I'm not an accounting student, so I was super intimidated by this class at first. My instructor recommended that I meet with a tutor, and they were so helpful! Don't wait to meet with a tutor in Tutor Match. They're lifesavers!

The live classroom sessions that my instructor did were really good, and sometimes when I'd get stuck on assignments, I'd watch key parts of the lectures over again. Don't feel bad if it doesn't click at first--we're students, so it should be all new!

I think these classes move a lot faster than I've ever had before, and I really had to dig in and create a study schedule for myself so I didn't leave things until the last minute. Life happens, you know?
