This class was tough.
Reading as much as possible about real life cases will further personal comprehension in this course. Thorough analysis of the course textbook is vital, as is extra research outside of the classroom to solidify concepts. I have found that most university libraries carry a huge online resource of journals and peer reviewed study that can greatly enhance personal development in this course subject.
As is a constant with any accounting course, accountability and ethical standards are always important. Later courses will expand on this introducing concepts such as the fiduciary duties of duty of care and duty of loyalty. Many historical court rulings rely heavily on these concepts.

Advice for students:
Be prepared in every way. Have course materials well before the beginning of the course and maintain a good standing in class by contributing to class discussions. I have found reading required material in advance helps to solidify understanding and will help to make assignments less stressful. In addition, any coursework should be done in as much detail as possible. Consider the possibility of using this work to draw analysis for future references in advanced courses or even on the job.
