Decrease in service with newer addition, September 6, 2007


By 




With the 14th edition of this book, the use of the website for studying was taken away, to be replaced with a pay for use service of about . My professor would have stayed with the 13th edition had he known that they were going to take away this service to the students. No CD or access to a website for answers to the questions. Book is well written, easy to follow, but needs a more comprehensive glossary, since words and phrases within accounting mean different things and can be interpreted differently depending on the user and with accounting following the GAAP rule this becomes even more important. Practice items are well designed. The Layout of the book demands approximately 100 pages a week for a semester course, for a course in oversight of accounting this is rather hefty. Without a CD or other access privileges, I don't see a need to order this as a new item, go for used!

A beginner's accounting book written by poor writers., February 27, 2011



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: Financial & Managerial Accounting (Hardcover)


This is supposed to be a BEGINNER'S accounting book, but throughout the book it assumes that the student has information that IS NOT in this book. It made me hate the idea of being an accountant and I have changed majors because of it. DO NOT buy it unless you are willing to spend a lot of time messing with it.
One of the biggest issues about this book is that it uses terminology that is not defined anywhere in the book and then gives you very long examples to teach you what they want you to know. I have a master's degree in education and I have had to rewrite every single chapter in order to get all of the information that my current teachers want me to get from this book.

Great as a supplement, poor as a primer, November 19, 2001

This book is not a how-to guide for setting up your books, nor is it an introductory "accounting for dummies" type book. It is a review that reflects the topics taught in introductory accounting classes. As a result, topics are presented in a concise manner, then the text moves on to the next topic.

Although I love the terse, no-nonsense style of the Business Review series, I was somewhat disappointed in this book. Double-entry accounting is summarized, not explained. It does, however, cover the basics with real world examples and exercises.

Purchase orders are only mentioned in passing. Sales invoices, sales receipts, service invoices, and are not mentioned at all. The chapter on receivables and payables focuses on methods of writing off bad debts, and extending credit.

If you are looking for a review for your accounting class, this might be it. If you are looking for a one-stop resource to help run your business, you might finish this book and find yourself reaching for other books to fill the gaps.

Great book--useful overiview of accounting., November 13, 1999


By A Customer



After reading other "overview" books, this one Ifound to be the most effective. Eisen gives an excellent breakdown ofmajor accounting concepts. He gives enough detail to explain concepts in a pratical manner yet still handles every major area I needed information on; he's comprehensive yet still concise. Information about the chart of accounts, general ledger, journal, sales transactions, costs, etc. were all explained with the assumption the reader is a beginner without treating the reader like an idiot. I'm glad I found this book.

Great MBA program or CLEP prep, September 17, 2003


By 
Michael T. Cox (Durham, NC United States) - See all my reviews




Your Business Review series is excellent. While this series was not designed for CLEPs or any of the other standardized examinations universities use to test accomplished areas of knowledge, I have found the entire series crucial for just that. Particularly as I am entering an MBA program. These volumes were precisely what I needed, and I have been telling everyone with even slight interest in these topics about them. Specifically, I am referring to the following books of the series (by title): Accounting, Business Statistics, Economics, Finance, Management, and Marketing.
