I bought two books today, on accounting and audit. I've known nothing about these two subjects, so they both in Chinese. My friend said that it's very difficult to self learn accounting. I will try and see what i can make. Just leave behind all the past and try to learn some knowledge.

Oh wow. That is quite a task that you've set yourself for. But then again, as long as you have lots of books on the topics that you want to read then given time, effort, and determination I believe that you can learn those topics better than those who were taught in classrooms.^_^ Im not saying that its going to be easy, cause I know for sure that its not (had an accounting class in high school and some in college, took me years to learn the basics.LOL!) but if you're really determined you'll be an expert in no time. Goodluck and have fun!^_^

Congratulations to you for trying something new! Are you trying to learn personal accounting for yourself? Or are you trying to learn business accounting in order to find a job in that field? People can teach themselves, although it may be difficult to prove to employers that you are qualified on the basis of self-study. (Many employers look for a degree or some evidence of proficiency; would this also be the same in China?) One of the most enjoyable methods of personal accounting that I have seen is that articulated by Robert Kiyosaki in his book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad. He draws boxes for income and expenses. He explains that assets are things that put money into your pocket. He explains that liabilities are things that take money out of your pocket. The key is to get more things that put money into your pocket than things that take money out of your pocket. Cheers!

Hey, i want to learn business accounting to find a better job, and i think this will benefit persoal accounting too. Nowadays, more and more people try to get certificate to prove their abilities, not because we love to do this, it's just employers tend to care about these. I've heard about Rich Dad, Poor Dad, but i haven't seen it, it's very famous i know that. Thanks for sharing. Good luck

I am not sure how difficult it is to learn accounting nor how different it it is in the Chinese Culture as opposed to our American Culture. I wish you luck on learning as much as you can about the subject, but don't give up! Try more ways then just reading, maybe buying c.d.'s on it, or if you can find a tutor that is fairly cheap, maybe through the library or public learning!

Thanks, i bought Chinese book because Chinese's my mother language, so it might be easier to get understood, otherwise i have to cope with language. I don't know how difficult it is myself as i've just turned the first page on and written my name. Learning accounting may do good to my job, nowadays it's never too old to learn and all the time we have to learn, otherwise, we'd fall behind. Thanks for encouragement, i won't give up. Next time if i feel depressed and difficult to move on, just log on mylot to get some positive encouragement, huh? Thank you so much for your support. If i am busy studying, i won't think too much about the past, in that case i'd be happier. Like killing the two birds with one stone, learn things and forget unhappiness. Good choice from my point of view. Good luck, extend my best wishes to your fiance
