This course has a lot of really good information on cash flows and the many ways in which to monitor and improve those. It is a great read for anyone working in a business or for CPAs advising their clients on financials. Too many people look only at the income statement and don't understand the need to monitor cash - this would be a good source for all business leaders.

After this course, I understand A stock split is when a company divides and increases the number of shares available to buy and sell on an exchange. A stock split lowers its stock price but doesn't weaken its value to current shareholders. It increases the number of shares and might entice would-be buyers to make a purchase.

Great refresher course on the fundamentals of cash flow management. Handy review of key ratios and elements of free cash flow and forecasting. Like the text version as it better allows going at your own pace.

This was one of the best courses on Cash Flows I've taken. There was lots of great information. I provided great context about how to look at Cash Flows versus the Income Statement.
