QuickBooks® Pro 2002: A Complete Course is a comprehensive instructional learning resource. This text has been designed to respond to the growing trend toward adopting Windows applications and computerizing accounting systems. As a result of this trend, the text provides training using Windows® XP and the popular QuickBooks® Pro 2002 accounting program. The text was written using Windows XP and QuickBooks® Pro 2002 but may be used with Windows 95/98/2000 and QuickBooks® Basic or Premier versions.


QuickBooks® Pro 2002: A Complete Course is designed to present accounting concepts and their relationship to QuickBooks® Pro 2002. In addition to accounting concepts, students use a fictitious company and receive hands-on training in the use of QuickBooks® Pro 2002 within each chapter. At the end of every chapter, the concepts and applications learned are reinforced by the completion of true/false, multiple-choice, fill-in, and essay questions plus an application problem using a different fictitious company. At the end of the text, there is a comprehensive practice set that utilizes all the major concepts and transactions presented within the textbook.

The text introduces students to the computer, Windows, and QuickBooks accounting for a service business, a merchandising business, payroll, and company setup for QuickBooks. The appendices review Windows and disk duplication; QuickBooks Integration using Word and Excel; QuickBooks Features including QuickBooks Notes, Time Tracking, Job Costing, and Price Levels; and QuickBooks Online including online updates, payroll services, downloading a trial version of the software, online banking and payments, personalized web sites and domain names, credit check services, fax services, merchant services, online billing, online credit card billing, online backup services, and direct deposit.


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.

Accounting concepts and the use of QuickBooks® Pro 2002 are reinforced throughout the text with the use of graphics that show completed transactions, reports, and QuickBooks screens. The text helps students transition from textbook transaction analysis to "real-world" transaction analysis.

The text provides extensive assignment material in the form of tutorials, end-of-chapter questions (true/false, multiple-choice, fill-in, and essay), practice sets for each section, and a comprehensive practice set.

Students develop confidence in recording business transactions using an up-to-date commercial software program designed for small to mid-size businesses. With thorough exploration of the program in the text, students should be able to use QuickBooks® Pro 2002 in a "real world service business" at the completion of the textbook training.

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.
