I learned so much from this course. I used it as a refresher and I'm so glad I did. Some rules have changed since I initially studied accounting. Thanks.
This is a very good course and an eye opener to all updated IFRS. Keep the good work Cousera and I will continue learning.
Highly recommend! A very intensive course that will provide you with lots of systemized knowledge on basics of accounting.
The course was very supportive and would help to my career path. Special thanks to course instructor Sir John Hepp.
Thank you Sir! A lot of great stuff that you have passed on to us. Thank you so much for your time and great work.
This is a bite size learning course. The case study will really test you on how did you understand the subject.
I really like this course. It is approachable to people who have no accounting knowledge and is very structure.
Great Course! I definitely learned to look at financial statements differently with this course.
