The search of the phrase ACCOUNTING EDUCATION on Google.com resulted in 2,520,000 hits. The first hit was accountingeductaion.com, which was previously summarized. Another hit was http://www.accounting-education.com/,which is very similar to the previous link, but not the same one. This site includes information on quarterly CPA exams which the student or CPA can print and complete, and then send to the company for grading. The site also includes information on the products the company offers, contact information, frequently asked questions about their services, an area where the current tests can be downloaded, and an order page where products can be ordered and paid for online. Orders can be completed online, by a toll-free 800 number, by fax, or by mail. The different CPA exams that the company provides are from the Journal of Accountancy, Strategic Finance, and Practical Accountant, and they offer exams for the last nine quarters. The company which operates the web site is located in Greensboro, NC.
Another hit is the Henry B. Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa's accounting program. http://www.biz.uiowa.edu/accounting/outreach/mcglad.html. The site includes information on the program, and a listing of the college board members. There is also a link to a web cast from November 2002, which highlights recent accounting scandals. The home page also contains a short history of the program, and upcoming seminars and events. There are links to the mission of the department, working papers for students and professors, information on the Sidney G. Winter Lecture Series, (which is outdated, it occurred in September 2002), and educational resources which include links to other accounting information and agencies, and a featured question which a professor answers.
These two different searches provided such different results because of the way search engines work. The phrase with quotes around it searched for those two specific words together on the site, while the phrase without quotes simply searched for each word somewhere in the site. Therefore, there were many more results of the single words, rather than the phrase.
