What could be more practical than learning the fundamentals of accounting? With Practical Accounting Fundamentals, we offer a useful, relevant book that will aid your student no matter what career path they choose. Understanding accounting and accounting practices will benefit for life.

The purpose of this book is to give the student a foundation in the accounting process and to enable them to be able to account for any business activities they may be involved in. Secondly, it will help them to decide if they wish to pursue bookkeeping or accounting as a career. Practical Accounting Fundamentals challenges the student with twenty-one chapters of step-by-step, self-paced, self-teaching materials. Each chapter starts with an overview of what is to be learned, followed by a clear example. The student learns by doing the work. Each chapter builds on the previous one and has exercises to reinforce the concepts. In addition, there are two mid-term tests and a final exam. All the exercises and tests have the answers in the answer key at the end of the book.

Understanding accounting is important in any business because it is the basis of business communication. It is important because it is the basis of business communication.
