Created by Robert (Bob) Steele - CPA, CGMA, M.S. Tax, CPI

If we are a business owner or accounting professional who would like to get a better understanding of what our accounting software is doing


An accounting student or student in general that would like to get a better understanding of what our accounting textbook is doing

This course is a course for us.

Business owners, accounting professionals, and accounting students often have the same problem with accounting. . .

that we are focused on one small component of the accounting process and not able to make all the necessary connections to other components of the accounting process to fully benefit from an understanding of how the business runs.

Business owners focus on cash flow and revenue, accounting professionals focus on their component of the accounting department and enter data into the accounting software, and accounting students focus on the topic they are currently working on.

Accounting professional often focus on one component of the accounting cycle like accounts receivable, accounts payable, or payroll often not having much time to consider the relationship with other areas of the accounting cycle.

Accounting software helps simplify the data entry process, but the simplification also restricts us from seeing how the data is being processed into the end product, into financial statements and reports.

Students are focused on one component of the accounting cycle at a time following an accounting textbook that is putting the pieces of the accounting puzzle together one step at a time.

As students zoom their focus into the current topic, they often lose sight of it fits into the larger objective and this loss of sight causes students to question the relevance of what they are losing. Student’s questioning the relevance of what they are learning causes students to lose interest. A loss of student interest causes students grades to fall.

Part of the reason accounting textbooks have a difficult time incorporating the current topic into the big picture is that a textbook is restricted by what can fit on a page and the problems a textbook provides are restricted by what a student can accomplish with paper and pencil.

The use of instructional video providing a step by step process along with Excel that allows students to sum up large columns of numbers in a short time provides the tools to create a comprehensive problem that will demonstrate current topics in the context of the entire accounting process.

Why Take This Course?

We will start to learn the accounting cycle in a comprehensive way and learn the fundamental of Excel.

Learning the accounting process without Excel or Excel without accounting is a waste of time and not an efficient way to learn either topic.

Like assets being equivalent to liabilities and equity, accounting is equivalent to Excel in many ways and therefore learning Excel will accelerate our learning of accounting and make what we learn more applicable.

Accounting is also the perfect tool to learn Excel. This course will not provide a broad overview of everything Excel can do because that is not a way to learn. Courses attempting to demonstrate all the functions Excel fail to create value for learners because learners will not retain what they learn without a foundation of core concepts and a reason for learning each new function.

This course will cover the fundamentals of Excel, those components used 99% of the time, and the components needed as a foundation for learning more about Excel.

The core components of Excel we will learn include adding, subtracting, and summing up columns of numbers.

We will learn the core concept of Excel through demonstration, repetition, and application to practical problems.

What Will Be Included in This Course?

In addition to instruction video we include an Excel worksheet with just about every presentation allowing us to both see the completed answer and work through the problems step by step along with the video.

Each Excel workbook includes at least two tabs. One tab will have the answer so that we can see how the completed worksheet is constructed and the second tab will provide us the opportunity to enter the data along with the instructional video.

Who Will We Be Learning From?

We will be learning from somebody who has practical accounting experience as a practicing CPA, teaching experience, curriculum design experience.

Credentials include:

We are learning from someone who has both instruction and curriculum development experience needed to construct comprehensive courses of a technical nature in a way that meets students’ needs and expectations.

 What Will We Learn?

We will learn how to complete the components of the accounting cycle and the fundamental of Excel including addition, subtraction, and the sum function.

Below is a short list of what is included in the accounting cycle and what we will cover in the course:

  • Journalizing journal entries
  • Posting to the general ledger
  • Create a trial balance
  • Financial statement generation

How Will We Be Taught?

We will learn through viewing and then doing.

We will demonstrate each component of the problem in small digestible parts using both a completed Excel worksheet and instructional video.

We will provide an Excel worksheet that can be filled in along with the instructional video or after watching the instructional video.

Please join us in learning Accounting, Excel, debits, and credits.

