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 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.

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.

    This book is an excellent starting place to learning about debits and credits. It does an admirable job with what is a difficult concept for some.

    Explained in depth with total understandings of the principles of accounting. Vocabulary was right on with terms used everyday in work place. Double-entry Bookkeeping explained the debits and credit.

    I did not take the course since I had a great deal of prior experiece, however, I see a big need for this basic course for some of the office personnel charged with entering data and writing checks when they really have no fundamentals. It is surprising to find this but believe me it exists.

    For anyone wanting to learn double-entry bookkeeping in a down to roots program, this study is a must. It was a review for me of my college accounting, and I was reminded of a variety of facts that I knew but needed a refresher.
