Great set of courses for a beginner in the accounting field. Informative and well taught. Thanks to Kevin Jackson for making potentially complicated subject matter simple and easy to relate to.
Subject and content was good and very easy to understand. Videos given was a brilliant ideas to explain more about the topic. I also love how Coursera give me the certificate of completion.

I would rate 4.5 for this course. -0.5 is for below CONS about the course:
PROS: This was great follow up course after the first course "Understanding Financial Statements: Company Position". Course was concise and easy to understand for folks like me who want to understand accounting and financial statements but do not want to get to specialize in it. Weekly graded quizzes with 20 questions had a good mix of all the concepts discussed during the week. CONS: Discussion forums seem to be quiet and not engaging. I think unless the course staff plays a very active role, we will not see much learning from the discussion forums. I have heartburn with Peer Graded Assignments. This is a bad choice of evaluation on Coursera. My fellow students who are learning along with me might not be the right choice to review the assignments. Feedback can be none, or vague, or judgmental, or might even lack the knowledge to provide the feedback since we are all still learning. Having to wait for someone to grade our assignment and also wait very long to grade other students assignments is not a good use of time. We should not be wasting our time posting links to our assignment in the discussion forum. Discussion forms are getting spammed with links to assignments and the students requesting someone to pick their assignment for grading. Week 4 discussion forum and General Discussion forums are spammed and are a mess because of this activity. For the final peer graded assignment, instructions could have been better.
One additional video from professor which demonstrates analysis using the income statment would have been great for learning.

Regarding praise, know that I usually praise when I really like the result: and believe me, these classes were very good. I have been a student of MOOC Coursera for a long time. Whenever I can I evaluate the courses with immense sincerity. You can see the great explanation and the care you took with the explanations and reviews. And that can only mean one thing: you need to improve this course even more, with more content for studies and inclusion of articles and indication of technical books, this is the suggestion.

A lazy reviewer gave me the score of 0 and left me this comment: "I am not able to give any score, I tried very hard to understand the matter but it was difficult for me. I have to score it just for me to check the other student's work. Please don't consider my scoring here." I studied hard and received this poor evauation. I screamed for help many times but no one replied to my request. The quality of the course is superb and my experience is completely ruined by a shitty score which does not reflect my work.
