Friday, February 15, 2019 | Author: Tammy Glascock, Texas FFA SAE Coordinator

1. Make use of The AET Mobile App. It is great for students who are on the go.

2. Utilize The AET’s Student Tutorial Guide and videos to better understand the record book keeping system.

3. Stay up to date and do not get behind. Set aside time each week to make entries and update your records and activities.

4. Keep all of your receipts. Keeping receipts will ensure your financial records are accurate, which will allow you to determine your profit/loss margins.

5. Become familiar with financial terms such as assets, capital, current, non-current, depreciation, etc. Not only will it make it easier to keep your record book, it will be useful knowledge later in life with your personal record keeping and taxes.

6. Have friends, siblings, parents, or teachers take pictures of you engaged in your SAE. Always remember to use the landscape mode when using your phone to take a picture.

7. Reference record books of former members with similar SAE programs. Remember these are for reference only, do not plagiarize.

8. Utilize a calendar to make notes of events, activities, purchases, income, etc. They make great references for completing your record books.
9. Keep your resume updated with all your FFA activities, courses/classes, community service and other school activities. Remember, current resumes are also needed to apply for jobs and complete scholarship applications.

10. Utilize The AET journal to record administration of medications, vet visits, weights, daily gains, exercise, hours worked, pay raises, SAE visits from your teacher, accomplishments resulting a newly developed skill or learning experience, etc. The journal notes will aid in completing reports or essays.
