Accounting is a subject that is easily understood. When you know the principle of it, it is not hard. In my opinion, the key to learn accounting is to make friend with it. Try to understand how it works and ‘talk’ with it frequently. What I mean talk is to practice. Everyone knows, practice makes perfect.
Accounting is a well-known profession. It acts as an irreplaceable role in every single firm, especially the big one. Without an accounting department in big company, it will not be able to manage things well. It cannot realize problem existed since it never not analyze figure of the company, like profit and cash movement. As a result, the business performance will not be able to improve or even get worse and beaten by competitors.
