Is an Accounting Major really that hard?

Postby will shannon » Tue Feb 05, 2013 3:29 am

A relative of mine is in his 2nd year of college and has decided on an Accounting Major. She said that the first two Accounting classes were the hardest and the Professor made a point to tell the class that a good percent of the class would bomb out because they just could not handle it. The Professor said, "Some of you will be bored, some of you don't have the intellectual skills to handle the complexity of the subject and some of you will admit to yourself that the study of Accounting is just too complex."

In your experience is the study of Accounting in college really that hard?

In short, NO!

Think of it as an entirely new language that you have to learn from scratch. There's not an awful lot of 'difficult' maths, but it's the processes that you must get right.
