I too have looked at the Lifepacs Accounting program and conclude that they are a good beginning for learning bookkeeping. They do not cover what a one year high school accounting class would/should cover. For example they don't discuss cost of goods sold or inventory.

I used an old Century 21 text to teach my daughter accounting two years ago. Then I showed her Quickbooks and she did the bookkeeping for one of my small business clients. She liked it and is now studying accounting in college. She is only half way through her first semester and has covered just about everything she learned while studying accounting in high school. They go at quite a fast pace in college.

You might also look at Professor in a Box Financial Accounting program. It looks more thorough than Lifepacs and a good deal pricier too.

I'm planning on teaching an accounting class at my homeschool co-op next year and I'll probably use a newer Century 21 text.
