This course is for a school student, there is no practical exposure and its only a basic of standard costing. As per the description of the course, the content need to be of very high standard compared to what it is. Unnecessary, the number of slides have been increased in course by putting comic joke or pdf separate slide to download. This course is not at all for practical knowledge as even the practical problem considered is of a very basic level.
