    I feel the book was well written. Even though I had to read a paragraph more than once to get a better understanding. I found the book to be knowledgeable. I am hoping AIPB gets update books to keep the CB’s up to date.

    I liked this one very much. I wanted more exercises and examples of stock and bond credit analysis. More examples of business reviews and departmental accounting, too.

    Financial Statement Analysis: Emphasizes effective business analysis and decision making by analysts, investors, managers, and other stakeholders of the company.  It continues to set the standard in showing students the keys to effective financial statement analysis. The book presents a balanced view of analysis, including both equity and credit analysis.

    Helpful in understanding the different ways to analyze the financial statements and a bit in understanding how to know what changes the trends. Could have used a bit more help in knowing what makes up the lines on the sample financial statements as each company’s reports are different.

    he information was very well organized and I love the test at the end of each chapter. The test and quiz help to prepare you for the final test. I do believe that working the information in the matter inwhich this course is laid out is the most effective manner.
