This class was tough.
It's challenging, but very directive if your goal is to become a CPA. The professor is very helpful in providing tips and strategies to taking the exam and the whole class is dedicated to providing you all the information you need for the specific section of the exam. The material is a lot to digest, but the professor went above and beyond to providing comprehensive, yet detailed notes to simplify the concepts while retaining the core substance.
I learned about the functions, financial statements, and funding of nonprofits and governmental entities. I learned the book knowledge as well as practical knowledge of how it will apply. I feel very prepared to take the FAR part of the CPA exam and secure in knowing that the professor offered his time and assistance after the course is over in order to help us pass the exam and excel.

Advice for students:
Keep a lot of notecards on you to remember all the minor details. Practice often by doing the homework and going over it again when he posts the solutions. Read the chapters and review his lecture notes. Usually, he'll have the lecture notes available so you can use it simultaneously to reading for better understanding. Practice the journal entries and be prepared for simulation questions.
