    I am interested in becoming an accountant, but can't go to school yet. Is there anything I can read or learn to get a head start? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    You must not go to school before you can get a bookkeeping job but you however need to have some sorts of education before you can become an accountant. There are numerous resources out there that you can leverage on to learn accounting right from the comfort of your bed. Youtube if a free online resource where you can learn virtually anything that interests you.
    Also, you can register with ACCA and study at your pace.
    Cheers!

    how is the global acceptability of ACCA? Will it be wise to complete it after graduation?

    Advice

    I'm glad someone wants to be an Accountant. I'm an Accountant myself for about 8 years now and I love my job. I know this post was months ago but I hope you go to school soon. Here's a good site where you can learn more about Accounting and how to pass the CPA Exam - search for Another71 site on google.

    Good Luck! :)

    Same here. I bought basic accounting books and used to self study.
