Question: Im almost at my ropes end on picking a major. I only have 3-4 classes left to go before I go into my majors. Ive been thinking about accounting, im not a really good student, but have always seen myself leaning towards being an accountant. I plan on retaking Acct 2101 and 2102, Ive already taken them but wasn't really serious about being an accountant until recently,b/c struggled to figure out if I was going to major in finance. Which class is more important to know before taking the higher level courses of accounting? Can I get away with learning 2102 and taking another next level course and the following semester along with 2101? Any advice or recommendations on experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance? ANY advice. thumbs up too. Its that important too me. please. thank you. also any advice on some direction or things I should consider or look into more to learn about the things I would need to know that are important before I set my goal on acct? Edit, thanks girlygurl, I really appreciate the advice. I would also appreciate anyone who had any advice on 2101 and 2102 acct courses. Theyre the basic accounting courses that you take for your business degree portion that are required, right before you begin your actual major coarses. Thanks again girlygurl. :-)

I just graduated with an accounting and finance degree, and will strongly recomend that you lean towards accounting. I am not sure what class Acct 2101 and 2102 is. Are the Intermediate Acct I and II? If so they are tough classes, but if you can get through intermediate accounting, you will survive the major, infact it is a down hill slope. Having two majors, I tried to get jobs as a finance major. I am not sure if it is because of my school, but it was very hard to find finance related job, and the pay compared to accounting was 9K less. Now, with accounting, I had a internship by mid junior year, that paid a lot of money. The internship landed me a full time job, in the beggining of my senior year. So while other majors were looking and continue to look for a job, I had one secured. Keep in mind that as an accountin major, I think you have to work hard. With my acct degree, I can do a lot of the work that finance majors do, infact that is why it was easier for me to take finance courses, but I dont think that the finance major can do wht accountants do. Let me conclude by saying, do what you will enjoy doing. If you enjoy finance then go for that. But there are a lot of rewards as an accountant, and it opens up a lot of opportunity. Good luck

Nelle Originally Answered: Advice for AP Classes?
It depends on the AP course. I began AP World History my sophomore year, and I felt like the workload was manageable and fairly concise, in contrast to all the "you'll-be-spending-hours-at-a-time-on-t... stories that I'd heard. I know that we were recommended to buy The Princeton Review's AP exam guides-- there's one for each AP course, I believe-- and those can be a huge help. You can use them to go back or go ahead with the lessons, to review and preview the chunks of information as needed. Do your assignments, study often, and listen well, and you shouldn't have much of a problem in the class itself. The AP exam is the only truly nerve-wracking part of the deal.

AP classes are meant to mimic college classes, but in reality they're not as hard as you think. In fact, AP English is one of the easier AP courses, depending on your teacher. Just make sure you study well in advance for tests, because you won't get mich homework regularly. Also, get a study book for both. I recommend Kaplan or Princeton Review study guides. In the end though, it all comes down to what the teacher decides to do with the claas. AP gives teachers a lot more freedom compared to normal curriculums, so the best way to know for sure what to do to be prepared is to talk to someone at your school who's taken the class before, with the same teacher.

The AP Language and Composition test really depends on your English reading and writing abilities. People who aren't very good at English find it impossible to write three essays in two hours (allowing for only 40 minutes per essay), whereas some people just do it naturally. Also, if you have studied for the SAT Reasoning before, you might be a little comfortable with the MC because they are similar to the CR section.

Intermediate accounting is the key class for accounting majors. If you feel weak in this class, take it over. Auditing builds on the information in intermediate accounting, so your career also builds on the same course.

I took AP Lang this year. You read some books that are honestly boring at first, but you get used to the genres and start to appreciate them. Also, youre going to write essays like every other week. These can kill your grade, as AP teachers are strict graders. So make sure you study their criticism on your essays so that you can improve. A lot of my smartest friends struggled a bit in APUSH. It's very time consuming, and again, the essays are graded harshly. Focus on improving. AP teachers are harsh as to give you a taste of a college course and to prepare you for AP exams. You should be fine in physics, especially regular physics. As for school supplies, just get the normal; calculator (scientific), pencils, paper, notebook, etc. if these classes require anything special, they'll tell you on the first day.

I suggest you bring lots of pencils! (If you like using mechanic pencils, also bring wooden pencils for those who like to borrow pencils) Store some in your locker for if you ever lose your other pencils. Carry 2 with you daily. Also bring pens and erasers. You should bring those multi-folders or a binder. You should also, ALWAYS, carry line and blank paper. I can't really give you advice for your classes since i'm only in 7th grade but i hope this helps! Sorry if it didnt! Good Luck!
