Here Are The Best Apps For Accounting


My Accounting Teacher by Jaxon Media

It is not always easy to get a handle on complex accounting functions without the help of supplemental materials that go beyond the classroom and textbook. My Accounting Teacher is an app that covers basic accounting concepts thoroughly by using definitions, examples and videos to help students understand their coursework. The first two modules contain approximately 45 minutes’ worth of materials to get students started, and additional modules can be purchased for 99 cents each.

Choosing to account as a major opens up many possibilities for students, but success in accounting courses requires the student to take a proactive role in their education. The apps outlined above are ideal to use as supplemental materials that help students succeed in their pursuit of an accounting degree.
