Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
I would reccomend this class if you really want to learn the basics of Accounting, however, if you're just trying to get through it for credit, Professor Monforte can be a little overbearing and too excited about the subject. She calls on people all the time so you have to always be ON. Its A LOT of work including online hw, a huge accounting project, and tests (which are really tough).
The basics of accounting such as crediting and debiting accounts, financial statements (Income statement, Balance sheet, statement of cash flows), concepts like depreciations, assets, liabilities, how to set up financial statements, financial statement analysis, ratios etc. There are a lot of numbers involved and while its basic arithmatic, you have to understand what to claculate and where to put the numbers.

Advice for students:
STUDY. Don't wait till the last minute and try to brute force memorize. You really need to understand conceptuals, so at the start of the semester, really pay attention to what you're learning, because the rest of the course builds off of that stuff.
