Pretty easy, overall.
Managerial accounting is much different from the 101 financial accounting course. Managerial involves organization and really understanding the meaning behind the numbers - especially because managerial is internal and is by the company for the company.
Focusing on the meaning behind the numbers you're speaking with really makes it easier once you get the hang of it. Understanding why you're using each number makes it a tangible concept when your allocating costs and pulling out fixed and variable expenses from a fixed cost. Finally, toward the end of this course you get to put it all together and create 5 budgets included in your master budget.
