You don’t have to be a serious dummy to buy Getting Started in Bookkeeping for Dummies by Veechi Curtis. But if you want to fast-track your understanding on how bookkeeping works as a beginner, this book is a sure thing to start.
Getting Started in Bookkeeping for Dummies is part of a bookkeeping bundle accompanying MYOB Software for Dummies. Though, we want to stress out that this book should have been a complement together with Curtis’ Bookkeeping for Dummies.
Bookkeeping Manual for Australians
The beginner’s guide book is a straightforward knowledge source on getting started with keeping and managing finances no matter how big or small a business is. It’s purposely created for the Australian market and is also available for shipment to New Zealand.
