Inexplicable Cover, Terrible Title, March 19, 2011



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)



As an accounting textbook, this is just fine. Some people have complained that it's difficult or complicated, but anybody who has taken some basic business classes will be just fine. Assuming you are in college when you would need an accounting textbook, that should be pretty much everybody. My main complaint is that the title of the book is ridiculous and mahjong tiles have absolutely nothing to do with accounting. I would literally prefer a cover that was just numbers, or an ASCII picture of a notebook labeled "Accounting Journal." Anything but this. When I am in my accounting class, I get distracted when we're asked to get out our textbooks. Am I the only person who has noticed this? Am I alone?

Not so great, but, August 17, 2011

Really, not so great, but what are you going to do if your professor chooses that is written poorly and can't convey the subject intended to be taught!

Accounting: What the Numbers Mean, February 7, 2011



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)



Pretty good overall at teaching you the basic concepts of accounting. It seems like it could accomplish the same end with much less text.

Excellent book, July 19, 2011



This review is from: Managerial Accounting (Hardcover)


Using this text for a UCLA extension on-line Managerial Accounting class. Excellent text: clear and concise explanations, well placed illustrations and exhibits (I hate it when the text refers to an exhibit two pages over so you have to keep flipping back and forth); very good (free) on-line supplementary activities through publishers' website includes check figures, videos, powerpoints, quizes and practice exams; there is a fee-based "connect" supplement through the publisher but I have not used it and can't comment on it. This is the 14th edition and unlike other accounting texts with numerous editions where the authors appear to simply keep adding words until the narrative is incomprehensible, they have kept things tight. A nice change.

Not comparing apples to apples, September 24, 2011



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: Managerial Accounting (Hardcover)


This text was brand new and what I thought I was purchasing but they did not make it clear that it did not include the code needed to complete the assignemnts. Therefore it was just as cheap to buy at the college bookstore.

Not bad for a school book, June 22, 2012



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: Managerial Accounting (Hardcover)


I am using this book as part of my Master's Program. I am not an accountant nor do I have any background in the subject. This book makes it so I don't need to. It is well written and is easy to follow an understand. Each chapter is laid out with the learning objectives and there are real world examples of how the subjects play out in the real world. At the end of each chapter are a series of questions and exercises that reinforce the material presented in the chapter. I took advantage and signed up for the McGraw Hill Connect Account. This account provides even more information and sample quizzes and tests for each chapter.

I normally don't get excited about textbooks but this one has definitely been a big plus for me while I am going back to school. Wish all textbooks were as good as this one.
