MASTER DOUBLE ENTRY BASICS IN 4.5 HOURS, NOT 8 WEEKS!
3 Lessons. 1.5 hours Per Day. Done in A Week.
You Might Have Seen Us On
Let’s get real, shall we?
Memorising double entries was a great idea (and convenient for a school teacher managing 36 of you), but not super realistic.
First, we all know that double entries in POA is more like algebra to math. it’s the foundation, relies on logic and requires practice.
And second I don’t know about you I hate memorising and the idea of memorising more and more difficult journal entries with
each new chapter just ain’t happening. Sorry.
But here’s what is possible…
No Memorisation? Seriously?
“But Caleb, surely I need to memorise at least some account names or formats? Or read some notes?”
In most cases, you don’t need it.
You’re much better off with a simplified list of new account names right beside you when you practice double entry basics for the first time.
I used to memorise journal entries as a struggling accounting undergraduate in NTU and it was soul-sucking.
I haven’t memorised a single journal entry since discovering the 3 Steps To Perfect Double Entry and it feels amazing.
No pressure to memorise. No stomach churn the night before any POA tests and exams.
Just a couple of minutes reviewing the mistakes and corrections from my double entry practices.
It was the best move I’ve made in years and since then, I’ve personally help more than 1,000+ new POA students move from confusion to clarity.
Want to know how we do it? How we get the right transaction down every time without memorising them?
Then keep reading 😎
ONLY 4.5 HOURS? SERIOUSLY?
Yes, but there’s a difference between 4.5 hours of focussed work and 4.5 hours of working through the most common challenges for beginning POA students.
Versus 24 hours. That’s 3 hours per week, over 8 weeks most schools take to “cover the ground” and teach double entry basics.
4.5 hours of solid conceptual grounding, clarifying doubts and applying your concepts on real exam questions.
Get 8 weeks worth of work done in a week. Decisively remove your overhanging confusion with double entries
Get it done, and then spend the rest of your time on the other chapters.
Or do whatever you want with the time saved memorising and worrying.
Just 1.5 hrs per day and in a week you unclog so much misunderstanding and confusion – and if you keep reading, you’ll see how.
Ok, this is where you separate the hype from the reality.
For most struggling POA students, the highest level of happiness is when you first break the F9 mark and reach B3-C6. That’s the sweet spot to keep one motivated and interested in the subject. It’s when you actually understand what’s going on or what your teacher is trying to say.
And please remember, it ain’t what you MEMORISED, it’s how you THINK.
Most teachers share the “best shortcuts” to remember double entries, not actual thinking skills that make sense.
Who cares if you memorised30+ new account names when these things just don’t make sense to you? And when questions don’t show up exactly the same way in your notes, you cannot answer?
Call me crazy, but I’d rather be able to immediately recognise what the examiners wants and give them examiner exactly that, regardless how they phrase the questions in the WA/exams.
With a strong double entry basics foundation – there’s no memorisation which means more results.
Applying the same thinking approach for other chapters means you can cover all 16 chapters in 16 weeks, instead of the arduous 18 months!
What Families Say
Before we continue, let’s please address the the most important thing. And that’s ‘How do I know this works?”
Look, if you want to see fake testimonials of how all students get A1s after this course, then please go elsewhere because I ain’t that POA teacher.
But if you want to see REAL STUDENTS and PARENTS who are REAL HAPPY with REAL ADVICE, then check this out…
YOUR ONE-PAGE DOUBLE ENTRY MASTERPIECE
Every time I look at my best performing students over the past 15 years, it comes back to one thing.
Since almost 90% of your syllabus requires double entry basics, it’s where your focus should be.
Below is a screen from a typical student who got the ‘ah-ha’ moment after the basics class and started getting top rankings every WA and exams there after – and it was understood almost entirely from the a systematic thinking process (and zero memorisation!)
In other words, it’s one subject right in the pocket for computing the L1R4/5.
SIMPLE. STRAIGHTFORWARD. NO STRESS
While most new POA students are running around like headless chickens trying to chase “the holy grail”, you can sit back and revise for a test with 1/4th of the time while actually scoring better.
It’s all about the right learning approach.
