    Question account book or ...

    In China, when you deposit a sum of money with a bank and you don't apply a debit card or credit card attached to the account, you get generally a "book". My question what should be the name of the "book", which records each transaction with your account. It could perhaps be called "deposit account", but the "book" itselft could be called "deposit account book" or not?

    Any other practical words and expressions related to banking, please also tell me. Great thanks!

    Account book is exactly right. Also, you probably have a checking account.
