She already has a basic understanding of money management, responsible spending and saving, but my 8th grader is wanting to know more about the business side and the actual concepts and fundamental knowledge of accounting processes. Figured this would be a good starter for introducing the subject.

I want my daughter to take accounting as an elective in one of her high school years. I also plan on using it as well before I enroll in online college accounting.

I had the help of your staff. I started a chat online and told Ruth what I was looking for. She was able to narrow down the items and suggested a couple of items. I found this extremely helpful!

I work with QB at my job but do not have a complete understanding of accounting. I used this product when I homeschooled but would now like to take the course myself.

How long does this program take to do? More than 1 year?
Stacy on Apr 3, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This curriculum comes with a 273 page Teacher's Guide and 1-10 Student Book Units. Units 1-5 have a combined total of 284 pages of reading/studying, beginning balance sheets, charts, general ledger accounts, etc. Units 6-10 have a combined total of 244 pages. My daughter is completing it over 18 weeks/1 semester. She's using it as an elective. I'm happy with the open-and-go concept; the materials are in consumable workbook form. She's doing an investing course for second semester so I only wanted to spend 90 days completing her Accounting I course. You could do it over one year if you prefer; definitely your choice. Hope that helps.
Is there a full practice set included? ie: a month worth of transactions that need to be t-accounted and journaled and a closing process that includes creating financial statements? My son already passed an intro accounting class, but it was more theory than practical. I want him to also do the practice side...
A shopper on Aug 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I bought this course for my daughter and think that it will help her to understand the flow of financial information as it relates to financial statements and accounts. There are some journal entries but not a ton. Students spend quite a bit of time using T-accounts and learn about statement financial information will impact. It does do a nice job empahsizing "balances." I will also say this, not all college accounting courses heavily focus on journal entries either. I have taught college accounting and finance for years and unless you are looking to become an accountant, you aren't going to dive that deep into entries. But this class does a great job of having students move financial information around, they understand the closing process, they create trial balances, and they create financial statements. They also learn about payroll taxes (this is not typically included in general financial accounting classes in college - it would be it's own class). Over all, it is a solid course with lots of hands on practice. The kids get to interact with a decent amount of financial data.
Would this count as a full math credit?
A shopper on May 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe this course would be better categorized as a business math course. In terms of curriculum, an elective. It offers, however, good practice for essentially basic math principles. God bless.
Is there any religious content in this curriculum? Meaning are there religious statements on the majority of pages? We're secular homeschoolers and don't usually use Alpha Omega products. With that said, it does sound like a solid intro to accounting. Thank-you for any/all information.
A shopper on Jul 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We're headed to Unit 3 and I've seen no religious content. We're secular homeschoolers so no religious content is wonderful. Thank-you RRC for carrying secular materials as well as Christian.

Solid Volume but Layout Could be Improved
When my 7th grade daughter asked me to teach her accounting, I decided on using this course rather than a college level text book (I teach both Accounting and Finance classes at the collegiate level for both undergraduate and graduate level students and I own several).

The volume of information included in the program is very applicable and appropriate. I wish that the TM actually provided a schedule for you follow rather than having you deciding up your daily schedule. Each Lifepac is structured to present approximately 2-3 topic in accounting per pac. The teaching is done well enough in the text but I find many of the same struggles that I find in other textbooks. Some topics aren't covered deep enough and should be expounded upon, especially considering they begin using them quick and expect the student to understand as they are moving forward (for example, when they introduce the topic of accrual accounting - there are several areas in this concept but the areas are briefly introduced and more of a lump sum. The accrual requirement is foundational to accounting). But the packs provides a lot of opportunity to practice each topic - both in the text but especially at the end.

One area that is taught well is that they do introduce accounting transactions using the horizontal method. This is a new way of teaching accounting in some college level texts. They also introduce journal entries and show how they apply to the horizontal method. I do wish though with the horizontal method that they would have expanded and included more than just the balance sheet. For example, you can show how the income statement and cash flow statement correlate with the balance sheet if you include column for those items in the transaction process.

My only really "complaint" in the curriculum is that they teach the accounting equation as assets = liability + capital. The word "capital" isn't a good word to use. Typically students learn that assets = liabilities + equity in all accounting classes. Yes, the word capital and equity are somewhat interchangeable here, however, you can also refer to assets as "capital" when they are long term or if you are trying to raise "capital," that means you are trying raise funding or cash. So I will be point this out my child as we move through the material so that she knows that capital = equity for this course.

But the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the organization of the material. Rather than having several culminating activities at the end of the pack, I would have rather have liked those activities to have been integrated into the "learning" portion of the pack. Those activities should be understood before you take any tests. And I am guessing that I will need to put in a bit more "planning" than I had originally thought to make sure that we cover some of the material in a better flow than what they provided. In addition, if you have a child that easily learns on their own from printed material, I think this class will be fine for them. But if you have a child that doesn't, this is not a good class for them. I had already planned to assist my child in this material because she is younger but I think most parents will find themselves assisting their children as well. If you aren't an accountant or have had no book keeping experience, I think there is a learning curve and personally think that you would may be better off with a program that includes videos as part of the teaching.

This is a very good introduction to accounting My 9th grade daughter had only one complaint The Lifepacs seem to jump around You may study a subject in Lifepac #1 and not see it again until Lifepac#3 sometimes causing confusion Hits the basics Alpha Omega really needs an Accounting II course to continue a little more in depth
