Recommended Course: NetSuite Essentials

NetSuite Essentials is a 5-day course that provides a general introduction to what our system can do.  It has a for-profit focus, but the terminology and concepts covered may help familiarize you with the information presented in our Self-Implementation Guide.

Recommended reading if you're new to fund accounting:
