QuickBooks 101
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   1/1/2007
This is the perfect class for anyone who knows nothing about QuickBooks, and needs to learn how to set up their company fast. This is the foundation class for QuickBooks.

Quicken and QuickBooks Comment from Dietrich Hairston @ 2/26/2013
Hi Richard
I took your course in QB already and would love to know when you are going to put out and updated version of QB.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Hopefully this spring. I'm just so busy now with the MS Office classes that I haven't had much time for anything else. But QB is high on my list.

Quicken and QuickBooks Comment from JenniferThompson @ 9/6/2012
what is difference between Quicken and QuickBooks? Does it matter which one is used?

Reply from Richard Rost:

Quicken is more for PERSONAL finance, whereas QuickBooks is designed for businesses. You could use one or the other for both, but I don't recommend it.

QuickBooks 101 Comment from Joseph Gibson @ 4/25/2011
I am hoping that you will soon put out your latest version of QuickBooks whether it is 2010 or 2011 and of course with text and video. The full course would be ideal.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Yes, this is on my to-do list. It's also on the WAITING LIST, although it doesn't have as many votes as a lot of other subjects. Still, I am hoping to update my QB course soon. The current one is from 2002, I believe.

QB 2010 Comment from Josef @ 1/17/2011
Im very interested in learning basics of QB as Im getting ready to take a job as a bookkeeper and eventualy as accountant, please tell me which courses to start with, and if its worthwhile for me to start with your lesson/s on previous QB versions and you will then update me when you have the more current versions

Reply from Richard Rost:

My current QB class is old (2002). If you want to pick up a copy of it, it does explain setting up the company file and some other basics that haven't changed much. Once my new QB2010 (or 2011) course comes out this spring, you'll get a free copy.

Is there a manual or handbook to accompany Quickbooks101 and if so how do I get it? Mary

Reply from Richard Rost:

Not at this time, sorry. We'll be writing a handbook when we update the Quickbooks course for 2011.

I don't have an exact date, but as soon as I finish the Office 2007 courses, I'll be working on other materials, including QuickBooks.

If you are a sole proprietor, then your legal name is usually either YOUR name or your DBA name - usually just your name.

If you're a corporation or LLC, then it's the corporation's name.

BUT... again, I'm not a "business" expert. I'm a computer expert. You should consult your accountant and/or attorney before making this decision. This is more of a business question.

Updated Quickbooks Comment from Richard Rost @ 11/14/2008
Jacqueline, they come out with a new version of QuickBooks almost every year. Do you HAVE to upgrade to the latest version? Absolutely not. I have clients who are still using QB 2001. If it has the features you need, stick with it. Just like people still use Microsoft Office 2000, there's no compelling need to upgrade until QuickBooks adds a feature you want.

Comment from Richard Rost @ 4/2/2008
I don't have a copy of QuickBooks Pro 2008 yet, but from what I see on their web site, YES, the "Update Agent" is the same thing as the old "Delivery Agent." It's basically a program that sits in the background checking Intuit's web site to see if there are any updates. You don't HAVE to delete it, but of course every little program sitting in the background running does take up SOME system resources. Yes, even my little UpdateNotice software does too.

I have QuickBooks Pro 2008.  When I look on Start, I see QuickBooks Update Agent.  Is that the same as QuickBooks 2002 Delivery Agent?  I hesitate to delete it, but it sounds the same.
