Recently purchased for business purposes using excel and banktree2 but hoping this will be able to replace them. Initially very frustrating but it takes time to get used to new software. Hope that buying a user guide will help.

5.0 out of 5 stars A helpful and well set out book, 21 July 2014
This is a very helpful guide for someone who is new to renting property. It covers many aspects including different types of property ownership, as well as income tax, capital gains tax and advanced tax planning.

I found the style very easy to read and understand and as accessible as a book on this subject could be.

It is a book you need to dip into from time to time as a reference. The frequent use of examples helps illustrate the points being made. There is only one improvement I could think of which would be the inclusion of an index, as it would make it easier to find things. There is a detailed list of contents at the front however which makes it possible to search for items by subject.

Really fiddly even though the instructions were clear I wasn't sure which layer was which. Then couldn't remove all the bubbles hopefully will be easier next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear concise and very easy to read., 27 Nov. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a mature student I found this particular book the best on the subject of revision and working towards passing exams. It is very easy to read the layout is very clear, the book is stimulating and helps build the confidence you need to succeed.

The author does not talk down to you and makes it all seem doable after all.

An excellent book, buy it if you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ULTIMATE BUSINESS STRATEGY BOOK, 25 Nov. 2007
Yes, this is the best of them all, forget all the others don't even look at them, they're not worth a second glance.

I first started reading an earlier edition of this over 5 years ago after seeing someone else with it but it was big and bulky and I found it hard to carry around. At that tme I was an AAT student.

Five years on now struggling with TOPCIMA, a management accountancy exam, I bought this latest edition out of desperation and its absolutely fantastic. In between I've been ploughing through Porter's strategy books which are excellent, but this one beats those hands down. There's a wealth of information and case studies all clearly set out and easy to read. Added to this is the on line resource which is really useful. This edition is worth every penny and I know it is expensive. It may not get me through the exam but its an ideal resource to draw on when needed.

This has to be the business strategists bible! Read it!

2.0 out of 5 stars A little dissapointing but worth a second look, 21 Nov. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this after reading the great reviews, but not my idea of a great book, but see the last paragraph below. I found the style not to my liking far too American. Not enough emphasis on persistence and failure and how to cope as an adult or mature student. I think this book is more for schoolkids but if it works for you then go ahead and read it, it could be the one for you. Not one of the best tools in my toolkit but I would lend it to a friend if I thought it would help them.

The book that works for me and the one I would particulary recommend on this subject is Make Exams Easy by Mike Evans.

After writing this review I took the opportunity to reread this book and would say that perhaps the style just put me off, as its a little like the "principles" in the mould of Stephen Covey, which comes across rather dogmatic, hence my feeling rather patronised. But really there is a lot of interesting as well as useful stuff here, particularly about active learning rather than just letting information wash over you and not assimilating it properly. Its certainly worth a second look!

This review is from: Keyboard Coach (CD-ROM)
I asked for this last Christmas and didn't get it then bought if myself. Yes, its great covers basic to more advanced and is easy to understand. It'll have you playing chopsticks again in no time. Maybe not for the really serious amateaur but if its fun you want this has it!
