The H2A (HowToAccount) system provides an exercise workbench to supplement all courses in financial accounting.

The emphasis of the H2A system is on providing a platform to do bookkeeping exercises, and it does this by emulating pencil and paper. This is the best path to a solid understanding of bookkeeping principles and practice, but using pencil and paper is very time consuming. The H2A approach has been found in a classroom context to be 10 times faster.

The roadmap for the H2A systems is,

System 1
