I would like more detailed information about T accounts. I understand there is a debit and a credit. Would like more in depth learning on what typical accounting events affect each side and why. Thank you

I personally don't teach T-accounts because I find they confuse students more often than they help. However, I recognize that others will disagree. For me, I think of debits as positive numbers and credits as negative numbers and the two must balance out overall.

For those people who like T-Accounts, the left side represents debits, the right side credits. The entries on the left must equal the entries on the right. So its the same idea when you add up all the different T-accounts. Lesson 3 "posting entries" would cover the equivalent of a T-account discussion.
