Hi Professor Viljoen

I was a student in your Semester 1 – 2013 class and wanted to thank you so much for making Accounting easy and simple for me to understand. After 4 failed attempts, I was finally able to pass with a distinction. Praise God! I will see you on the 10 August, for my first FAC1601 lecture, and God willing I will be able to graduate next year.

Many thanks and regards

Riana Mooi
