-- and my teeth started to itch. I suppose one shouldn't judge the difficulty of a subject based on the thickness of the textbook, but accounting and all its accompanying terms are an arena I've assiduously avoided until relatively recently. I've had computer networking textbooks that cast as large a shadow as this accounting book but I had some prior familiarity with that topic so I wasn't as intimidated. What I know about accounting could fit inside a baby pea. I think I'm in for a humbling ass-whooping -- or brain-whooping depending on which part of my body actually absorbs new information.
I hope the cd has some fun music I can listen to while struggling with concepts like transaction analysis and return on assets. I'm getting queasy just typing those phrases.
While I prepare myself with self-assuring reminders like, "I was the single parent of a teenager -- I can do this...", nevertheless, wish me luck!
