Enjoyed the course, got a very good grasp of how the forecast is conducted, involving income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement, techniques used to protect and validate data, meaningful charts describing the company's status with respect to cash flow. Course is very well designed and instructors are really great to explain every bit of material, without wasting any time and very precise and always to the point.
