Cost Accounting

Learning accounting is like learning a language. If you take the grammar route to learn a language, you know how boring it would get. Instead, if you learn to speak a language, it would be great fun. The same thing goes for accounting. If we learn accounting in the context of business, you would master accounting concepts without realising it.

Moreover, corporates and businesses have grown rapidly which throws its own challenges. Competition also steps in with aggressive pricing. Understanding cost then becomes really important. This product makes the concept very simple, facilitates learning in a step-by-step manner, and importantly, facilitates this learning in the context of day-to-day business discussions, making it very relevant and simple.
