Our aim with the visual compendium was to create an interface between the novice accounting student and the highly qualified teacher and text book. The compendium doesn’t try to be a text book. Instead, it is designed to be an intermediary product that helps you ‘get into’ the topics laid out in your accounting text book.
Many students are disadvantaged when it comes to this. Maybe you don’t have any accounting experience. Or maybe you don’t have friends or relatives in the field, and this can make the task of learning accounting particularly daunting and soul destroying. Nobody should ever feel like that, especially when learning something.
