4.0 out of 5 stars Great overview of cost accounting for manufacturing 14 May 2004
By Eileen McClelland - Published on Amazon.com
This little book is a wonderful review of all the things you need to consider if you are doing accounting in a manufacturing concern. The ideas are applicable as well for service organizations but the examples are geared toward accounting for manufactured products. The authors talk about when or why you would use a certain type of costing method rather than just explain how it's done. For example, they explain the reason for using Just In Time costing and the benefits over traditional cost accounting and describe what performance measures you would use with each system. I'm only halfway through my libray copy but have decided to buy my own to keep for reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Teaching Tool 22 Sep 2012
By Julian A Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used this book as one of a series of texts in a Master of Business Administration managerial accounting class. It serves well in this capacity and the four texts combined that I used (all in the Barron's series) were much less costly than a traditional textbook. I believe that the students will more likely retain these books as reference materials as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Practical than Theory! 12 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very well - organized introduction to cost accounting. There are some very useful chapters on cost behavior and cost estimation, as well as cost-volume-profit and break even analysis. The theory is very clear, however, the quantitative examples are basic. Not a complete study guide for the MBA student, but a great compendium to supplement theory and basic understanding. Plus, if you own several volumes from the Barron's Business Library you get the bonus of having them look cool on the bookshelf!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Shim is the best. 10 Jan 2013
By Ray C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
He is a prolific writer who covers finance, accounting and operations managment. I have yet to read a book by him that I did not enjoy. He uses examples and helps you understand new topics. His books are not reference books per se, but you keep them on your bookself to go back to when you forget how to complete a particular process.
