    I like the course. This course is beneficial for the beginner like me. Every step was clearly to understand. I am satisfied with the course.

    Overall the course was excellent but there were some instances where the lecturer paused during the lessons which left a little lag in between at times. Other than that it was an excellent introduction to bookkeeping.

    I’m okay with my daily accounting and financial affairs, even then I thought taking an online course would increase my confidence with the software. Rich content but didn’t face any problem to understand.

  9. Phillip K. Stevens

    5

    It was pretty much a refresher of what I had already done in high school some years ago; therefore, it was good to revisit the concept and allow it to sink in deeper.

  10. Donald P. Crothers

    The video lessons are very impressive, easy to understand every topic.

  11. Xero Accounting and Bookkeeping Training

    4

    The trainer was patient, easy to follow and gave clear instructions throughout. At times I found some of the mistakes a bit frustrating but i think it was more because I had a basic knowledge of Xero as I currently use some of the systems to process invoices and payments already but it could be useful for new people to clearly show how to navigate the system when mistakes happen (as they do for all of us).
    The main criticism I have for the course is that some titles and functions have updated since this training so could be confusing for those whom aren’t already using the Xero System.
    Thank you to the instructor for the training.
