Question from Hillary
Hi, does this class deal with reconciliation? I work for a very small company and am in charge of the books but have had no formal training. QBO, chart of accounts, vendors etc. is all set up. I am mainly concerned with fixing errors, learning how to properly enter all transactions and being able to reconcile correctly. Does this class cover those topics (especially reconciliation)? Thank you!
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! Unfortunately, reconciliation isn't one of the major topics for this course, but it is helpful for those who would like to learn how to create an efficient filing system to track your finance, difference between an income statement and balance sheet, the different types of company formations, how transactions are recorded in a double entry bookkeeping system and what exactly are debits and credits, among many others.
Answer from Anonymous
I think this course has to include reconciliation. When you're balancing the checkbook you need to reconcile in order to ensure it's balanced. It seems that reconciliation, although not specifically mentioned, will be taught as there is a course topic on balancing the checkbook.

I learned a lot from this class. Overall this is a great class. A problem is that the teacher is not native English speaker and he has an accent. Since I am not a native speaker, I had a slight difficulty to understand his English. .

The class was over 3 hour before 6. The teacher didn’t answer the questions and if he did it he did it after laugh a little bit and when I asked him something for first time and he didn’t I asked him why? He said that if I wanted him to answer I should pay HIM particularly. ??????? Such a expensive course. And actually I traveled 2 hours every sunday to can make it to receive that answer. Disrespectful and very arrogant
