Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Accounting is by far my favorite class at Oxford High School. I thoroughly enjoy the math and business concepts behind the study. I would recommend this class to anyone because it involves real world situations that will prepare you for dealing with a bank. For example, in the class you learn how to balance your checkbook and bank statement, this is known as bank reconciliation. You also learn how to write a check, which is an incredibly useful thing to learn before you graduate from high school.
This course teaches you the basics of accounting. Although it seems like a class that is only useful to people who are eager to become accountants, that is most certainly not the case. Some of the course highlights include: learning how to balance a checkbook and write a check. Through processes like this you gain the necessary skills to having a well-funded bank account. The best thing that I have learned from this course so far is that this is a career path that I definitely want to follow. The more I delve into the subject the more I want to pursue it in college. I loved learning how to fill out journals and general ledgers for businesses. I also enjoyed finding out the concepts that guide businesses whilst making financial decisions.

Advice for students:
I think this is an advantageous course to take during your high school career because the concepts it teaches you are useful in real world situations. However, accounting is not for everyone. If you do not like working with numbers for long periods of time, this is not the class for you. I do have a few study tips for students who are interested in this subject. The best thing to do for any class is take good notes and look over them the days before the quiz or test. If you have any questions do not hesitate to email your teacher or even ask a fellow student. Also, pay attention to the questions other students ask, sometimes someone will ask something that you were confused on as well. Finally, a great way to understand accounting is to repeat the steps over and over again until it is embedded in your brain.
