I started out knowing absolutely nothing about accounting, now I have a firm foundation thanks more to this excellent book than my professor ...
I will never sell this book
Horngren is mainly used by university students although Weygandt-Kieso-Kimmel have gained market share. But Horngren also recognizes that most financial accountants do not need an accounting degree. They need to understand accounting and know how to do their specific jobs. In fact, I've long noticed the small ratio of accountants working in accounting departments that actually have accounting degrees. For them, the Horngren Series is well-designed. But it still serves the needs of college students.
Horngren places emphasis on the accounting cycle. In doing so, this textbook covers the actual job duties within an accounting department quite efficiently. That's why I also purchase Horngren Series books. I purchase them for staff as well as additional resource material to help me prepare when I teach accounting courses at the university level. Because if its special niche and top-notch editing, I would expect this series to last through many more editions.
A note to the people complaining about not received the access code when buying used: used books generally don't come with access to the online labs. Some texts have free websites to accompany their books, but they won't specify having to use an access code to get into those sites. Access code = limited access to those who pay a bunch of money for new editions and codes.
