Thank you for the well-organized, self-paced learning environment. I've taken many online courses, including my education masters, and this is the best class and learning experience. I'm trying to decide between Accounting Fundamentals II or QuickBooks. I'm leaving education and did accounting 30 years ago and am looking for future employment. Thanks again, Charlene.
