I know it's not glamorous or anything, but it's super important to make sure you create a schedule for yourself. Sure, your project submissions don't have deadlines, but it's way too much work to try to cram in at the end of the quarter.
I was getting lost in the course and felt kind of overwhelmed, but it helped to work with a tutor. The Live Help ones are available all the time for accounting help, and they really know their stuff!
I had to watch most of the lectures as recordings, but they were still super helpful that way because my professor gave examples that weren't in the modules and helped explain what I needed to do in assignments. I like being able to start, stop, and watch multiple times if I need to.
FAQs are my go-to for finding resources in the library that can help me. I don't need it as much anymore now that I have a handle on APA, but it has useful information even for special topics in accounting.
