This class is everything you need to know to become a bookkeeper. It tells you the skills, the knowledge you need, the training you need & the work environment.

Majo is an excellent instructor. If you're unsure if bookkeeping is the right career choice for you, definitely take this course. You'll learn exactly what a bookkeeper does and if it's the right career path for you!

Jennibeth27 April 2015

This course was very helpful in learning the basics of bookkeeping and what I expect from following a career into it. Dr. Jacinto makes all her lessons and courses easy to understand. She was the main reason why I learned more of Accounting 1 in Accounting 2 than the actual Accounting 1 class and the reason why I chose to change my major to Accounting. This course has me excited to learning more on where and what I can use my knowledge on. I would definitely recommend this course. It takes less than an hour and you can test yourself on your weaknesses and improve on them. Thank you Professor Jacinto!
