"I retired a few months ago from a law enforcement career in order to spend more time with my family. Leading up to my retirement, I explored different secondary career options that would be stimulating and rewarding, but also give me the flexibility I wanted. I learned about bookkeeping and really developed an interest for it. From the beginning, I saw AccountingCoach and Mr. Averkamp being highly and widely praised. After taking a few courses, I made the decision to become a bookkeeper. I became a PRO user because I believed it was important to keep track of my studies and use as many resources as possible to absorb the information. I like how the material is presented in a variety of ways (reading, video, flashcards) that reinforce my learning. I also feel it is presented at a good level, in a way that makes it fairly easy to understand without oversimplifying it. AccountingCoach has helped me understand proper accounting skills that can be applied regardless of the accounting system or software I use. I think this is great because although there is a lot of software out there that simplifies bookkeeping, I don't think it should be used without having a thorough understanding of the processes and knowing whether it's working properly. I definitely believe AccountingCoach has helped me become a better, more reliable, and more intelligent bookkeeper." - Mark P.
