This interactive tutorial includes 30 chapters which cover basic accounting terms, financial statements, the accrual method, double entry bookkeeping, the matching concept, assets, inventories, amortization, the time value of money, liabilities and owners' equity, financial investments, analysis, and more.
Every concept is gradually introduced with simple examples. As you progress, it asks questions (fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, yes/no) to ensure you understand the concepts. It uses graphics to illustrate the key concepts and break the monotony of plain text.
