lease problems in the course packet are available for download.
- As you prepare for the test, several questions have
been asked that may be of interest:
- Are we responsible for disclosures? Yes. It
doesn't do any good if you know how to account for something but don't know
how to communicate it. Don't memorize them, but simply spend 5 minutes,
read over them and be familiar with them.
- Will the test be more weighted toward leases? Yes
- probably about 60% leases, 40% current liabilities and contingencies.
- Are we responsible for gain contingencies? Yes,
we discussed loss contingencies in class and gain contingencies simply give
rise to possible gains.. With gain contingencies, you do not recognize
the gain until it is realized.
