Learning Basic Accounting from Home

I'm looking for inexpensive or free resources for learning basic small business accounting from home.

In case it's helpful: I'll most likely be working in QuickBooks.

I've found useful stuff on reallifeaccounting.com. The guy's selling books and some sort of online course but the right Google search reveals a plethora of sample content he has posted.

Have you looked at coursera? They have a couple of free financial/accounting classes.

There are also Youtube videos on QuickBooks available that show you how to do certain things.

accounting accounting, or just how to use QuickBooks? if the former, there are always cheap or free accounting texts around.

Small Business Accounting is good but I would start with Bookkeeping for Dummies, so so clear and sensible. Once you've worked through that, you can breeze through the SBA book.
