Hey, check it out, this is the first video of Chapter 1: The Accounting Equation. It's thrilling. You're going to love it!

Hello there, I'm Aaron. I designed and coded this site, recorded all these videos, and wrote all the practice problems. I got my Undergrad and Master's in Accounting and then went on to get my CPA License (exciting, right?). I worked at Ernst and Young for about a year but never really loved it, so I quit and became a programmer. I do love accounting though, and I love teaching it, which is why I made this site. Please feel free to reach out to me if you ever have any questions!

A couple of bits of info about the site:

  • I've recorded 96 videos, which means you get 936 minutes of accounting (lucky you)
  • There are 77 practice problems right now, and I'm always adding more.
  • Those problems & videos cover all 11 chapters of Acct 209.
  • You can email me anytime at [email protected].
