Though I have been through Intro Accounting some 3 or 4 times through different classes and seminars, I still found myself learning from this detailed and straight forward presentation of information.

The modules were extremely informative and nothing less to say, Oktay sir's presentations were very easy to understand even for a person like me who has no prior knowledge about Financial Accounting.

The course offered basic accounting training that was understandable and easy to remember. I would definitely recommend to others and would continue with other courses.

I feel more comfortable with accounting concepts now. It was painful and tedious at points, especially with LIFO/FIFO, but it's accounting, that's what I expected.

I feel like I learned a significant amount, but the videos did not always help that much with the practice quizzes. I kind of had to guess and check my feedback.

Could use a bit more explanation of the formulas and methods for deriving some of the balance sheet and income statement items, but overall very good overview.

Muy buen curso, aunque sentí que falto profundizar un poco en los ejercicios ya que en los quices y/o parciales faltaba información para poderlos completar

I liked the course. There are some elements of FIFO and LIFO that I worked through, but I'm still fuzzy on. I look forward to the live sessions.

If there were interactive workbooks, that would solidify understanding and give practical application to the content learned in the module.

It was well covered and was really in depth. the only thing can be changed is case studies should not be too brief.
