From the Contributor
In this course you will learn, not only how to prepare the summary of account and all supporting schedules, but also how to prepare a complete report, to go along with the summary and supporting schedules. You will know how to prepare a complete package, ready for Court filing and for presentation to the beneficiaries of a trust or estate. This course is essential for well-rounded knowledge for CPAs, because, in recent years, the use of trusts in estate planning has become widespread. Also, CPAs are being called upon, more and more, to prepare estate accountings in Probate Court

I don't know where else I could have got this instruction this cost-effectively and without reading a big book, for which my time is limited. This does the job for me.
The technical material in this course is excellent. Specific subjects that were of interest to me were well covered in the course, including "accounting income;" depreciation and depletion; and the difference between income and principal. The course book is an excellent reference guide. The DVD itself is well organized with a table of contents and therefore can also serve as a reference tool.
I highly recommend this DVD and accompanying course book.
