EXCELLANT! A great review or learning experience for those who don't have much exposure to WC Management. Easily understood, terms defined. Perfect! Suggestion, a "cheat" sheet of all formula's shown, a generalized direction favorable/unfavorable (i.e., CR over 1 good, but over 1.3 maybe not so good, but under 1, not good).

Great course. Joseph did a good job explaining the various ratios and provided real life examples of how an improvement/decrease in one of the ratios will impact the sample company. Great refresher of all the various ratios that I previously learned.

The course was a decent overview on working capital. I've taken a couple of classes from this instructor, and it would be great if he could use parentheses when presenting formulas as he does not follow order of operations when it comes to math.

Overall, the course was good for those a limited accounting background. However, the instructor tends to focus on the perspective of an Equity Analyst as opposed to an internal financial analyst or outside creditor.

Good information presented in a concise and straightforward way. Presentation was a little dry and may be a bit confusing to a person without much knowledge of working capital or ratio analysis.

Well-presented course. Good for those unfamiliar with the topic and a nice review for a financial manager looking to maximize improved working capital position (or sitting on excess cash).

Great course. I very much liked the real world example of Dell. Also felt that the conversation and real world application added to the content. Beyond just the slides.

Course itself was good explained. The final exam questions were confusing especially the 'except of' questions. Maybe this is easier for native Speakers.

Felt like a lot of ratios. Although relevant, I would've liked to have seen more operational perspective in the course. Felt a bit academic.
