A Surprisingly Good Read, September 2, 2008



This review is from: Managerial Accounting (Hardcover)


I bought this textbook sight unseen with the intend of using it as a reference for work. I originally learned mangerial accounting in my MBA program some years ago using Noreen and Garrison's Managerial Accounting textbook. It was my first choice as it is regarded as the best textbook on the subject but I could not get it for a reasonable price. So, I saw that this textbook had just came out and I went for it. At first glance, I was more or less unimpressed with its content comparing it to my old Noreen and Garrison' textbook. Bamber/Braun/Harrison's text seemed too simplicitic and not to deep in content. But, I decided to keep it and work through it.

It did not take me long to realize it is a great textbook. It is very readable and loaded with lots of complete worked out examples. It is also very visually appealing. It is clean and uncluttered with excellent graphics and it is printed on high quality, low-glare paper. The author's explain terms and concept's very well. Again, it is not as sophisticated/complicated as Noreen/Garrison (but that is where they fall down). To be sure, I also bought on the cheap the 3rd edition of Cost Management by Hilton. Again, Bamber/Braun/Harrison beats it it too for it clear prose and explanations. Ex. Bamber/Braun/Harrison do a terrific job explaining the topic of Operating Levarge on pages 386 and 387 including a good example. In Hilton's book, he does it in a paragraph and I swear, I have no clue what he was trying to say.

Final point, I also purchased the study guide that accompanies Bamber/Braun/Harrison. It is also an excellent teaching product. It is the best looking - most useful study guide I have ever used (for economics Brune and McConnell's study guide is by far the most comprehensive and exhaustive). It is printed on exceptionally good paper, in color using the same graphics as the main text. Each chapter is loaded with lots of fully worked out Demo problems. If you are an instructor, I would urge you to take a good look at this textbook for use in your classes as it will definitely make learning this challenging subject much easier.

A Decent Book With A Few Flaws, December 21, 2010


By 
Joe V (Kansas City, Missouri) - See all my reviews



This review is from: Managerial Accounting (2nd Edition) (Hardcover)


I am an undergraduate business student majoring in accounting. This book on managerial accounting was written well and concepts were covered thoroughly, but the arrangement and organization was extremely confusing. At the end of each section there is a box entitled "Decision Guidelines" as well as a summary problem. Unfortunately, these two parts detract from the material more than they add to it. I was frustrated as I tried to do the problems at the end of each chapter as well. Moreover, there were way too many problems, exercises, and short answers at the end of each chapter. I'm all for reinforcing the material with practice problems, but when half the book is composed of problems, you might want to consider scaling it back a little bit.

Another strange, rather annoying feature of this book is a "Glindex" which combines a glossary and an index into one thing. I was curious as to why the authors did this. To save paper? Well, the book itself 825 pages long, so this explanation does not seem likely.

One upside is the MyAccounting Lab packet that came along with my purchase. My Accounting Lab is a web-based tutorial and assessment accounting software that is a decent supplementary resource for students.

Here's the table of contents for this book.
1. Introduction to Managerial Accounting
2. Building Blocks of Managerial Accounting
3. Job Costing
4. Activity-Based Costing, Lean Production, and the Costs of Quality
5. Process Costing
6. Cost Behavior
7. Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis
8. Short-Term Business Decisions
9. The Master Budget and Responsibility Accounting
10. Flexible Budgets and Standard Costs
11. Performance Evaluation and the Balanced Scorecard
12. Capital Investment and the Time Value of Money
13. Statement of Cash Flows
14. Financial Statement Analysis

This review is from: Managerial Accounting (2nd Edition) (Hardcover)


This text book is really good, very simple, covered all essntial materials in good literaly and business language. Highly recomended for bachelors, but will be not productive for master programs. It will be perfect, if in addition the authors will add modern cases as supplyments, which will help students treat their knowledge and understand how to implement major managerial principales in real business activities.

BE AWARE, September 18, 2012

I thought this book starts from chapter 1. However, when I got this book I found out that this book does NOT have from chap. 1 to chap. 12, but starts from chap. 13. Huge waste of money and time. People, just be careful when you buy textbooks online. Do not be fooled and waste big money for nothing.

Excellent textbook, September 30, 2012



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: Intermediate Accounting with Annual Report (Hardcover)


This is an excellent textbook for learning IA 1 & 2, as it is typically split by universities. I have used this textbook to teach myself IA1 and am using it for IA2, as I take these courses online without any benefit of notes or a lecture from a professor. There are comprehensive examples, well-thought out explanations of details, acknowledgement of some inconsistencies in GAAP accounting practices, and information regarding potential changes being instituted by FASB and the path toward convergence with IFRS. In addition, the online Connect teaching tool, through the McGraw-Hill website, is really very good. You get really good practice with necessary calculations and setting up journal entries.

It is a massive book and at the end you're going to look at it and be shocked that you actually read the whole thing, but it will teach you so much. I typically rent my textbooks, but I bought this one, despite the cost, because I know that I will be referring to it frequently throughout my accounting classes and as I prepare to take the CPA exam. Can't go wrong with the Spiceland textbook.

Software Issues, January 17, 2012

This review is from: Computer Accounting with Quickbooks 2011 MP -wQBPremAccCD, wStudent CD (Spiral-bound)


The book itself was in great shape but the software for the book was unusable. The way the software is set up you have to download online templates & once you do your data is saved on a data security service that you have to sign up for in order to use the software. My problem is the chapter templates that I have to download are not there, When I click on the chapter template it gives me an error message & a solution, but the solution is to open up the data on the data security network. Naturally having just signed up to the service you don't have any files backed up so you can't do anything making the book absolutely worthless

Not necessarily a book you would buy to learn on your own (though, you definitely could). I use it in my college QuickBooks Pro class and it is very easy to follow. If you know how to follow step-by-step, it is no issue at all. I am able to work ahead in class and be done in half the time of those following along with the teacher by the ease they write out the steps.

My big issue, though, is the provided software trial does NOT work with Windows 7. I recently purchased a new laptop and was unhappy to find that I could not make up my classwork on a day I had to miss class sick. Just something to keep in mind when getting this book.
