I signed up for this thinking I'd get a refresher but soon realized the instructor, Brian Bushee, is a gifted teacher.

I found it specially interesting for non-US people who work at a multinational companies because Brian Bushee presents a great overview of the accounting practices in the United States.

Prof Brian Bushee has no doubt taken a lot of pains in preparing the high quality study materials.

As a novice to financial accounting, I was impressed with the way the Professor acknowledged difficult concepts and questions, in a way that had clearly been developed from teaching the course to classes over many years.

Definitely a useful course to help wrap your brain around the tough subject of financial accounting.

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn financial accounting, even if he knows nothing about the subject.

The professor uses virtual students who ask questions to keep the class going.

Professor Bushee has clearly invested a significant amount of time developing the course, and it shows from the first video to the last.
