TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING
The Prof, Mr Bushee is amazing and made the whole course pretty interesting. Without him this course wouldn't have the same lustre. The course gives good knowledge accompanied with decent practice.
A very useful course for someone without any or a little prior knowledge about financial accounting. Full of examples and math works. A helpful guide to learn the A B C of basic financial accounting.
So many useful things to learn. The course is well organized. The instructor is so funny, using many interesting ways to get learners involved and make it not boring at all. I love him so much!!!
Learned a lot from Prof. Brian Bushee class. Is my second class on Financial Accounting from a different school. With his explanation and examples the numbers make sense now. Thanks for the class
