Mistake in the very first worked example!
on 2 September 2013
I was hesitant to buy this as the reviews were mixed but it was the best I could find. I got as far as the first worked example, where there's a glaring mistake in it, and after spending so long prior to that scratching my head wondering how what the author was saying could make sense I realised it doesn't, the example's just wrong. Up to that point I'd already struggled with the writing style and the difficulty I had in keeping up with what the author was saying. I hate it when teachers and authors explain things in a way that they understand, and fail to realise others are reading to learn, they don't know it. I gave up with the book at that point and instead bought Accounts Demystified, which is drastically better written, and how taught me (after a very long time!) how to fully understand the balance sheet, credits and debits. I recommend you buy that book, not this one.
