by Lois T. on May 18, 2022
Mr.Evan made it very easy to understand basic Accounting Principles. He used a lot of formulas and showed the step-by-step process for calculations. Simple language was also used to deliver the information, so that anyone without prior knowledge and experience can grasp the concepts.
by Christopher G. on May 18, 2022
The class was very informative; I learn a lot from this class.
