Not recommended, try Melville instead,
This review is from: Financial Accounting and Reporting MyAccountingLab Pack (Paperback)
This is the recommended textbook for our third year accountancy course at university. I took one look and decided to stick with my Melville textbook from previous years. It's written in an extreemly complicated way, whereas Melville is simple and easy to follow. I had no accounting experience before I started the coure, but I'm on track to achieve a first, so it's not that I'm lacking the intelligence to understand the theory!
Many of the other students on the course did buy the textbook. They said that it includes way too much information that isn't required, and doesn't help you understand the topic any better (Melville is just stripped back to the essentials). Others have said that it confused them and they've moved on to different textbooks.
I would say that if you have mastered the basics and you want more in depth reading then this does offer more than the Melville textbook. It depends on what level your course is at.
Simply put: too cluttered and too much irrelevant information for beginners, but useful if you want extra reading.
