Maybe I am biased (pursuing accounting degree) but I say get the AS in accounting. It is true- book keeping doesn’t need it- however with it, you make yourself more valuable and can apply to jobs that may require it (which essentially means more $$).

@armychica06: What she said. I have a BS in Finance and a MS in Accounting and am currently working as the only accountant for a small business while I save up money to review for the CPA exam. I’d go for an accounting degree. The things you learn while getting an accounting degree are valuable and can make YOU more valuable as an employee which can equal more money in the long run.

@armychica06: I totally agree. I have my BA in Accounting and though I’m not in that field any longer, it goes a long way for potential employers to see the schooling in accounting rather than just a few bookkeeping classes under your belt. I think you should start by getting your AS in Accounting, then a few bookkeeping classes…then, if you’re ambitious enough, go for the BA/BS in Accounting!
