In a nutshell, my main site Bean Counter is primarily an educational and information site that offers free bookkeeping and accounting tutorials, courses, tests, quizzes, and games.
Bean Counter's Free Online Accounting and Bookkeeping Tutorials
My free So, you want to learn Bookkeeping! Introductory Bookkeeping Course introduces you to beginning bookkeeping and my style of presenting information. In other words, this online bookkeeping course is for beginners (newbies) and is only an introduction into the world of accounting. They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Well my goal is to make you dangerous. So, if you want to or need to learn the basics of bookkeeping give it a try.
In addition to my Introductory Bookkeeping Tutorial, I've written some additional courses (Bean Counter Series Of Bookkeeping Tutorials) for those of you wanting or needing some additional bookkeeping and accounting education. If you need to expand your bookkeeping knowledge, you need to check out these additional free accounting tutorials. Additional topics covered include cash, inventories, chart of accounts, special journals, and payroll.
These free bookkeeping and accounting courses are presented on my Bookkeeping Tutorial site which I've set up and is dedicated to providing my own series of bookkeeping and accounting tutorials aimed at the small business man or woman or anyone needing a little help and wanting to learn a little about bookkeeping and accounting or actually learn how to do bookkeeping.
Why purchase my bookkeeping and accounting courses ? Why Buy
While all the same materials presented in my Accounting and Bookkeeping Ebook and CD Versions are presented for free online, I do offer my Ebooks and CD Versions for those who want to study offline, print out a hardcopy, and also acquire a handy accounting reference book.
It also benefits us both. A good "deal" is when everyone wins. You win by getting an excellent introductory accounting and bookkeeping reference and I win by getting funds to help support development of additional accounting and bookkeeping tutorials and lessons.
Five free Bookkeeping Tutorials explain and illustrate what's involved in "keeping the books". While accounting and bookkeeping software have made the task of recording and summarizing financial information easier and faster, it's still good to know what's actually being done "behind the scenes" by the software. These five tutorials do not teach bookkeeping; but, rather explain and illustrate what's involved in bookkeeping using the "ole fashion" manual bookkeeping sytem and procedures. These same tasks are now commonly performed using computers and accounting software; but, bookkeepers still need to know how a manual system works in order to properly use accounting and bookkeeping software.
