In this course, students will be introduced to the Sage 50 Premium Accounting 2013 accounting software, using a hands-on approach with simulated source documents. Students will work step-by-step through the procedures for setting up each module, followed by transaction by transaction processing covering the concepts and techniques needed to use the software. As the student works through the lessons, they are given ample opportunity to explore and practice these techniques throughout the course. This course consists of ten lessons, a lab exercise, and a final exam. The lesson tasks use files created for fictitious companies. At the end of most lessons, students are presented with questions for review to reinforce learning. The workbook also contains unguided tasks that will help prepare students for the final exam.
