Description

73 pages [29 self-teaching + 44 self-quizzes with detailed answers]

Master double-entry bookkeeping/accounting in one short sitting —around 2 hours.

Ideal before you start any accounting course, for on-the-job training or to nail down a skill you may feel insecure about.

Section 1: How a business keeps track of its money. How bookkeeping measures every item and activity in dollars. The “chart of accounts” made easy. Self-quiz makes sure you really know it.

Section 2: Every transaction affects two or more accounts. When you buy a car your Asset—Car account goes up, but your Cash account goes down. When you buy an ad in the local paper, your Advertising Expense account goes up, but so does your Accounts Payable (bills that are payable later). Filled with examples. Double- quiz lets you practice as if you were on the job.

Section 3: Recording journal entries. Pick up the simple rules of double-entry bookkeeping. Which amounts go in which accounts and how to show this. Filled with examples. Double-quiz lets you practice until you know it cold.

Section 4: The general ledger accounts. Shows you what a ledger account looks like on a computer v. on paper. Explains how journal entries you learned go into the accounts. Now learn how to quickly find and retrieve financial information from the accounts—such as:

  • your company’s cash balance
  • your company’s sales for any month
  • which bills your company has paid or not paid

And other financial information. Double-quiz lets you practice finding and retrieving financial information fast!

Section 5: The income statement and balance sheet. Snapshot of the financial statements and how they are compiled from the general ledger accounts.

Section 6: The accounting cycle. An overview of the accounting process from start to finish.

  1. Good Novice Prep

    Shaina Griffin

    I bought the paperback book. I am a new independent bookkeeper and was nervous about my skills. I had plenty of resources for studying but for some reason it still didn’t help me feel like I understood it. This book helps break double-entry accounting in a simple way and the quizzes helped reinforce that I was understanding the material. I feel ore confident in the services I provide now.

    I found it very informative, but I did not like that when I download the books, it downloads as a solid graphic and not as a graphic with text. This didn’t allow me, who has vision problems, to listen to them with a text reader as well as reading. It took me a lot longer than normal to process the book than I would have otherwise. It would also be nice if videos and other interactive demonstrations were provided with the course. Very limited to be online in book format.

    The course was great, the only thing that needs to be better is the feedback on the test for the association certificated. I would like to know if I passed it or not in order to prepare better for the national exam.

    I could never wrap my head around debits and credits and when to do either. I can’t believe how this book broke it down into steps that I could understand. Something that has intimidated me for so many years is now clear as a bell. Thank you!!!!!

    I’m using this book to help new data entry staff members who may not have any formal education to get the basics down of debits and credits. This book does a great job of simply explaining and demonstrating the how’s and why’s of bookkeeping entries.

    I thought the course was a good review if you were already trained in double-entry bookkeeping. That said, I think the course would be better if it included additional basic/introductory lessons to help those whose first training was 30 years ago.

    Excellent course. Orients the student to how each entry relates to overall statements and provides a solid easily understood foundation. Great review for experienced bookkeepers as well if you have not worked for a while.
