"This program is extremely outdated. If I had know that most of the activities involved manually drawing out the ledgers and journals, I would not have bought this program. Knowing how to format and align accounting journals should no longer be a part of any bookkeeping course, as no one does this manually any more. Besides that, the information I received was a good basis for learning bookkeeping."

"Please do not waste your money on this so-called school. It is not a real degree and employers will laugh at it. Please go to a community college or state university. PF does not give you textbooks, just online "study guides" written at about an eighth-grade level. What kind of school allows students to "preview" the exams before they take them? All you have to do is look up the answers then log in and click them on the test. You also get two chances to take exams. It's ridiculous. Instructors are rude and unhelpful. Their favorite line is "call Student care". Speaking of student care, the reps are clueless and unable to answer simple questions. This is a business and you are buying a worthless piece of paper. A degree costs about $4000 total so if you are paying $50 a month it will take you EIGHT YEARS to pay it off. Don't do it!"
