This introduction to bookkeeping for beginning business students demonstrates the use of financial statements, the ledger, the two-column general journal, and other journals normally used in business operations. This book offers helpful instruction both to business students and owners of small businesses. True-to-life bookkeeping problems with answers are presented throughout the text. Charts, graphs, diagrams, instructive line illustrations, and where appropriate, amusing cartoons help to make learning E-Z. Barron's E-Z books are self-teaching manuals focused to improve students' grades across a wide array of academic and practical subjects. For most subjects, the skill level ranges between senior high school and college standards. E-Z books review their subjects in detail, using both short quizzes and longer tests to help students gauge their learning progress. All exercises and tests come with answers. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color as an easy reference aid.
