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.

    I found this workbook helpful in the understanding and application of Double-Entry Bookkeeping and I look forward to getting more of the workbooks from AIPB. I would like to see some online options, but for now, the content was helpful and useful.

    Very good class. Wish they would continue to offer the manual class as I know we are going electronically but I feel that if they can’t do it on their own merit then they will not have a full understanding of it.

    The books were very detailed oriented. Sometimes had to much wording which confused myself and even my professor at times and allot of misspelled words. Other then that it was a great learning experience.

    I was extremely satisfied with the course. I was having trouble understanding Debits and Credits. The course really broke it down. I believe knowing this basic information is a requirement for being able to However my funds are so tight which is one of the reasons I am doing this piece by piece. Thank you. record income and expenses accurately. I will be taking the entire course I would like to be certified by September 30th.
