Students will be required to complete a project in this class that tests their knowledge & skills in managing the books for a small business using Peachtree Complete Accounting 2010. The assignments that you will be completing during Week 1 – 4 focus on specific Peachtree skills; however, this assignment allows you to use what you have learned about Peachtree to manage the books for a firm without ’step-by-step’ guidance, which is typical for assignments you will see in the workplace.
You will complete Project 1 (Susan Watson Accounting), which is located at the end of Chapter 11. As part of this project, you will generate the required reports as listed in the textbook as well as the Check Your Progress worksheet (which you will create in Excel) at the end of the project.
• If you fail to submit the “Check Your Progress” worksheet, you will lose 20%. Once you have submitted your project and it has been graded, you cannot resubmit it.
• You will need to generate the reports when requested per the project for you cannot assume that every report is generated at the end of the project.
You do not need to submit the reports as listed as “Optional”. All of the instructions for completing the project are listed in the textbook.
When you are done, you will submit one Excel workbook titled “ACCT251PeachProject” that contains an Excel worksheet for each of the reports required, as well as one worksheet that contains the Check Your Progress worksheet.
• Failure to submit one workbook that contains everything will result in a penalty of 15%. Once you have completed Peachtree Project, you will post your assignment to the Peachtree Project drop box. If you post it to the wrong drop box, your assignment will not be graded.
Hint: Here are the minimum number of reports that you will need to submit for this project:
