Why Accounting ?
Accounting is essential to the success of any business or organization.
Why This Site ?
Bookkeepers or anyone can update their skills or learn about accounting and bookkeeping by pursuing free online accounting and bookkeeping courses. Ranging from beginning to advanced courses of accounting, the Internet offers many sources for completing a free accounting or bookkeeping course. There are even colleges and universities that now offer free recorded lectures, notes, and class videos.
I've tried to provide you with links to some excellent free accounting and bookkeeping training. Hopefully, by being selective and providing quality links to accounting and bookkeeping tutorials, books, courses, and lectures, you won't have to waste your time searching for accounting and bookkeeping help.
If you want to learn the basics of accounting and bookkeeping or actually learn how to do double entry bookkeeping you have found the right site.
Since I offer my own free bookkeeping and accounting courses on my own bookkeeping tutorial site Bean Counter, why would I recommend someone elses ? My answer is made up of three reasons.
• Different teachers or instructors use different methods and techniques for presenting accounting learning materials.
What a student might not grasp or understand from one teacher, they might easily grasp from another.
• There are other excellent accounting and bookkeeping training resources besides my own.
• Lastly, repetition. The more times you're exposed to something, the more likely it's going to sink in.

I've divided the accounting resources into categories to help you choose the accounting and bookkeeping help you're interested in.
