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. ERICA

    it’s well written and easy to read, the only thing i would sugest that you add the accounting equation A=L+Owner’s equity. The way i was tought is that a credit or a debit is depending on the side of the equation is and what does it do to the account (decrease it or increase it) and that increases are always in the outside…..Also adding pictures will make the reading more pleasent

    I’m quite enjoyed reading this. The author does a good job in writing a lively and accessible book about what many might consider to be a somewhat dry subject.

    Used it to train self employed (do-it-yourselfers). I often train folk who want to use Quickbooks to bill their customers and write their checks to pay bills. So, some basic concept of bookkeeping language and process helps them stay on track – then I don’t have as much to “fix” come month end and reconciliation time.
