I liked the nuanced detail included in the training materials. Calculating a liability and asset is not all that hard, but knowing exactly the pieces and parts that get us to the appropriate result is crucial. This course did a fine job at emphasizing that.

This course is useful with my company implementing the new lease standards. The PDF material is well organized. I found the review questions at the end of each topic are also helpful.

There is no mention of economic growth companies and results of covid. It was great to have all of the examples, but as a text-based course, would expect it to be more comprehensive.
