    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I like computer a lot so my major was computer science but when I studied more about this major I did not like it so I changed my mind and now I major in Business. I took Financial Accounting class and I love it. I felt like this is the path for me so I tried my best then I got good grade.

    Course highlights:

    I did not know anything about accounting and after I took this class, I have learned a lot. The highlights of this course was that the equations so calculate the given data. I did not realize that for accounting we have to use its own equations to solve the data.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Spend time reading books, practice, research and ask for help when you get stuck. This course is not easy but not that hard but you have to put effort in it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If accounting is your major, then this course is definitely worth adding to your list of coursework. This course covers everything you need to know about accounting for businesses, Helping companies make sound financial business decisions is what it's all about. Very interesting and informative.

    Course highlights:

    Accounting for Business Transactions is where you start, and then the course takes you through the financial statements and making adjusting entries. Next you will learn accounting for Merchandising Operations. Inventories and Cost of Sales is very interesting and pretty easy to grasp. Of course you will learn about accounting for receivables, long-term assets and liabilities. But once you learn the basic accounting rules and formulas it all starts to make much more sense. One of the last things you will learn is Corporate reporting and analysis, which is very interesting, but also is jam packed with a lot of information to try and memorize. So plan on spending extra time on that chapter.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is definitely very valuable information to have if your goal is to be an accountant after graduating. So yes this is one course you should take, it is totally worth every minute that you must spend learning. Learning the GAAP form of accounting, preparing financial statements, Knowing how to make assets = liabilities + owner's equity is worthless if you just go through the motions. The main objective is to learn all those things that I have mentioned. but to also know why you are doing what you are doing, You have to be able to say "I Get it" , without that, your just going through the motions. And what fun is that? You'll never be happy and successful, if you don't love what you do for a living.
