This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of financial statements with an emphasis on the income statement. Building on the foundation formed in the first course, you will learn about the third of our three measurement questions and how the income statement helps to answer this final measurement question. Returning to the real business people introduced in the first course, this second course describes the basic content of income statement in a simple yet relevant context. The course ends by summarizing many of the lessons learned in both courses to leave you with a lasting impression about what financial statements are and how accounting can work for you. We all know that accounting is “the language of business”; let’s make learning this language engaging, and perhaps even fun!

TOP REVIEWS FROM UNDERSTANDING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS: COMPANY PERFORMANCE
The course explains in very simple ways the essentials for understanding how companies actually perform, although it would be helpful if they used more examples to explain the ratios.
Great set of courses for a beginner in the accounting field. Informative and well taught. Thanks to Kevin Jackson for making potentially complicated subject matter simple and easy to relate to.
Overall the course was good but my frustration lies in the fact that I am now unable to clear the clutter of these courses from my screen because I only audited the course. Why is this the case?
Good course that helpful for me to futher understand the financial statement on how the company performed
