Essentials of Accounting is a self-teaching, self-paced introduction to financial accounting for active users of business data - rather than preparers of accounting information (bookkeepers). It presents the ideas and terminology essential to an understanding of balance sheets, income statements, and statements of cash flows. Every frame requires students to solve a problem involving accounting information - e.g., selecting a correct word from two choices, providing an answer, making a journal entry, or preparing a complete balance sheet.
