TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING
The professor made lectures fun and easier to digest, and the hands-on case studies are good practice to cement the lessons taught. Will definitely recommend to people who want to learn accounting!
It is clear to see the amount of work Prof. Brain Bushee has put into making this course fun. Thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience with the e-students that asked questions in the lectures! :)
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.
