Please use this accounting section to ask any question in any week. This material can be intimidating, but if you read it in sections at a time, you will do just fine. All of my successful students have shared that they read the chapters at least twice so make sure you set ample time each week.

Week one needs to be mastered and is the foundation for the rest of the class. It is paramount that you understand the accounting equation, the normal balances of each type of account, and how to properly prepare journal entries.  Below are videos I made for chapters 1 and 2. They are about 30 minutes each.   ;)

Setting aside at least an hour a day for your readings is essential for success. Posting an appropriate subject line will also help others when they search in this forum. Let me know if you have any questions. I am excited that when you graduate, you will be "financially literate" and be able to run your own business. Good luck!!  8)
