After you learn the bookkeeping and accounting rules from AccountingCoach.com I recommend that you learn QuickBooks. QuickBooks (from Intuit Inc.) is the leading software for small businesses in the United States. The website Lynda.com offers training videos on QuickBooks and other software (and more) starting at $25 per month. (We do not receive any affiliate revenue from Lynda.com, Intuit, or any other company.)
After you have mastered the material on AccountingCoach and have learned QuickBooks, strive to find a business, bookkeeping service or not-for-profit organization that will provide you with real-world, hands-on experience. Don't be too concerned about the starting pay since your value will come after you demonstrate your proficiency as a skilled bookkeeper.
