TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING
Prof Brian is a genius! He managed to overhaul what is typically perceived as a drudging content to a fun and interesting ride! Thank you for that extra cherry on top, it made all the difference!
It is a great course for beginers like me to start to learn about accounting. The concepts are easy to understand, and the examples are very helpful for understanding. I like the virtual students btw.
It Is one complete Course. No need of a book at-least for the concepts, you may use one for more practice.
At Par with any classroom course at IIM's or similar Colleges.
I strongly recommend.
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.
