    I am taking an online course over the summer, and I don't know if I trust the answers this teacher is giving me.. She seems to be more worried on people cheating, and I am getting bad grades (for me, 82 and a 77.5 :() I just don't know if I can trust her and I think she said don't bother asking me to explain the questions, so I am pretty upset over the whole thing.

    So what I would like someone to do is look at the test and the answers and tell me really what the hell I am doing wrong. I have to teach myself, and before that hasn't been a problem. I don't know if I just don't get accounting or if I am just getting screwed.

    I am in my fourth year of accounting; what level are you on? Is this financial or managerial/cost? I can't say I'd be a huge help but I wouldn't mind giving it a try.

    it is just financial, 201.. I am going into PR/HR so I don't really need to know this, however this online thing doesn't really help me, its kind of annoying because it just seems like accounting goes way out of the way to do simple things. haha

    I'm going into my 3rd year as an Accounting major; more info would be great. Your teacher definitely should be taking the time to explain things, accounting can be very difficult with a poor teacher.

    Yep, accounting is the art of replacing a guy with a checkbook and a pen with a department staffed by 40 people.

    a few basic tips

    1) think of people as assets you can toss like tissue paper
    2) learn the art of cooking, books, that is
    3) chant to yourself ten times daily, "i have no conscience, i have no conscience"
    4) regularly beat animals and people smaller than you

    i hope this helps

    Except for the fact that a guy with a check book has little knowledge of preparing financial statements for share holders or managers, probably knows very little about how he or his corporation are being taxed, and probably wouldn't know how to expense the $5000 Mac Pro that he just wrote a check for.

    I'm just glad tax laws and audits get more complicated by the year and less and less people are pursuing accounting while the demand increases. Can you say increased salary?

    You might not be glad when you are working 90 hours per week with those tax laws and audits.

    my buddy in high school had a dad that was vp of a major grocery chain and he made good money in silicon valley

    but his wife made more money than him from her bedroom office in just three months during tax season as an enrolled agent, but those hours in that period were totally insane

    there were days she worked 20 hours

    I need to email the test to anyone who is willing to help, Thanks everyone! and PM me your emails, because the test is in word document form.

    Thanks again to everyone!
