I am looking at becomming an accountant and have no knowledge of accounting so thought i'd try this book. It says in the book that an absolute beginner should start with a dummies guide to accountancy but it's not available on kindle so I tried this one. It's a great book! It explains new ideas really clearly and then asks you questions to apply the knowledge. It creates ficional companies, gives you different business scenarios and asks you to use your new knowledge to crunch the numbers. It's an interactive way of learning which is enjoyable and helps you retain the information easily. From the experience of working through the book I have decided to look at enroling on an AAT course and to become an accountant!

This book wasn't exactly what I anticipated it to be but that could be my own misconception. This would be good to support an accounting course.

It is a book for "dummies" however, an introduction to accounting should definitely include consolidation - this did NOT.

Was impressed with the delivery performance, but upset with the content.

A waste of money. Unless you are doing a degree course or have a good understanding of book keeping and its terminology. The book starts off with giving exercises for balance sheets and profit and loss without explaining how and where these figures are extracted from in the general ledgers and/or from the cash book and/or T accounts. I purchased it for my son who is struggling to keep his books for his garage business. It does not build up the understanding of how accounts, ledgers ie invoices, day books, cash day/books are created and maintained. Bank reconciliation I could not find that in the book. It explains how to make adjustments to accounting ledgers before explaining in detail how the entries should be collated. Exercises assumed the beginner could do the exercises without knowing the basic structure of where the information came from. Normally the Dummies range are excellent, I was so dissapointed in this particular book - I had to did out my old accounts books from the attic from my degree course 20 years ago!
