This review is from: Managerial Accounting: An Introduction to Concepts, Methods and Uses (Hardcover)


As a professor who teaches this topic at both the undergraduate and graduate level, I feel that this text is without a doubt the most cleanly written and well thought-out text there is on this topic. While you might find books out there that are more comprehensive and attempt to cover more material, and ones that might delve into levels of detail and complication in terms of computations, there is simply none better in terms of readability. As a Socratic professor, this is KEY to having my students fully prepared for class.

If you are looking for a "how to" style book with a "preparer emphasis" however, I recommend you look elsewhere to something like Hansen, Noreen or Garrison. The focus on this book is DISTINCTIVELY critical thinking and problem solving concepts, which can be frustrating if you are looking for a "how to manual". Instead, this book focuses on the "why", and does leave more of the "how" to the student and professor than many others.

The book has a very conceptual approach and it's handling of both ethical AND cultural factors involved in the management accounting process is second to none.

For an MBA course looking for a superbly-written book that students can and will read, seeking to blend great conceptual content with the development of critical thinking skills and a true global impact, you simply cannot - and I repeat - cannot beat the new edition of this book - period.

Sometimes it's not too clear in explaining the concepts. I would have liked more solutions to problems. There are several typos

Bad textbook, March 12, 2012



This review is from: Managerial Accounting: An Introduction to Concepts, Methods and Uses (Hardcover)


Poorly constructed problems and poor grammar throughout the textbook. Typos render some problems useless (on one occasion beginning inventory is stated as 24,000 units when it should clearly be 2,400 for the problem to make sense). The authors did not put enough effort into this.

MyAccountingLab NOT included, September 5, 2011



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)



This textbook does NOT include a MyAccountingLab access code. If you're looking to get the textbook as well as the access code, you're better off buying from your college bookstore as they will have both bundled together (7) at my college bookstore). You'd think you'd get both the book and the access considering the price at Amazon but no; this important bit of information is buried in the product description.

MyAccountingLab's customer service (Ben) is is useless in providing you an access code for free even though you've purchased the book.

You can purchase a digital copy of the book from MyAccountingLab for 0 but printing any portions of it will include a big watermark across each page as well as a footer with copyright data including your e-mail address. On the plus side, the price includes the access code. It's not a very big plus though as you can't sell your book back.

Be careful if buying a used book from e-bay or other third party that supposedly includes the access code. Access codes have an expiration date; once used, it cannot be used again.

Bottom line: Buy the textbook and access code from your college bookstore. Only college bookstores carry this textbook and access code bundle for about 7. No other third party book seller does.

Good book to learn the fundamental principles of accounting., August 23, 1997


By A Customer



This book helped me get a good start in my Accounting college courses. It lays out the fundamental principles of Accounting simply and clearly. Its emphasis on the process leading to, creation of, and analysis of financial statements, would be very helpful to anyone who may need to understand just what a company's financial statements really mean

The book you have been searching for, February 3, 2009




This book has everything you need to know laid out step-by-step and eminently readable. It is the gold standard of accounting books for begining accounting students. What can I say but "buy it"! You will thank yourself for it.
