by Christina A. on April 11, 2024
Great Course!
by Ava M. on April 11, 2024
Very easy to follow along with the course information and apply it to test's, and milestones.
by Veonte B. on April 11, 2024
This course is effective at bringing someone up to speed on general accounting knowledge. At times, the Milestones will ask questions referencing information left out of the modules. The course can improve by providing more information in the modules.
by Frank M. on April 11, 2024
I like how you can build whatever program you want for the touchstone just as long as you can explain your application.
