Basic Accounting Review Guide

Over the next few weeks, I will be providing a review of some basic introductory accounting. This should help you in familiarizing yourself with what accounting is, how it is used, and how to do it. This guide will be a useful refresher for those that have not used accounting in a while, but is not intended to be a complete instruction tutorial.

(Note that much of the information I am discussing in this series of posts is borrowed from "Intermediate Accounting" by Kieso, Weygant, and Warfield.)

This is an outline of topics I intend to cover over the next series of blogs. As I finish future entries, I will come back to this entry and drop in links to those posts.
