TOP REVIEWS FROM MORE INTRODUCTION TO FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING
Best course available on Financial Accounting. Coming from an Engineering background, this course helped me to understand how to read financial statements. Thanks a ton!! Professor !!!
Good stuff - well presented. I probably could start over again to reinforce what I learned. I do wish there were some updates to reflect changes in accounting rules.
This is my first course in Coursera !!! I liked it soo much because our teacher is the most friendly and the assignments are too good !!! I successfully completed it!!!!
Professor Bushee is fantastic!! Best accounting professor I've ever had, aside from a similar professor at UCLA (David Ravetch) who was able to bring humor to accounting in the same way.