It will be Great

Mini Course on Accounting Skills for Business Owners

A very short , concise and to the point accounting course

Created by Adnan Hasbi - Passionate Teacher Changing 1 Life at a Time


Students: 19428, Price: Free

Accounting can be a very dry and daunting subject for many. To be honest, some lecturers that teach this subject almost sound like they are speaking a different language Accounting-lish ! Even the text books can be as dry. I vividly remember having to study this subject when I was in University and it was a struggle. Luckily for me after working for a couple of years in a Big 4 and seeing the application of Accounting. It just clicked for me.

So I made it a mission of mine to give back and teach this subject to the new generation of accountants so I have created this course to help you in your accounting journey. So in this course we shall cover the following :

- Why Even Study Accounting

I think this section is extremely important to cover as it gives you a context on why you should even study this subject. Only upon knowing the why, this will enable us to gain some context on why we study this subject in the 1st place.

- The Basic Lingo - What is an Asset, Liability & Shareholder Equity

To understand a book, we need to know the words. And like accounting, to understand the statements we need to have a grasp on the accounting lingo.

- The Accounting Equation - Asset = Liability + Equity    
This is the very base of accounting knowledge.

Financial Accounting-Debits & Credits-Accounting Transaction

Includes downloadable e-book in multiple formats so you can open it on your tablet or Kindle -Formats (EPUB, MOBI, PDF)

Created by Robert (Bob) Steele - CPA, CGMA, M.S. Tax, CPI


Students: 14909, Price: Free

Includes downloadable e-book in multiple formats so you can open it on your tablet or Kindle - Formats (EPUB, MOBI, PDF).

Accounting Instruction Reference #100 is a book that sells on Amazon and is available in Kindle, Paperback, and audiobook format. Often times when we receive a book that is published on Amazon it is exciting until we find it is only in PDF format. The e-book we provide is in a format you can use on a tablet and Kindle.

Accounting core concepts will be covered, foundational accounting skills needed for all levels of accounting including the accounting terms, the double entry accounting system, and recording transactions using both the accounting equation and debits and credits.    

These are the accounting fundamentals which most accounting courses spend far too little time on. The better we understand these accounting foundation topics, the better we will do in all accounting concepts.

Like practicing catch or going over those musical scales, practicing the accounting fundamentals is time well spent for beginners as well as experienced accountants. We are never too smart to practice the accounting fundamentals. This course will thoroughly cover the fundamentals and will provide a foundation for learning concepts that limit the likelihood of learning rules that do not always apply.    

We also offer practical practice problems in Excel, along with step by step instructional videos to walk you through an example problem. Learning basic concepts in Excel while learning accounting concepts will advance our ability to learn both topics much faster. We will only cover very basic Excel tops, using step by step instruction, including learning how Excel names cells, how to add and subtract in Excel, and how to use the sum function.  

This course will provide much more structure to the journal entry process than most courses, including a detailed step by step process for thinking about how to construct financial transactions. This process will eliminate the problem of getting stuck and not knowing how to move forward. The process will also help us understand the transactions we are recording and eliminate the problem of learning concepts that do not apply in all circumstances.  

I am available for questions throughout the course. I have been teaching and working in accounting for a long time, have a lot of experience breaking down concepts, and enjoy working with new people.

Accounting in 40 Minutes – Beginner to Intermediate

Learn the basics to intermediate of financial accounting in less than an hour!

The worldview of accounting and accountants may certainly involve some unhelpful characters poring over formidable figures stacked up in indecipherable columns.

However, a short and sweet description of accounting does exist:

Accounting is the language of business efficiently communicated by well-organised and honest professionals called accountants.

A more academic definition of accounting is given by the American Accounting Association:

The process of identifying, measuring and communicating economic information to permit informed judgments and decisions by users of the information.

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants defines accounting as:

The art of recording, classifying, summarizing in a significant manner and in terms of money, transactions and events which are, in part at least of financial character, and interpreting the results thereof.

Accounting not only records financial transactions and conveys the financial position of a business enterprise; it also analyses and reports the information in documents called “financial statements.”

