Learning Sage 50 Accounting, 18th edition, has become a cornerstone in the learning and understanding of the Sage 50 Premium Accounting Software. Aligned with the actual software program, this resource provides step-by-step instructions to help students build a foundation of knowledge. The modular approach teaches one function per module, allowing for a deeper understanding before moving on. As they move through the modules, students build a foundation of knowledge, becoming more proficient and confident in their abilities. This is often a resource that students keep as a reference guide after their course is complete.


  • Each chapter parallels a module in the actual software program.
  • This resource includes coverage of month-end and year-end processing, project costing, account reconciliation, and foreign currency.
  • The topic of perpetual inventory is used throughout, reflecting current accounting practices. We have maintained coverage of periodic inventory systems in our online resources.
  • After each chapter, challenge exercises are provided to help students assess what they have learned and where they need to spend time reviewing.
  • We provide step-by-step instructions throughout the entire text to help students in their learning.
  • Screenshots from the actual software program are included throughout to help guide students through important steps.
