Bart Basi does the impossible--he makes accounting understandable and enjoyable.
Highly recommend this program. I have listened to this speaker before & I would look for him again. He did a very good job of explaining accounting terms which I have encountered before but did not fully understand. Very glad I took this program.

helpful presenter, would like more from him
Very good and really an excellent presentation.
great presentation! dynamic!
Dr. Basi was the best presenter I've seen. These CLE things are often hard to watch. I was surprised at how quickly this one was done, and wanted to hear more. That's a rare thing. I never comment either. I did here, because this man really knows how to present rather dull material in a way that doesn't make it dull. Kudos.
Mr. Basi is exceptionally knowledgeable and interesting in his delivery and anecdotes.
Excellent - would have liked this in a two ot four hour format.

I enjoyed the presentation. Good speaker; good presentation.

Basi is the best!
best lawline presenter
Good insights into recognizing that there are different accounting methodologies!!! Having said that, it still takes some doing to really understand accounting differences--cash v accrual etc!!! Court provides a heads-up but more is required to really understand and apply the different accounting methods!!!
Dr. Basi was an engaging and effective speaker who made dry concepts interesting.
He is the best presenter lawline has
