This class was tough.
This was a tough course but yet a very interesting one if you like accounting. This course is all about mergers and acquisitions and how treat them from an accounting perspective.
Although it was a very challenging course, I enjoyed learning about how to record entries related to company merges and acquisitions. Of all the upper level accounting courses I found this one to be the most difficult due to the intricate entries involved. In this course you are taught how to consolidate the books involved in M&A's. I was also taught how to record entries related to intangible assets and how companies can put a valuation on hard to measure intangible assets such as "goodwill." This was a very intriguing course for me. I enjoyed the challenge!

Advice for students:
Ask questions if you do not understand right away. Read and study the material. Try to familiarize yourself with the chapter that way you can have an idea what the instructor is discussing during the lecture.
