The bookkeeping courses were simple and had a good gradient. I didn't feel confused or lost at any time during the two first couress. The third course was QuickBooks and that got a bit complicated as there was some omitted steps that was not explained. On the other hand if you are going to be super specific the course would take over 100 hours. I figured it out and the explanations given by the instructor was otherwise detalied. When I emailed him he answered within 48 hours on the two first courses but hasn't answered anything on my third course so not sure what is up.
I'm in the middle of taking two different Udemy courses, Java Programming Masterclass and the Complete 2019 Web Development. I paid about about 15 USD for these courses and both are excellent (IMHO). I know that some people have had bad experiences with Udemy courses and I think that maybe because Udemy doesn't seem to be very good at setting the standards for courses they offer. So some are good and some not so good.
So I suggest that the best way to approach Udemy courses is two fold: 1. Don't buy any class that doesn't have at least 500 reviews and an average review score greater than 4.0 (out of 5). (It also helps to read some of the reviews as well.) 2. Never pay more than 20 USD for a course. If you adhere to these guidelines, I don't see how you can go wrong. Where else are you going to get a good to great course for less than the price of a book?

I have completed multiple courses so far, and have been so informed as to the content of each course. A lot of folks on here are giving Udemy a 1 star review for the fact that they have had issues obtaining a discount. I have received discounts with all of my courses, with no problem at all. I do notice that it is indeed easier to sign up for and do the coursework on my Mac, not my phone. So happy that I found this great platform with wonderful educators! Thank you Udemy!!!
The courses are very simple and up to the expectations at very cheap prices... Beginner to advanced...all the level courses are available..so that you can choose one from them. You can't learn everything to the very advanced level...but they could give some basic ideas about that particular course.
I have taken several courses (about 6 or 7) and have found the instructors to be professional and knowledgeable. The content has been engaging and cause reflection and opportunities to practice. I would recommend the life coaching courses for the instructors I have enrolled with.

Never trust Udemy. It is the most pathetic, unworthy and untrustful site. Here are the reasons:
1. I was preparing for Google Cloud certification and I purchased 3 courses from Udemy. All the 3 courses were removed one week before my certification exam. The refund does not happen automatically. We need to raise a request. The site is too bad and too confusing. So, we cannot rely on Udemy at all. The courses on Udemy are pathetically arranged and recorded. Prefer Coursera, LinuxAcademy or CloudAcademy as they provide a good quality courses.
2. Udemy cannot be trusted as your data is posted on other sites. My comments for a course could be seen on https://courses.javacodegeeks.com/ site of which I don't have account. When I contacted Udemy to remove the message, they mislead the students by saying that contact the instructor. When I contact the instructor the instructor says that "This is really strange and am not sure why and how it's happening. It had happened before as well. Seems these sites like javacodegeeks.com are being paid by udemy to promote these courses because when I click on enroll course on that page, it redirects it to Udemy."
3. There is no guarantee that Udemy will not sell your bank account to hackers if they can post your comments to other sites for publicity and misled the students.
In short, never use Udemy account. They are unreliable and their customer care sucks. Even if the course is offer free, don't register on Udemy. Most of the courses are time waste. Better prefer Coursera, LinuxAcademy or CloudAcademy as they are much safe and protect your privacy in terms of your comments, login details and account details.
I enrolled for one of the Udemy courses and found that after the 30 day money back guarantee period had expired the online tutorials went down from 13 hours to 8 minutes, if this is not sharp practice what is?
When seeing all over the experience with Udemy is too bad and I never recommend anyone to go for udemy. Type of YouTube channels are better than udemy.. At least you can save your money. Because udemy doesn't have:
2) customer service executives are not friendly.
3) problem will not be resolved.
4) unbroken promise of lifetime access.
Reason behind for the review: I have purchased full stack web stack web development course on udemy and I have accessed the course for one week also. But suddenly the course has been disappeared from my account. When approaching customer services for the issue just they replied that, "We will update you via mail", and closing the chat. But the fact is that, they don't know how long will it take to resolve the issue. Peak of the story is that, they even don't have recorded data of purchase of the course in udemy. While showing the evidence of purchasing and accessing the course also they are not coming forward to resolve the issue.. It's completely Waste of money...
Many of my coworkers choose to use Udemy for continuing education. I feel it has the best selection, training and curriculum vs others I have tried. Yes, the courses may be longer than others, but they're more detailed.
A few days ago I tried to change my email address at Udemy. Their form required me to change my password also, didn't want to... but I did it. However, Udemy NEVER recognized the changes, and now I can't get access to my account. Udemy is the only online company I have ever dealt with that has no human support service at all. They do not have a contact form, a phone number or online chat. Their address is: Udemy, 600 Harrison St., San Francisco, CA 94107. At this point I have no option but to have my lawyer send them a letter.
