Complete, well structured and easy to read. Extremely useful during my MBA. I am sure that I will still use it for several times.

Could be MUCH better. 30 Sept. 2011
By Jason - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My review is based on the 9th edition. The book does provide the basic ideas about financial accounting. However, it is not very good for self-study.
There are some cons about this book that prevent me from giving it more stars :

(1) No answers/no solutions to any of the end-of-chapter problems. So, you cannot test yourself and see if you understood the concepts properly. There is no students solutions manual for this book. If you are lucky, you can get an instructors manual from your instructor.

(2) Not enough sample problems in each chapter. Generally, 2-4 problems only. Not enough, considering point (1).

(3) At some places, the author uses uncommon words and verbose passages to explain concepts. They confused me sometimes.

(4) It does not mention how some accounting ratios are used in the real world and whether one must make decisions based mainly on a lot of ratios.

It is difficult to understand and appreciate the basics of accounting by reading only this book.

An alternative to this book is Financial Accounting by Libby. It uses a lot of pictures to illustrate concepts, which this book does not. Again, libby's book has no answers in the end, but its contents are presented in a better way.
Careful when renting from Apex Media 26 Jun. 2013
By Whitney R Hannan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I rented this used textbook through Apex Media for ~$30. They sent me a text book that was in great condition, but the binding was damaged. Since that didn't affect my usage of the book, I continued to use it for the semester. Once I returned the book, Apex charged me the full amount for the book, ~$300, because they claimed I damaged the binding. Amazon representatives were helpful in resolving the issue and suggested calling right away to let them know if you receive a damaged rental textbook.
Wow, not bad 6 Dec. 2012
By Casey L. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the required textbook for my intro to accounting course. To be honest the book would not have been necessary to pass the course because we had a very competent professor, but it is very easy to read and the given examples provide very clear explanations of transactions and concepts. When I wasn't sure about a concept from class the textbook always provided a quick and complete explanation. Can't really ask for more.
Just fine 15 Jun. 2013

Needed this for a course and it did the job just fine and arrived safely and in one piece - just what I needed. My teacher sucked, but that certainly wasn't the book's fault.
