very well packaged, no signs or marks within the pages, a hard cover would be more fascinating, but unfortunately is too expensive

5.0 out of 5 stars Best resource for an accounting class 23 Oct 2012
By M. Price - Published on Amazon.com
I am taking a Managerial Accounting course at a business school, and this book has been indispensable. Whenever I am confused about a term I look it up in here, and the book almost never fails to have an entry for it. The definitions are excellent, clear, and go into detail when necessary, such as including formulas for calculating different values. It also helps you to understand the relationships between different terms and concepts. If you are studying accounting, you should have this.
