In this course to me the most challenging area is learning , understanding and comprehending terms that are new to me. I state this as a fact because in my area of work as an assistant I do not deal with break-even points, cost-volume profit, and margin of safety ratio, fixed costs, variable cost and other terms used in the world of business. These are not only terms I have to familiarize myself with, knowing how to use them is also important. Using these terms in computing and calculating using formulas is also a challenge for me as well when using Excel. Reading and reviewing examples in the text is another challenging area trying to determine which example is beneficial and helpful in completing my individual assignments as well as the team assignments. I desire to learn more in every chapter we have covered because I feel there is never enough time spent to learn all the detailed information displayed that can someday be beneficial and helpful in my future career as a business owner. For example, in Excel I use my calculator to compute and calculate once I review and example that is similar to the scenario I need to complete in Excel I have not learn how to compute using the information within the program. I find that excel is easier if you are able to use the right formats to complete the calculations as well as using the formulas. Other challenging areas are preparing statement that companies uses for their businesses such as the Cost-Volume Profit Statement, income statement, and financial statements. I desire more understanding in all the area listed above for future reference.
