Great deal!, June 24, 2012



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: Financial Accounting (Hardcover)


Brand new and way cheaper than buying it from my university's bookstore!!! I saved over 50 dollars. Pretty good book for accounting, but it did lack the answers to the problems in the back. That would have been helpful when trying to correct your homework.

Very well written, systematic, student-friendly, February 23, 2012





This review is from: Financial Accounting (Hardcover)


I appreciate how student-friendly the text is. It provides theory, examples with running explanations, and plenty of examples to do on your own (though without a way to "check" your work). I did buy the Kindle version and must state that the only glaring flop here is that you cannot print, even a single page. I contacted Wiley & Amazon directly about this and Wiley points to Amazon, and Amazon says it's something to "consider" which means for having purchased a very expensive ebook you loose the ability to do what you could do by means of photocopy if you had the print version.

Accounting for Governmental & Nonprofit Entities, April 14, 2008






This is a horrible book! Do not buy it. It is a student's nightmare. If you want to learn about government and nonprofit accounting, you're NOT going to gain much, if any, knowledge from this book. The authors do not use plain language, but talk back on themselves in sentences so that the flow of thought is interrupted and you must eliminate words in order to continue the flow, or switch thoughts entirely and then switch back-many times the subject of the sentence is completely lost and never finished. Many unnecessary comments, such as "need not be discussed here" and "as one would expect" plus excessive references to other chapters and Illustrations that are useless. Very limited on examples; I found it necessary to search the internet for the answers to the questions at the end of the chapters because the questions are not worded in relation to the information stated in the chapter, and the problems utilized account names never discussed in the book.

If you have a strong foundation in government or nonprofit accounting, then this book might be useful as a reference. For a student just learning about the systems, it is pretty worthless.

Professors, I beg that you use the feedback from students to develop a book from which we can actually learn these procedures. I never looked forward to an accounting class more than this one, and I'm so disappointed and feel like I've wasted my money. I know that the professors have the knowledge to teach the information in a way that we understand, so just put that into hardcopy and produce a proper book for students!

For an online class using this book, don't waste your time or money.

Puke! This book is awful! :-(, April 29, 2003


By A Customer



Please, no one buy this book... it will torture you like nothing else can. This book actually deserves -5 stars for how terribly written it is. The authors seem to repeat the same sentences in 5 or 6 different ways. It is poorly organized, it doesn't seem to have any real objective... a little bit of this here and a little bit of that there. Also, it is completely black and white with absolutely no pictures and very few illustrations... it will be of absolutely no help to a visual learner.

I needed this book for a governmental accounting course in college and when my bookstore wouldn't buy it back from me I wept tears. Luckily, my governmental accounting professor was really good otherwise there is no way I would have learned anything from this course. If you can possibly find some other book or maybe a newer edition would be better. The only somewhat helpful thing about this book was the City of Smithville project (CD-ROM) but even that had problems. It had a lot of technical difficulties and if you messed up an entry you pretty much had to start the project all over again. If you are doing City of Smithville, beware!

This Book is Horrible, June 17, 2006



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)



This book is poorly written. Unless you know Non-profit accounting, it is not written so that you will learn anything. I'm assuming professors use this book because of the Smithville case and for no other reason. Honestly, I do not feel the Smithville case goes along with the book very well. The authors should have exchanged notes a little more. Unless it is required or you are already working in non-profit accounting, I would not buy this book.
