    Depreciation was my favorite class, because the differences between book and tax depreciation was interesting to understand. The teaching and guidance provided a strong foundation for depreciation accounting. Some of the text in the book was ambiguous and should be looked into.

    The material was relevant to the exam with the exception of the sum of the years digits. The book claims it isn’t on the exam but it actually was.
