The instructor is very enthusiastic about his material and is able to explain things very well. His classes seem to cover the main notions around the topic and the general technical quality of this course cannot be criticised. The questionnaires at the end of each topic are really useful for testing our knowledge.

Very good course. The instructor explains all the topics in details and the sections about debit and credits are great because he explains how to apply them very well. The practical examples on how to create financial statements are super helpful too. A strongly recommended course.
