b. Most university accounting curricula cover a fairly standard range of topics: financial accounting, cost accounting, taxation, systems, and auditing. Think about the classes you’ve taken so far within your accounting program; develop a list of at least five topics for each class. Also, develop a list of other abilities (like writing, speaking, and use of information technology) that cut across the accounting classes you’ve had. Using a software tool of your choice (or one specified by your instructor), develop a system to organize and manage the items in the lists.

library, as shown in Table 15.1 , covering a variety of topics. Develop a knowledge management system based on the information provided. (Your instructor may ask you to use a relational database such as Microsoft Access to complete this task.)
