There were a lot of good example problems that were very beneficial to understanding the concepts, however some of the exam questions were difficult to go back and completely understand.

courses on managerial accounting fundamentals in my opinion are quite difficult to learn. The explanation given through the material or video is actually quite good, but there are still difficulties in understanding each material given. Calculations must also be calculated carefully so that there are no errors in generating information. This course is interesting to study for anyone.

I thought this is a credit certificate because I attended the training and was able to pass the nerve-wrecking examination and paid necessary course fee to earn that 13 hour training but to my dismay the certificate given says it is an online non-credit course which i cannot use in my application for promotion its clearly stated in the citation in the certificate. Can the coursera address this issue.

The instructor puts in completely new questions during the quizzes that are not on the practice quizzes. This makes it difficult to pass each module, and it should be an intermediate level course the way it is setup.
