After having majored in Commercial Education and having taught bookkeeping for three years, the writer is attempting to organize his past experiences, knowledge, and material into a concise form. It is hoped that by so doing it will be possible to make a course of study in beginning bookkeeping interesting and beneficial to his students and help the teacher do a better job of teaching.

The writer realizes that he has three types of students – (1) those who plan to continue their education; (2) those who do not plan to continue their education and feel a need for a vocation or avocation; and (3) those who have no interest, but take the subject for some particular reason. The writer hopes to be able to meet the needs of each group of students mentioned.
