I have this accounting book:

The word careers has 18 listings in the index. The term chart of accounts only has 5. You can't do accounting without a chart of accounts but you don't have to be a professional accountant to do accounting. It also doesn't start talking about depreciation until page 624 in an 800 page book but it has an example of a business woman spending $3000 on computer equipment on page 52. She would loose $2000 in depreciation in two years on that equipment. Used machines would cost a lot less and greatly reduce that depreciation. The book has lots of color glossy pictures though, Bill Gates is on page 573.

Accounting is a lot easier than most accounting books make it seem. The books force the student to memorize a lot of trivia but never supply a good diagram.

Computers should make accounting a piece of cake with a basic understanding by the user.
