The slides are not consistent with the questions. The details in the slides were missing to answer the questions. Using the internet didn't even produce the answers that were on the exam, some of the answers were even incorrect according to the IRS website. Example... Where you had 15.5% ABC, the IRS has 16.0%

Overall the presentation was informative. However at time it felt like he was just reading the provisions rather than trying to teach the provisions for understanding. It would have nice for him to add real life examples.

I loved how the presenter was able to clearly explain and describe legislation which is at its heart very complicated. It was easy to understand and I was able to retain my knowledge of the subject matter.

Course covers a variety of topics related to Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, some that will affect a large amount of people and some that wouldn't. Enjoyed the topics either way though.

Not my favorite course. An ok overview but the slides don't do much to improve understanding rather than just repeat the new rules. Ok refresher.

One of the most boring presentations ever. the information presented could have been looked up as it was read without ANY examples.

This is one of the worst webinars ever. Too broad, does not explain anything and exam questions absurd!
