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.

Recommend the Introduction to Financial Accounting Course from UPenn, which is more informative and more engaging.

The content is clear, but the delivery is boring. I prefered the old fashion accounting module from Wharton.

Lots of info, but not any practical assignments that can help build this knowledge into practical skill.

Not consistent in terminology. That would not be a problem if the instructor pointed it out.

Some concepts are poorly explained. I had to use external materials to supplement my learning, even though I have extensive experience in finance. I had a very bad experience learning about LIFO and FIFO principals. The professor didn't really go into the logic of calculating both methods or anything really behind the methods. In addition, it was really hard to understand the professor. I am a foreigner myself and I understand the language struggle. But I expect the professor teaching the course to pronounce the terms correctly. It added a challenge to comprehend already poorly explained material. The syllabus was great though. With external research and figuring out formulas on my own (due to lack of clear explanation), I was able to learn some useful materials.

I did't enjoy this course, although I did well in passing it. The professor needs to improve his English skills in pronunciation and the use of the articles. On top of that, he speaks too quickly. Sometimes the texts under the video loses its correspondence. Overall this course is offered in way that it makes it difficult to grasp easy ideas.

Not too much value for money (at 38 pounds per month), given the very basic level of the learning material / courses the specialisation has on offer (even though it's being advertised as an intermediate level one).

The content is pretty good. However, it is really difficult to understand the instructor because of his accent. I need to review the transcript all the time.

The question should be more calculation based and little bit more interactive. Students should be aided to dig dipper.

in my opinion this is not financial accounting, it is just basics or fundamental of accounting
