    Pretty easy. All in all, it's of moderate difficulty. The course material isn't very difficult, however the sheer VOLUME of course material is what's difficult. There's just alot of stuff you need to know.

    Also, unless you like the thought of doing the same thing everyday at work for the rest of your life, I wouldn't major in accounting as it's just a waste of your time.

    Majored in Accounting at Purdue, got job in industry. Fast forward 6 yrs absolutely bored with the career I chose. End of the day it's a job and pays the bills.

    Pretty much how accounting classes are, when given basic math homework the very last 2 questions were usually word problems, accounting, every problem is a word problem but 3 pages long. Not too difficult but combing through financial reports and cost analysis for fake companies is your thing then go for it.

    If your going this route just choose Actuary instead, pays more.

    Actuarial sciences is considerably more difficult than accounting, and it involves chiefly estimating stuff (like the amount of damages after a hurricane and ALOT of other stuff).

    You can easily get paid 6 figures as an actuary though, accountants rarely get paid 6 figures.

    Also, the work is much more varied than accounting and involves a lot of analysis. Whereas with accounting it's the same thing everyday and once you've got a good grasp on the concepts it's literally rote memorization and application.

    3 pages is a little much. However, he is right where pretty much EVERY problem is a word problem.

    BUT it's not gay and weird like those in math; you don't have to think out of the box too much. It's very straight up; just read the problems carefully.

    Financial, Taxation, Cost, Auditing - your four categories of of accounting, you'll end up specializing in one of these.

    Plus almost all go on to take the CPA exam, more and more seem to be getting a MBA to climb the corporate ladder differently, Phd is almost unheard of unless you really want to get into teaching accounting.

    Study hard, go to class, get decent grades and you'll find a job. Yeah it will be a lowly bitch work job at first but you put in your time you move up. It helped I live near Chicago so tons of opportunities to be had. I only made 36k my first yr, but to me coming from a $8/hr job was a kings ransom.

    srs advice: i have a degree in accounting, it was a complete waste of time and i do nothing with it now. I did enjoy cost and audit but good luck getting any of those jobs in the first few years out of school. depending on your program, it can anywhere between medium and very hard difficulty.


    dont do it unless you really enjoy it and think you will pass your cpa exam which is very hard. take the basic accounting classes, and an intermediate level class and if you dont really enjoy it at that point, then look away.

    ***** is trolling hard. If you can't get a job in accounting with your bachelor's and CPA, then you will have equally no luck finding a minimum wage job as you obviously are deaf, mute, and blind.

    it looks good on my resume, aside from that its useless for me. i went back to school, overloaded myself with MIS classes and got my 2nd degree in 6 months and led me to a great job right out of school where i dont use any accounting knowledge at all but the basics. for all the miscers asking for degree advice and dont know what they are doingi, i would go for MIS which leads to some very good entry level analyst jobs.

    Accountings major = better load up on dat der internships. Lettuce be reality, we have a lot of accounting majors around and the only way to ensure yourself a job is by showing your drive. My brother who is about to graduate in 3 months has already been guaranteed an $75k/year job because he interned at the company for a month last summer. I dunno what accountants usually make but 75k guaranteed right out of college sounds pretty good to me.

    also from what i know, the cpa is very hard, ive met people who have tried for years and not been able to pass

    i just didn't know what to major in and my dad told me to do it so i did.

    in my last year i started learning about actuarial science and realized it's what i wanted to do.


    I have a job now as an accountant i make 32,000 it's fcuking sh!t and i hate every single day of it. i dont have time or money to go back to school, and i'm extremely depressed about the fact that i may hate my life forever from now on.

    Dunno about america but accounting is a pretty good job to have in Canada provided you have the CA designation. You can eventually see a 6fig salary in time doing tax/auditing, obviously not right out of the gates but I think starting salary-wise it pays well. Most guys I know in accounting say the money is pretty decent but the job is boring as fuk.

    I was an engineering major for 2 years and got out and switched to accounting, wasn't for me at all. Respect to all you sciencebrahs out thar.

    I was thinking about majoring in accounting, but im rethinking it. The #1 thing i want is to enjoy my job. Money and stability are factors... but accountants dont get paid enough to overcome the monotony.

    General consensus seems to be how boring it is. My brother never comments on his day at work so I don't doubt it. Man, I'm glad I didn't decide to be an accountant. Salary doesn't mean sh*t if a 1/3 of your day is mind-numbing

    accountants dont get paid a lot either, atleast in the Us. thats just a myth. average accountant, prolly makes about the same or a little more than the poli sci major out of school. To the guys brother making 75k out of school seems unreal or is atleast the exception rather than the rule. of course, if you are brlliant and have your Cpa creds, then your salary will go up exponentially. but an intelligent individual will get paid well regardless of field so...
