Business & Economics Podcasts >

Goal: One stop location to find accounting information, help, and training. Differentiation – 1) Large comprehensive selection of topics including financial accounting, managerial accounting, tax, and small business tips. 2) Use of trial balance and chart of accounts including an explanation to understand more concepts as they relate to the accounting process as a whole, including the double entry accounting system, the chart of accounts, and debits and credits. Many books and resources focus on very limited aspects of a topic leaving us with little understanding of how it fits into the double entry accounting system, how it relates to debits and credits, and how it would be journalized to a trial balance. We make an effort to show these accounting relationships. Learning Philosophy – Accounting is learned best by doing. Much of accounting should be learned with the use of electronic spreadsheets such as Excel or Google Sheets. Learning accounting is also the best way to learn how to use electronic spreadsheets. These are not 2 separate activities to be learned in isolation from each other, but rather they should be learned at the same time, so open up Excel or sign up to a free Google Sheets account and let’s work some problems. Objectives: • Provide learning resources to any user including accounting students, users who work in an accounting department or firm, or anybody who wants to learn more about accounting, and or, Excel • Allow users to locate what they need in a quick and easy way • Provide example problems which break down concepts into learnable parts • Provide example problems that explain the use of electronic spreadsheets like Excel so that users can learn how to use these applications within a practical context • Provide lectures that discuss accounting topics • Provide reading material to explain accounting topics
