- This course is an excellent course for beginners as well as advanced learners. We start from the basics and move all the way through financial accounting topics in a systematic way. We will be using some Microsoft Excel worksheet, but we will start off slow as we learn Excel as well. If you do not have Excel, you may be able to open the files using Google Sheets, which is free. If you do not have either of these options, you can move forward without this component of the course. However, Excel worksheets are where learners get to really engage with the material and work through problems. Therefore, we do suggest getting access to Excel or Google Sheets at all possible.
- Recently updated with A LOT of added content.
- Includes downloadable e-book in multiple formats so you can open it on your tablet or Kindle – Formats (EPUB, MOBI, PDF).
- This course is an excellent supplement for students or anybody who wants to learn accounting and also have something they can refer back to in the future. Udemy generally provides lifetime access to the course.
- Many accounting students do not receive a physical book, they get to keep from their school, and even if they did, the information could become dated. Students who want a useful reference tool they can keep, and one that can be more easily updated then a textbook, will benefit from a resource such as this.
- Financial accounting is a LARGE topic and is not something that can be done well in 5, 10, or 20, hours of content, as you may see claimed elsewhere. We will cover accounting theory because theory and concepts are what accounting is. We need to learn theory so we can make appropriate adjustments in the real world. Learning procedures without understanding the theory will make us inflexible and unable to adapt to the ever-changing environment. We will learn the theory while we apply them to procedures.
- Financial accounting is relatively standardized in format. In other words, most accounting institutions will cover much the same topics, often in much the same order. We suggest looking up a standard accounting textbook, checking the index, and comparing the topics to the courses you are considering purchasing. We believe this course will line up well to anybody’s needs who want to learn financial accounting.
