A review of related literature to my study and researcher’s personal observation helped me in drawing up the questionnaire.  The items of the questionnaire were designed according to the problems that were investigated.

The problems of facilities was significant and this hindered mass participation of students.

The problems of inadequate number of trained and qualified accounting teachers incurred popularity of the subject in the schools.  The problems of large enrollment of students in the schools as a result of population explosion due to the introduction of Universal Primary Education (U.P.E.) made teaching of accounting ineffective in the schools because of unwieldiness of classes.

The problems of teaching aids and method were identified and this contributed to students uninterested in taking account in the school.

The implications and prospects of the above findings to teaching of account in secondary school were equally discussed.  Based on the findings, some useful recommendations on ways and means of improving the teaching of accounts in the schools were outlined.

The efficacy of education as a good tool f all – round progress in human experience has made many societies especially in Nigeria to set up promoting efficient and desirable learning.  At such institutions the main focus of both learners and teachers is the acquisition of worthwhile knowledge the impartation responsibility that really resolves round the teacher.

The purpose of teaching at any level therefore, is to produce certain desirable changes in the learners.  Such changes may be inform of acquiring intellectual skills, problem solving or the inculcation of desirable attitudes.

The Book – keeping which is the recording fo all transactions, which involves money or money’s worth in systematic order has been in existence for a long time.

According to “the Rapid Results Accounting Course” Number 551 page three, it was said that traders in the day of Ancient Babylon kept their records by writing on clay which was then backed in the sun.  It was also said in the book (rapid Result College Accounting Course No. 551 Pp. 3) that another brought to England by the Normans.  This was simply a piece of wood split into two parts and marked off in notches the notches representing the amount of goods sole or the amount owing between one party and another.  It was further explained in the book that modern way of book – keeping which spread to all over the world today began in Northern Italy in the late thirteenth century and this system introduces the principle of double entry.



Book – keeping is caused through trading that is buying and selling of goods either for cash or on credit.

Therefore in business there must be two people involved.  The name given to them are “Debtor and Creditor” so, for every transaction there must be two entries in the books of accounts and this two entries are known as “Debit and Credit”.



The purpose for which accounting records are kept in business may be listed as follow:

To show the trading results of the business that is whether it has made profit during a certain periods or whether losses have been incurred.

Proper accounting records greatly help safeguard the assets of a business against mis – appropriation and of deterrent against fraud, especially in large business.

The historic accounting may be used not to measure past profit but the adopted to show the management of the business which has been their most profit policies and also the efficiency of various operations.

It has been legally necessary for a long time for certain kind of business to keep proper accounting records.
