  1. I am a senior and have not done any bookkeeping/accounting since the 60's. I now find myself in a place where I need to organize various financial situations, and I believe that I need to learn how to produce a spreadsheet in order to do that. My question is how involved in basic bookkeeping do you review? I feel like I might be starting from scratch. Can I just 'jump in' to your class, or should I take a bookkeeping/accounting class first? Thanks for you input. Linda Gray myoldmill@yahoo.com
