    There was quite a bit of information in here, and I felt a bit overwhelmed at first. Once I completed it, I was glad that I took the time to complete the course.

    The course provides knowledge beyond Income Statement and Balance Sheet. It provides a tool in finalizing the accounts by doing an analyses of income statement and balance sheet of two or more periods and bringing to fore probable future financial problems that a company may face. The course also provides knowledge why a successful company may be facing working capital problems, may be more riskier and allows one to do investment analysis etc.

    I learned a great deal from this book about the Balance Sheet and Income Statement accounts in a more in depth scope. I also learned about some of the trends to look for when determining the financial condition of a company and how to calculate some of the financial ratios.
