Relevant topics easily presented

I found this course very relevant to my work - particularly leasing and the revenue recognition standards. I also found the chapter on the impact to financial reporting of the new Tax Law very interesting. I have to admit I learned more of what is included in the Tax Act than I had before taking the course.
