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 102 videos, which means you get 1005 minutes of accounting (lucky you)
  • There are 79 practice problems right now, and I'm always adding more.
  • Those problems & videos cover all 12 chapters of Acct 229.
  • You can email me anytime at [email protected].

It was beautifully simple and simply beautiful how you made it seem like a puzzle and that I should not be intimidated by financial accounting. Hopefully this final goes well, and I'm watching your videos right now to get a little review before hand.
