Its object is to set forth just what work is expected of the beginner and of the more experienced junior accountant.Books dealing with the theory of accounts and with the work of senior accountants are sufficiently numerous. The teaching in colleges and in special accounting classes is based upon the existing literature of the subject- and the product of the colleges and classes Is frequently better fitted to deal with the problems of the senior accountant than with the work that will be assigned on entering the practical field.We hope to set forth herein the drudgery, and sometimes the pettiness, that is inseparable from accounting, so that those contemplating taking up the work may do so with open eyes.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
