Being almost 68 years of age and having had minimal training and experience, primarily in bookkeeping- no accounting, I found this course to be very informative, stimulating, and challenging. The information presented covered a wide spectrum of business activities, thus broadening my appreciation for the various bookkeeping-accounting principles and their respective applications. My self-worth has increased dramatically. I look forward to doing work in this field to supplement my retirement income. Later on, I anticipate becoming an independent operator. Age is not a deterrent but an asset.
