It is really a big problem when you do bookkeeping without any background information on it at all. You see, for you to be able to do it correctly, you need to have an understanding of the accounting jargon, of account titles and their proper classification. Anyway, to give you a head start, see the attached document.
I hope this would help you. Good luck!
