How to practice & master?

I am basically an engineer, just graduated from MBA. I do not have much experience using QB. I have started Proadvisor certification hoping to start my own bookkeeping business but don't have access to any company data as I am currently out of job & do not have access to any type of businesses where I can volunteer, since I moved to a new city. what is the best way to practice all the features of QB & still get the certification?

I am feeling little overwhelmed looking through QB. Please Help. 

Where do I stat? Any help in this regard is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Congrats on finishing up the MBA and getting ready to start a new career of some sort.  I recommend that as you are reading the course materials, run through the step by step in the sample company files. 


I would also suggest watching YouTube videos and running through the sample file to see and learn.  the more you watch and work, the more you will learn and retain.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