THE “TEACH LESS LEARN MORE” TREND
The #1 reason new POA students don’t excel in double entry basics is overwhelm.
While most teachers or tuition centres are teaching like it’s 2002 with heavy content, 3-hour weekly classes and tuition (including travelling time)… students are screaming for less.
They want selection of key points over bulk.
Quizzes over 1.5 hour tests
Checklists over webinars.
Targeted feedback and marking from tutor for improvement.
4.5 hour courses in 3 days over 24+hours in 62 days.
Some of my favourite learning models we’ll explore in the Double Entry Basics include…
- Connecting conceptual understanding of accounting elements in real life for a 15 year old (think EZ-LINK card, Bank Loan and Home Equity…)
- Side stepping new learner’s common misconceptions on financial periods using a simple finger method
- Focussing on making sense of accounting principles with logic. “If it doesn’t make sense, it’s wrong,” approach to applying accounting concepts.
“MEMORISING?” IT’S DYING
Memorising account names, formats and statements for exam success have been falling off a cliff because MOE has caught up with the need for training students with real-world, higher order thinking skills and developing students’ ability to recognise and discern patterns
Most of my successful students top their classes (ok, at least top 5) and they attribute it to understanding how to think about journal entries.
Can you memorise all the theories, journal entries and financial statement formats and do well? Yes, but you don’t have to.
In fact, the trend is identification and pattern recognition and we’ll explore these options in details.

Goodby memorisation. Hello freedom.
WHO IS THIS “DOUBLE ENTRY BASICS” FOR?
t’s for the butt-kickers, not the wannabes.
It’s for those who want to understand POA like the A-student who seem to be the only one in their class who ‘gets it.”
It’s for those who understand just one big ‘a-aha’ will be worth the price of this program hundreds of times over.
It’s for those who want a SIMPLE, 3 Step thinking approach that will get accurate journal entries without memorising to death.
The program is tactical AND strategic. By the end of the week together, you’ll know exactly what to do!
“BUT CALEB, WHAT ABOUT MY TEACHER’S METHOD?”
I’ll say this the most gently I know how – if your/your teacher’s method worked, we wouldn’t be here. 🙂
The biggest difference between me and most POA teachers is I’ve taught students from over 100+ schools, including poly, A levels (yes, there’s actually H2 accounting), undergrads and even adults. 15 years teaching this also means I’ve come across that many wrong ways double entries are taught/understood.
One of the biggest requirement when you come on board would be to leave these methods behind. We will need to help you un-learn and re-learn the basics. So it doesn’t matter if you are 14 year old who is completely new to accounting (it’s better actually without any baggage) or a 16 year old who is halfway through Sec 4 – the Double Entry Basics flat-out works.
It works because it’s based on 15 years track record across age groups and exam complexities.
Who’s this Caleb Guy?
Since I love speaking about myself in 3rd person, let’s talk.
Unlike most accounting teachers/educators who teach accounting for a living, Caleb’s been applying accounting and financial concepts since 2008 – mostly in investing, startups in accounting and community events for personal finance.
When Caleb taught his first POA student at age 23, he discovered that the study guides in the bookstores then (and still is in 2024) were dry and un-engaging. He decided to help his own students by publishing his own and since sold over 10,000 copies with raving reviews of how the summaries, exam tips and concise worked examples resonated with the students’ struggles.
For his applied accounting knowledge in real life and small businesses, he’s been featured in numerous interviews and articles in Yahoo!, Dollars and Sense, 1M65, Seedly, The Straits Times, Vulcan Post. He also sat on the boards of Spirit of Enterprise and TEDxSingapore, curating the best ideas and well deserving entrepreneurs to be platformed for recognition.
All of Caleb’s approach towards double entries come from 15 years IN THE TRENCHES building, creating, innovating and simplifying when necessary.
Zero fluff. And 100% real-world and tactical.
And if you haven’t heard of Caleb before, it’s probably because he spends most of his time behind the scenes helping small business owners and non-profits build online learning communities
Help. Please confirm this is not gonna be boring…
When 99% of my students say this is the best double entry class they’ve attended… because it actually make sense AND relate to them…
… it ain’t bragging because it’s true
