  1. This is my first course here at Ask Lex PH and I am already learning a lot of things. Sir Lopo was able to discuss accounting in the most understandable way. Thank you!

  2. 5 stars is not enough. I am super glad that my former accounting professor is in Ask Lex PH. No doubt, Sir. Jman is the perfect professor for accounting. Not only will he make you understand the lessons more clearly, but he will also teach you how to love and value accounting despite the struggles one may encounter in the course. The perfect and ideal professor, worth every second of discussion!

  3. Very informative and clear presentation sir! Very glad I took up this course and it was very helpful for me to have a review on my past accounting subject. Thank you very much sir 🙂 God bless
