What skills do you need to become an Accountant?
I'm interested in going into accounting, but I'm not very good with alegbra II or other advanced math... I understand arithmatic a lot better though. I guess because it's something I can relate to? What skills (math related or not) would I need to become one? I hear it's pretty much basic math skills since a lot of the work is done by software programs. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Be prepared to spend much of your working life in a small room with a computer, doing BORING, repetive, calculations. From January thru mid-May, having kissed your wife and children good-bye, you can spend 18 hours, 7 days a week in your cage (called an office).
