来自ACCOUNTING ANALYSIS I: THE ROLE OF ACCOUNTING AS AN INFORMATION SYSTEM的热门评论
The pace of the course was easy to follow and the overall content was very well explained. The questions were challenging and made the learning experience fulfilling.
This is a very good course and an eye opener to all updated IFRS. Keep the good work Cousera and I will continue learning.
Highly recommend! A very intensive course that will provide you with lots of systemized knowledge on basics of accounting.
Some questions were direct but some questions were hard and required more in depth hold in terms of understanding.
