A better text is available, July 4, 2006




As background for dissusion of the Beams "Advanced Accounting" text, 9th ed.: I took advanced accounting at one university last summer (which covered much of advanced accounting, but no accounting for not-for-profit organizations). Due to scheduling availability, I am taking advanced accounting at a different university this summer...this class WILL cover not-for-profit accounting issues, which is why I am taking it. We used the Hoyle, Schaefer, Doupnik "Advanced Accounting" 7th ed. text last year, and even though the concepts were difficult, the examples assisted greatly, and the text was clear, organized and without noticeable errors.

I wish the same could be said of the Beams "Advanced Accounting" 9th ed. Currently in my study of the fourth chapter, I find the text frequently wanders off topic, and contains surprising errors. For example, on page 106 (Chapt.4), it makes a math error (,000 - ,500 x 80% = ,500). My calculator indicates the answer should be ,800. On page 107 it attributes a .5k elimination to "Entry b" described on page 106, when the amount actually belongs to "Entry c", described on the same page. This type of error requires the reader to perform a lot of additional work to get to the bottom of the information to be acquired. These are just two of the numerous issues I have uncovered in study of only four chapters. So far, the text compares poorly to the Hoyle, et. al. product, sadly, (which is why I am providing this warning) and I am not looking forward to the rest of the current summer semester!

Please, Prentice Hall, thoroughly review and edit this text before the next edition, and give students their money's worth.

Advanced accounting, April 5, 2000


By 




I used this book as my self-study material and I benefited from this book a lot. I would recommend using it either as a textbook for Advanced Accounting course or as a reference book for professionals. Here are the few points that I would like to share with you:

1. Logical order The order to display the topics in this book is logical and consistent. This is important for self-study users. At the beginning of each chapter, there's always a paragraph or two summarize the main points that are going to present in the chapter. This gives the reader a whole picture.

2. Clear explanation and examples The book uses easy explanatory languages and the examples are very representative. Each example, the author is showing us every detail steps, so it is easy to follow.

3. Relevant exercises and problems. At the end of each chapter, there are questions that can help to reinforce the concepts. Most questions can be found directly from the material. There are also exercises and problems that are related to the topic presented in the chapter. I remember there is an accounting book I used before that the problems required more knowledge than the chapter actually covered. This not the case in this book. Some of the examples in the chapter could be used as quick reference while working on the problems, too.

The only thing I would recommend, if I need to find some, is that I hope there could be more real life issues mentioned in the book. In this way, readers can relate the knowledge to daily life even closer.

Need more examples -- rely on website?, July 15, 2007




As a student I found this book's transaction examples to be somewhat limited. For instance, in the existing-foreign-currency-transaction hedge examples, both cash-flow and fair-value, only A/R adjustments are treated, there are no *buy side* transactions with A/P illustrated. There are also a lot of minor errors that are distracting.

A little overpriced, but fits a need., February 8, 2011

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: Managerial Accounting (Hardcover)


This book is more helpful to someone who is versed in accounting or is an accountant, for those of us who are students or are not versed in accounting some of the principals and learning objectives in the book are confusing. The step-by-step process of certain problems and concepts could be more thorough with the purpose of helping one catch on to accounting methods.

I'm assigning 4 stars to the content of the book, but i have to deduct two stars for making a digital edition of a hard cover book not available on Kindle for Android.

Surprised by poor production quality, October 30, 2007

This review is from: What Counts: Social Accounting for NonProfits and Cooperatives (Paperback)


I haven't gotten a chance to delve into the content yet, but I was surprised by the poor production quality on this book given the cover price. Looks like it was typeset in Word and printed on a laser printer.
