If you are new to bookkeeping and accounting then you should optin to the Accounting for Everyone 12 week online course.
Put together by Quentin Pain in 1998 the course has been available for many years and has recently been updated, although the principles of double-entry have not changed in 600 years.
But what has changed is the way you can think about the logic behind double-entry.
And that is what makes Accounting for Everyone so unique in the world of accounting and bookkeeping courses.
Here's some fundamentals you will want to remember if you ever get stuck either in day to day bookkeeping or if you find yourself taking an accounting exam.
Next time you try to figure out which is the credit and which the debit apply the From/To principle and you will get it.
For example, entering an expense of 100 for travel paid for in cash.
And let's look at the other side. Recording a sale of 500 paid into the bank.

The number of online accounting courses is quite limited, and of those not many are particularly good, but Accounting for Everyone is one of the diamonds in the pack.
It was put together from over 12 years of research into the double-entry model and how it can be explained in a logical way (and trust me, it is not easy to condense 1,000+ page hard to understand text books into something ordinary humans can grasp).
So in 1998 the first edition of the book that transformed double-entry hit the shelves of Amazon: Accounting for Everyone.
Now in its sixth edition, Accounting for Everyone has helped over 12,000 students get to grips with the fundamentals in a way no other course on accounting and bookkeeping ever has.
And you can now get the whole 12 week online Accounting for Everyone course for an extremely low cost.
When you finish, there is an optional Basic Bookkeeping Certificate online exam you can take to show other people you know the basics.
You get access to all the modules immediately as well as the downloadable PDF version of the workbook and access to the online exam.
This includes the following modules:
You get to access the whole course immediately, so you can work as fast or slow as you like.
Plus you also get a downloadable version of the course workbook (150+ pages) including all the question and answer grids that enhance the Accounting for Everyone course.
And on top of that you get full access to our online Basic Bookkeeping Certification exam.
You can take this as many times as you like until you pass (unlike other courses!), but if you go through every week diligently you will have no problem passing the exam.

Any accounting course should start at the very beginning. That is, with a single transaction. This is so you can follow it through the whole accounting process easily.
Unfortunately, that's not how most accounting courses are structured.
Instead you are thrown in at the deep end with jargon and difficult concepts.
Not least of those is that most courses talk about increases and decreases, yet in the real world, we only talk about what's in the bank, and how much we've spent on expenses.
So the Accounting for Everyone Course was designed in an entirely different way.
But the most important thing of all to understand about accounting and bookkeeping is that all you are doing is tracking the flow of money.
Get that, and you will start to understand why we do this work in the first place.
