    This course is proving extremely difficult for me. I have never done bookkeeping without using a computer, and with the course focusing strictly on doing everything by paper is very difficult. I feel that it’s teaching antiquated principals – for example, bank reconciliations are very straightforward and easy to perform, I do them monthly for several different corporate bank accounts, yet I’m finding that I’m having to re-read through this section of the course multiple times. I think this particular course needs to be updated.

    The course was fine, but there’s no way to tell why the answers I got wrong at the prometric center were wrong. Without the correct answers I’m afraid that going forward I’ll continue to make mistakes in those areas that I did get wrong on the test.
