This module attempts to teach students how to build a trial balance in the accounting cycle. There is not much information in this module besides general descriptions of the steps involved in preparing the trial balance. There are no examples or illustrations that explain what would go in a trial balance. There are some links to outside sources that could be useful but a student would still need access to a book or a teacher to make sense of the information.
