From the Instructor:
BA228 is an introduction to QuickBooks, the most popular accounting software for small business. The focus of the course is very practical...learning the most commonly used features of the software.

By actually working through tutorials and exercises, you will create business documents, record transactions and generate the many useful accounting reports essential for management planning and control.

This course is for both traditional degree seeking students and those needing to enhance their skills. There are no accounting prerequisites, however, students with some previous accounting coursework will benefit much more; they will have learned the conceptual framework needed to understand the end-purpose of QuickBooks processes.

Course Specific Requirements:
Students will submit assignments, do weekly quizzes and complete two short examinations, all online.

Textbook Package: 'Computer Accounting with QuickBooks 2015,' Donna Kay, McGraw-Hill, 17th edition.

Purchased NEW, the text includes a 140 day trial version of the software, QuickBooks Accountant 2015 (for Windows), so a separate purchase of software is unnecessary.

Textbooks are available at PCC bookstores. Don't delay your purchase; PCC Bookstore inventories are limited...get yours before they run out.
