So everyone pretty much agrees that accounting on the boring scale from 1-10 is at negative 5. /thread
Some of the topics are actually very interesting. Its just that accounting professors always cram waay too much information down our throats for the amount of time in a semester. I think this is due to either a) the school wanting to prepare you for all CPA exam topics or b) in order for the accounting program to retain accreditation i think they have to cover x number of topics.
It is frustrating because classes become brutal and afterwards it is hard to retain alot of the information you were taught. AND it makes the classes pretty unenjoyable at times even when the subject matter is interesting, which trust me, is not always the case.
Frankly, I LOVED accounting in college. I found it both interesting and intellectually rewarding. What I didn't like was practicing accounting except for doing tax research and tax planning.
