This class was tough.
I would recommend this course because if the proper amount of effort and time is applied, the course can be extremely rewarding. Being a prerequisite, this course provides a lot of general information that I believe will be very useful later on in a variety of business-related courses.
One highlight of this course is the textbook that is used. The course I took used "Financial Accounting 8th Edition, by Libby, Libby, and Short." The online version provided me with the ability to highlight, take notes, and watch guiding videos while doing certain homework problems. I learned a variety of fundamental concepts and methods used in financial accounting. Overall, I would say I drastically increased my ability to communicate in the business world.

Advice for students:
My main piece of advice would be to read the textbook, and do the homework problems. In my opinion, the only way to succeed in this course is by having a good enough understanding of the concepts in order to have the ability to apply them when answering questions. Study tips that helped me to succeed include rewriting my notes, and completing an abundance of practice problems.
