This course was easy to understand and very informative. It has given me a full understanding of the accounting world. On the other hand, there should be more engagement between the Lecturer and the students both on the LMS and Live Sessions to improve the student learning experience.

You need to re-package this course.
Good course to learn Accounting!
Though a lot of information was shared, but all the video's are highly consumed with vital information. More hand-one mentoring will be a great idea

It is not an easy course. Take time to read and analyze information. Understand questions asked always.
