Throughout the text, emphasis has been placed on the use of QuickBooks' innovative approach to recording accounting transactions based on a business form rather than using the traditional journal format. This approach, however, has been correlated to traditional accounting through adjusting entries, end-of-period procedures, and use of the "behind the scenes" journal.
Unlike many other computerized accounting programs, QuickBooks is user-friendly when corrections and adjustments are required. The ease of corrections and the ramifications as a result of this ease are explored thoroughly.

Students will explore and use many of the features of QuickBooks as it pertains to a service business, including recording transactions, preparing a multitude of reports, closing an accounting period, compiling charts and graphs, and preparing the payroll.
QuickBooks ® Pro 2002: An Introduction is designed for a one-term course in microcomputer accounting, a short course in microcomputer accounting, or for use in any accounting course requiring introductory work on an integrated computerized accounting package.
