Format: Paperback
I received the product really late and I turned out to be the wrong one - wasn't announced properly. After many iterations, I had to get my money back and now repeating the purchasing process again.

Would not recommend this seller.

Format: Paperback
The delivery was relatively fast, but the book was supposed to be as new, and it really is not. There are some food spots on it, it's just not neat.

Use for MBA 5 Dec 1999
By Wolf. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was a requirement for the Financial Accounting class in my MBA course. I was put off by the price but found it is worth every penny. The overall layout is very logical, each chapter has numerous 'real world' examples and ends with more sample problems than you could ever hope to solve. 'Check Figure' partial solutions are provided in one of several useful appendices.
I started out knowing absolutely nothing about accounting, now I have a firm foundation thanks more to this excellent book than my professor ...
I will never sell this book

Excellent introduction to accounting concepts 21 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I used the book for a review course covering Prin. I & II. It includes excellent graphics and illustrations. Basic accounting topics are discussed and illustrated clearly. Mid and end chapter problems were great reviews. I highly recommend this book as an introduction to basic accounting concepts.

Always Been a Fan of the Horngren Series 27 Sep 2009
By Citizen John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What I like about the Horngren Series is the practicality of it. This series has always managed to hold the number of pages down to about 200 less than its quite excellent major competitors (Weygandt-Kieso-Kimmel and Wild-Larson-Chiappetta). It's still a large-dimension hardcover and this Horngren book has 752 pages. That's plenty of space for a student, and Horngren provides more than enough easy-access online materials as well.

Horngren is mainly used by university students although Weygandt-Kieso-Kimmel have gained market share. But Horngren also recognizes that most financial accountants do not need an accounting degree. They need to understand accounting and know how to do their specific jobs. In fact, I've long noticed the small ratio of accountants working in accounting departments that actually have accounting degrees. For them, the Horngren Series is well-designed in addition to serving the needs of college students.

Horngren places emphasis on the accounting cycle. In doing so, this textbook covers the actual job duties within an accounting department quite efficiently. That's why I also purchase Horngren Series books. I purchase them for staff as well as additional resource material to help me prepare when I teach accounting courses at the university level. Because if its special niche and top-notch editing, I would expect this series to last through many more editions.

Just make sure to get the latest edition.

A Fabulous book!!! 29 Nov 2005
By Tamara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am currently taking an Accounting class with this book and I think it is great. It is easy to understand. It is very straight and to the point. It gives you plenty of real world examples from real companies and their financial reports (which makes it a lot more interesting than other Accounting books...) Also Amazon.com is great and I have always had great experiences with Amazon.com.
