Great Introduction to Documentary Budgeting

by Atsen Jonathan Ahua
I am certainly pleased with this introduction. It has the unique feminie touch; exposing just enough to get you madly interested but keeping the goodies covered until a real commitment is made. The commitment will be made surely.

Very useful!

This short course provides a good common sense approach to breaking your project down into small chucks so you can watch and manage your project cashflow. Very useful if you are preparing a new project and what to work out where the big spends are going to be. Great course.
