial accounting. Hope she has more class beside these two. I will probably to another search again after I finish the other class from her.

Loved this course. Great professor. I would suggest adding more practice in creating the Statement of Cash Flows. That is the only part I really struggled with and didn't feel like I had enough practice before taking the quiz.
I would love to soo more from this professor about accounting principles!

This is a wonderful course for all those people who are learning Accounting for the first time. Prof. Luann ensures that her students are kept engrossed throughout the course, despite Accounting being a rather monotonous task. She does so by subtly adding humour from time to time in her lectures.

This is a great course designed by Luann Lynch and the University of Virginia. The explainations given are clear and crisp, and I wish I could get more practice assignments. The only thing I would like to say that Week 3 and 4 are a little heavy, so DONT GIVE UP!! it will come to you :)

I was adventuring across the internet to learn accounting. Watching videos and reading articles improved my knowledge but not my overall understanding about accounting. Until i found this course which contributed a lot to fill the gap of my understanding of fundamentals of accounting.

A very well structured and paced course. The concept of keeping everything in a single RE account and then describing the revenue/expense in there is different to how I'm familiar with working, but once that adjustment is made it all really works out well. Thankyou very much indeed.

Certainly a great refresher for reporting and fundamentals. Sometimes we get comfortable with software that is designed to generate the info we need and it was nice to look over a company sample and get back to the basics of JE's, reports, and more. Would recommend to all levels.

Great intro to Accounting if you know nothing to begin with. Very step by step. Accounting is not an easy topic, but the professor does a great job of explaining things in a way that is easy to understand. Glad I took this course even if I don't pursue a career in Accounting.
