By Nikos
A very good book, that covers a lot of topics. It provides you with a lot of examples, based on real financial statements of big multinational companies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Been a Fan of the Horngren Series 27 Sep 2009
By Citizen John - Published on
What I like about the Horngren Series is the practicality of it. This series still manages to usually hold the number of pages down to about 100 less than its quite excellent major competitors (Weygandt-Kieso-Kimmel, Wild-Larson-Chiappetta, and Stickey-Weil-Schipper-Francis). It's still a large-dimension hardcover and this Horngren book has 840 pages. That's plenty of space for one course, 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. But it still serves 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.

By Anthony Calderon - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
DON'T BUY BROKEN BINDING AWFUL CONDITION. It broke in about a week and it was in such poor state that I can't even barely use it. It has affected my studying and made it harder to study out of the book. Don't trust!

5.0 out of 5 stars Financial Accounting 31 Dec 2012
By Estelle Williams - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book, it illustrated examples and gave you problems to work through using the information and knowledge you gained when reading the chapters. I have had to constantly refer back to this textbook to verify various accounting formulas for other classes. This book exceeded my expectations.
