I thought Erik did a good job of covering the basics of the statement of cash flows in a short amount of time, but I wish that the final exam had been a better test of the viewer's knowledge. The questions were very basic and I would've much preferred being given a balance sheet/income statement and forced to construct a statement of cash flows that way. Still, I thought the instruction throughout was clear and the layout of the course made sense.

One of the best explanations of the the cash flow statement that I have seen--his logic helps me better understand the cash flow statement from an intuitive perspective. Also, I didn't really like the floating box around the text. The workbook PDF also should be in a PDF form, Excel or something that I wouldn't need to print out to complete.

I recommend this class because Eric Slayter was easy to follow. The pacing of the class was just right. This class should be taken by anyone who wants a basic understanding of the cash flow statement. He also helped users understand how to compare companies using basic analysis on the statements.

Excellent class. It brings the cashflow to the basic level. I thought I knew cash flow well but I learned new tricks and instead of just doing the mechanics, I actually understood why certain things are handled the way they are. I really also liked the columnar presentation.

Not a fan of the presentation software used to present the material - the hand written notes are hard to read and creates a lag between the information presented. Overall, decent material for basic cash flow introduction.

I loved how clear and simple the walkthrough was! Although the real world has slightly more complication to it as a foundation Mr. Slayter couldn't have made it any easier. Where was he when I was in school?

Good presentation of this important piece of the financials. While I liked the white board providing a classroom effect, I found a little difficult to read. Maybe you can use Excel to make it cleaner?

It was a good overview of the statement of cash flows. The example was simple but very straightforward. It would be helpful to have a harder set of financial statements to practice on.

This would be good for a beginner to the Statement, would prefer you have something more advanced that I could have Sr. Analyst who prepares the CF Statement take.

Quiz and exam too easy. There were too few and too easy questions to really drive home everything we learned about the Statement of Cash Flows.
