Computerised Book-Keeping

This book is suitable for those preparing for the examinations of ICB, AAT, IAB, OCR, AQA and all other courses in computerised accounting. Learning computerised book-keeping skills is very different from manual accounting. It can seem more like learning computer studies than book-keeping, and it is often difficult to connect it with what may have been previously learned in manual book-keeping. In this book Dr Marshall resolves this problem with the same skill and insight that made his book on manual book-keeping, Mastering Book-keeping, so useful to readers over the years. Deliberately constructing a clear and continuous bridge between the methods so that the student never loses sight of the double entry concept, he presents the material in a way that makes computerised book-keeping clear and easy to understand.
