It is good to finally completed my first online course. I had a great learning experience especially considering my fear of accounting subjects. The teachings were easy to follow given the excellent visual effects and great teaching style. Thank you Luann, Coursera & Darden School of Business of the University of Virginia.

I joined the course to refresh the managerial accounting concepts, studied the subject quite long ago.

Really found it challenging and I like the fact otherwise it would be very boring for me.

the course instructor was very clear about all concepts and let the flow go smoothly.
