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.

Overall, the course is an okay introduction, but I was disappointed with the level of guided content provided in resources. Basically, I ended up googling a lot of concepts and learning from other (free) platforms for this content, most of which explained the concepts in a better manner. I am happy to have completed the course, but since I paid for the program, I would have preferred to do less "self-directed discovery" to learn the concepts.
Specific examples of what I mean:
Equations could have been laid out more clearly within lectures, perhaps included in the glossary.
There were several key terms missing from the glossary; the glossary lacked consistency for what was included and what was not.
Often times new terms (or alternative names for concepts) were introduced only during tests and quizzes instead of during lectures and it was not always straightforward or logical what those terms implied.
Some of the quiz/text questions were very ambiguously worded (which did not seem to contribute to critical thinking, though that possibly was the intention).

I found that this course definitely did cover a lot of information and I like that the exercises came from real-life examples, however, I found that the lecturer went at a very fast pace despite this being a foundational course. In particular, this was my experience during week 3 and 4. I know that the beauty of online learning is the ability to pause and rewind the lectures but I think even with that some of the material was a little fast-paced.

Overall a good course but I think it is quite overloaded with information that is not necessairly practical for MBA students . Also a lot of the naunces would not stick after the course is over with. Perhaps, this would have been a good class for accounting majors. Most videos are merely reading through the slides with not much added insghts or examples. Wish this course was less crammed and more insightful.

It is an OK course, but for someone like me who had little background of finance still struggled in the class because I felt that many of the concept is no explained clearly. I understand that the professor tried to illustrate through examples but I felt that the example does not explain anything other than merely listed and repeated the numbers.

Regarding accounting, the course was not so easy for a beginner learner. Most example case questions were good, but I wish the instructor explicitly explained how to solve those questions. Also, I was disappointed that lots of questions in the discussion forums have not been answered by the instructor.
par Ben N•
Oversimplified. Most of the interesting topics have been avoided in this class and were only covered in the book which was optional.

Recommend the Introduction to Financial Accounting Course from UPenn, which is more informative and more engaging.
par Cedric D•
The content is clear, but the delivery is boring. I prefered the old fashion accounting module from Wharton.
par Fred S•
Lots of info, but not any practical assignments that can help build this knowledge into practical skill.
par Filip H•
Not consistent in terminology. That would not be a problem if the instructor pointed it out.
par Timur S•
Generally liked it, would like more practical material and financial statement composition
par Indrajit p•
The presenter was not impressive,same content shown in many way without any help.
par HIMANSHU V•
Balance sheets used have mistakes. Also he needs to explain things better.
par Kamilė S•
Really didnt like the teacher. The way of speaking etc is not helpful.
par Yussupova M N•
Not very informative and I didn't get a certificate on completion
par babak f•
I find accounting quite boring, so that's why I did not enjoy it.
