    You can't just memorize this unfortunately. You need to understand the concepts behind it.
    I remember having a really hard time with this as well, and ended up watching the videos over and over again and working the problems step by step along with the video. Then I thought I had it, and got it all wrong and started over yet again. Eventually I had it down pretty good. The T accounts method was very helpful to me. You might be able to find some Roger videos on this on youtube to help you out.

    Good luck, it was tricky for sure.

    Go with the master: Alan Mursau, who has now passed away. The man got me through 3 semesters of intermediate and BEC. Many standards have changed since he last posted but most of his videos remain relevant. He is the king of DV-LIFO

    @Recked those roger videos helped me a lot when I struggled with statements of cash flows. The key for me was to listen, take notes, listen, take notes and do the questions over and over again. Even though I have not studied statement of cash flows in a while, I can still answer those questions. I think some videos are worth it. Taking good notes help not to have to go to the videos again, but hey if you have to you have to.

    What is the difference between the direct method and the indirect method for the statement of cash flows?Main Difference between Direct and Indirect Method of SCF

    The main difference between the direct method and the indirect method of presenting the statement of cash flows (SCF) involves the cash flows from operating activities. (There are no differences in the cash flows from investing activities and/or the cash flows from financing activities.)

    Under the U.S. reporting rules, a corporation has the option of using either the direct or the indirect method. However, surveys indicate that nearly all large U.S. corporations use the indirect method.

    Example of the Indirect Method of SCF

    When the indirect method of presenting a corporation's cash flows from operating activities is used, this section of SCF will begin with a corporation's net income. The net income is then followed by the adjustments needed to convert the accrual accounting net income to the cash flows from operating activities. A few of the typical adjustments are:

    Adding back depreciation expenseAdding the decrease in accounts receivableDeducting the increase in inventoryDeducting the decrease in accounts payableAdding the increase in accrued expenses payableExample of the Direct Method of SCF

    When the direct method of presenting a corporation's cash flows from operating activities is used, the amount of net income is not the starting point. Instead, the direct method lists the cash amounts received and paid by the corporation. Here are a few of the more common descriptions that will be seen under the direct method:

    Cash from customersCash paid to employeesCash paid to suppliersCash paid for interest

    The direct method also requires a reconciliation of net income to the cash provided by operating activities. (This is done automatically under the indirect method.)
