  1. Excellent!


    Having been interested in a career in bookkeeping for some time, I was thrilled to find this affordable course and start learning about Sage 50 Accounting. This is a vital piece of software to understand if you have any hopes of becoming a bookkeeper, and through this course I have learnt how to handle a huge range of responsibilities. I now have the confidence and skills I need to get started in an exciting new career, all thanks to this course.

  2. 5

    This course is one of a kind! For a brilliantly reasonable price, I have learnt all sorts of useful, new skills with Sage 50 Accounting. Everything from invoices and products to dealing with the bank and processing sales orders was covered, and I could choose to learn from my Windows computer to my laptop. If it was a sunny day outside, I’d take my laptop into the garden or to a café and learn from there – you don’t get the same freedom at a college!

  3. Waste of Time


    After a week of messing around with this so called course i have given up – its nothing but a cheap attempt to sell software . Do not waste your time. Its not the course content – i thinks Sage is a great program – but the hassle of trying to get the course up and running – such a waste of time- go elsewhere.
