From the Instructor:
Welcome to Principles of Accounting, probably one of the most useful courses of study for any student wanting to clarify their thinking about business and financial decision-making. BA211 is essential for those planning a career in accounting, but will be necessary for anyone that truly wants to understand how businesses measure their performance and financial condition.

Additionally, you will find that you are much better able to frame the issues bearing on personal financial decisions. Few courses can claim so many practical benefits.

Course Specific Requirements:
Course topics are summarized online and presented comprehensively in the textbook. After study and practice, students will submit assignments and complete quizzes and examinations online.

You will need the textbook and a subscription to the publisher's online supplement 'CONNECT.' A new textbook comes with the access code to the supplement.
