2.0 out of 5 stars not very good for self study 21 Aug 2007
My main problem with this text is the lack of explanation around examples and answers to selected questions. The answers at the end of the textbook are literally 1 line answers so if your numbers don't match you have no idea where you went wrong.

The sections about accounting standards are good and detailed so it worth's buying this with another book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a good book for fin. accounting students 4 Aug 2000
By A Customer
I do not recommend this book as a course book for financial accounting students who would like to study fin. accounting. It does not contain any case studies and its ratio analysis part is a bit poor. However, this is a really good book to read or refer to if someone is interested in learning more about the details of UK accounting standards. Lastly, it is not so easy to read and understand.

2.0 out of 5 stars not recommended for self study 1 May 2001
By A Customer
This book does not provide good answers for self study, they are too brief. It is good for learning uk accounting standards or as a referrence with an additional work book with answers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended, try Melville instead 14 April 2010
By Han
This is the recommended textbook for our third year accountancy course at university. I took one look and decided to stick with my Melville textbook from previous years. It's written in an extreemly complicated way, whereas Melville is simple and easy to follow. I had no accounting experience before I started the coure, but I'm on track to achieve a first, so it's not that I'm lacking the intelligence to understand the theory!

Many of the other students on the course did buy the textbook. They said that it includes way too much information that isn't required, and doesn't help you understand the topic any better (Melville is just stripped back to the essentials). Others have said that it confused them and they've moved on to different textbooks.

I would say that if you have mastered the basics and you want more in depth reading then this does offer more than the Melville textbook. It depends on what level your course is at.

Simply put: too cluttered and too much irrelevant information for beginners, but useful if you want extra reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Over complicated 13 Nov 2009
Melville's book explains things in a far straight forward way. Too academic for a 3rd year accounting student in my opinion
