Very easy to understand and follow along!
Not too hard not too easy. Take notes and you'll be fine.
While this course was extremely challenging, I most certainly learned more about accounting than I did in my course at Capella University. It would be nice if there was an explanation of wrong answers like in other courses.

The class can be easily accomplished if you take your time to study the material provided. It may difficult for someone with no experience in accounting. I completed this class in just under 4 weeks but take other classes and only committed about 3hrs/wk to this course.
Well constructed, clear, uncomplicated
I enjoyed this course. At times it was confusing and still I am trying to sort out some of the information. I do feel I have been given a great start and foundation for this subject.
Great, easy-to-follow course. Straight forward expectations on what we needed to learn for milestones. The modules organized information very well. Thank you!
It is a bit challenging, but I love it! recommended!
This course is really boring, I really recommend watching the videos, I assume that it could be taken in about a week or less. Please erase the video introduction of Matt, that 20 second introduction multiplied by the 40 or 60 times you must watch it makes it a considerable amount. There are several things that are constantly repeated along the course, I did learn something, and It could be useful... but its too easy.
Very dense course material, but easy to understand. Took longer to complete than expected.
First class I took on here and it was not to bad but wish things could have been in more detail. Professor was just pulling numbers out of no where and I didn't know where they came from or how he got them.
The course tutorials were easy to follow and helped me get a firm grasp on accounting.
Good - fairly easy to follow. I would have like to have clarification of incorrect answers.
very interactive and simple to study course, I loved everything from the way the course is arranged to how the testing system works. it was a lot of information, but if you put a couple of hours aside every day, I would be very easy to knock out this class in a week
More details could be added in some subjects.