Recording every financial transaction is important to a business organisation and its creditors and investors. Accounting uses a formalized and regulated system that follows standardized principles and procedures.

The job of accounting is done by professionals who have educational degrees acquired after years of study. While a small business may have an accountant or a bookkeeper to record money transactions, a large corporation has an accounts department, which supplies information to:

  • Managers who guide the company.

  • Investors who want to know how the business is doing.

  • Analysts and brokerage firms dealing with the company’s stock.

  • The government, which decides how much tax should be collected from the company.

Principle of Accounting can also refer to the basic or fundamental principles of accounting: cost principle, matching principle, full disclosure principle, revenue recognition principle, going concern assumption, economic entity assumption, and so on.

Created by Eric Knight, DBA, CPA, CGMA - A teacher that makes the complex into something simple


Students: 1070, Price: Free

Accounting can be an intimidating course. Accounting students look forward with anticipation but also hesitance. Non accounting majors that are forced to take accounting look at accounting with dread. This course is designed to make accounting a more friendly course by getting you ready. A big fear of the unknown will now be known.

  • Fear: Unknown

  • Fear: Loss of control

  • Fear: Humiliation

  • Fear: Left behind or lost

  • Fear: Failure

Who will benefit from this course?

Are you about to take financial accounting? Would you like to better understand financial accounting? Are you a student, businessperson or manager that does not have a background in accounting but may need to deal with the accounting department? Then this course would benefit you!

What you will learn

We will learn what accounting really is and what it is not. We will see the truth behind the ‘math’ misunderstanding of accounting. You will get a primer in accounting by understanding what accounting reports. You will get an introduction into basic accounting equation. You will be introduced to debits and credits. You will even learn to use journal entries. I will show you some examples using Excel.

Lesson Descriptions

· Introduction to the course: You will get an overview of this course and what to expect. You will see how this course will help pre-accounting students gain an understanding of accounting. Knowing what accounting is about will take away that fear. Managers that deal with accounting may be at a disadvantage if they do not know what the accounting department does.

· Common student fears introduced: The biggest fears students have in accounting are discussed in this lesson. One fear is that of math. Math can be intimidating or even scary. Math students often fear math because of the use of formulas. Students in math see the questions as right or wrong with no interpretation. Students also fear accounting for its use of rules. Accounting is seen as a profession of rules.  Students believe not knowing the rules can lead to failure. Students often fear the use of debits and credits in problems.  After this course you will understand that none of the common misconceptions about accounting, math, debits and credits, or rules is true. 

· Perception vs reality: What is an accountant’s life like? We perceive accounting and accountants a certain way. In this lesson we’ll discuss that perception. We’ll then discuss the reality of the profession. What do accountants really do? What is their career like?

· Basic accounting terms: Key terms include transaction and account. These terms are used throughout business. The reason for confusion is that there are multiple definitions for these terms in business depending on your role.

· Accounting Reports: What are the reports provided by accountants? You’ll learn the major two accounting reports that are taught in school. You’ll see what kind of information is provided in these reports.

· Who?: In this lesson you will get to see who uses the accounting reports. You’ll find out why accounting reports are so useful and why there is such a need for accountants.

· Math: You will get the truth about math as it is used in financial accounting. There are numbers in accounting but what accountants really do is communicate. The numbers are part of that transfer of information to the user. The ‘math’ accountants use is really just adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. The accounting problems take no special math skills, but those accounting problems may be a challenge. So how should you approach accounting problems when you take the course?

· Accounting Equation: All of financial accounting can be boiled down to one formula: Assets = Liabilities + stockholders’ equity. You will understand this formula as a fundamental or foundation of information you will need for the course.

· Debits and Credits Oh My!: You will know, by the end of the lesson, what a debit and credit is and what they are not. You will understand how these are merely tools for increasing or decreasing accounts.

· Journal Entry: Learn how to do a journal entry. Get some examples from real world transactions. You will follow the journal entries as they are completed using Excel.

Course Prerequisites:

No prerequisite: You will learn the very basics of financial accounting!
