As most responders have mentioned already, I think the best course of action is to try and take some sort of entry level accounting class depending on whether or not you are in high school or college. From there, you can get a decent grasp of the field and some of the basic fundamentals of the profession. In my experience, I would like to mention that accounting is not the same in the real world as what it feels like in accounting classes. In the real world, there is client interaction, project management, and much more than just crunching numbers. So with that being said, do no feel intimidated or put off from accounting if it seems too technical for you. Lastly, if you feel like accounting is a fit for you, I suggest obtaining the 150 credit requirement to sit for the CPA exam.
