long description:
This course will teach you step by step the accounting process. All material needed to complete this course will be uploaded and provided for you by the instructor online. This course is for students that know little or nothing about accounting but is also advanced for accountants that just want to brush up on accounting. We will cover in the first course:

Six Steps to success--Schedule, Motivate, Focus, Read, review, and look ahead.

The language of business--The process of accounting and its critical function within a business. Different types of businesses are introduced, and you will also explore numerous career opportunities in accounting.

Analyzing Business Transactions--The accounting equation, a simple mathematical statement upon which the entire accounting process is based. You will see how this equation is used to analyze business transactions (events). You will also learn how the effect of these transactions is summarized and reported in basic financial statements.

Using T Accounts--You will continue to learn to analyze and record business transactions. However, you will learn to use debits and credits and T accounts, rather than just increases and decreases in elements of the accounting equation, in completing this process. Transaction information will be summarized in a report called a trial balance, then you will once again prepare the income statement, statement of owner?s equity, and balance sheet.

The General Journal and the General Ledger--journalize transactions and post journal entries. Journalizing will involve analyzing transactions as you did in the previous lesson; you will simply record them in a journal rather than a T account. Then you will post information form the journal to the accounts. As in the previous lesson, a trial balance will be prepared after all journal entries are posted. This lesson focuses on the flow of data through the accounting information system within a business.

Time Management--In this lesson we will go over some basic time management skills that are necessary for life and career.

Adjustments and the worksheet--We will focus on accounting work necessary at the end of an accounting period, after regularly occurring transactions have been journalized and posted, but before the financial statements are prepared. You will learn how to prepare adjusting entries and the work sheet. You will learn how to compute depreciation by several alternative methods.

In the second course we will pick up where we are going to leave off. Starting with Financial Statements and the Closing Process. As a student of this course, you will learn how it's done! Step by step, you will receive a solid foundation of knowledge and this course will teach you the practical accounting skills that are needed in the "real world."
You will learn:
