2.0 out of 5 stars Only Some Solutions To Questions, 30 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Book-Keeping and Accounts (Paperback)
I bought this book because of the other high rated reviews. I agree the text is straightforward and topics are covered in detail.

HOWEVER, what other reviews fail to state is that only some of the questions set in each chapter have solutions. About two thirds are printed in the book. However the website you are directed to on the first page of the book for the solutions, states that there are no dedicated resources for this edition (or the previous one) and just directs you to webpage for a completely different book. So no solutions for these questions.

For me, testing the knowledge I have acquired is the most important step in learning. Setting questions without answers is utterly pointless.

Really expected more from an established author and publisher. This just feels like rather ignorant cost cutting. I would rather pay more for the few extra pages that need to be printed or to support a resources website.

I'm having the SAME problems with this book. I've tried emailing AND calling customer services and no-one seems to know who has these additional solutions? Surely by purchasing a copy of the book, I, as the consumer, have the right to know the answers to questions that are set in the textbook? Failing to provide these answers renders 50% of the book as useless! Its just not worth the hassle, or the money or the time it takes to try and resolve the issue.
I recommend Business Accounts (4th ED) osborne books, ISBN 978-1-905777-92-1. (they also have customer helpline, email and web printed on the back cover of the book, so its easy to find)
I downloaded the additional solutions within 10 minutes of logging on the their website
