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 in addition to serving 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.
Just make sure to get the latest edition.

0133049345 / 9780133049343 NEW MyAccountingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card -- for Financial Accounting
I ordered this item through amazon prime, free 2-day shipping. The first problem I had was the shipping delay. Though it arrived the day after it shipped, it did not ship until September 4, 2 weeks after the class I needed it for had begun. This was my own problem, however, as the order confirmation included the delay, but I did not notice until a few days after I placed the order.
The real problem with this order was the misleading book description. It DID NOT include the myAccountingLab access card, which I need for my class. After speaking with amazon customer service, I found that even though the page I ordered it from said it was included, this was a description for the wrong product. In the box where you can select between the kindle, hardcover, and looseleaf versions of the text, you must click the minuscule plus sign next to looseleaf to see a more expensive version that includes the access code. There is no indication that this step is necessary to receive the code, and I would not have known had I not spoken with amazon customer service.
In short, you should look elsewhere to find this text. The shipping delay and missing access code were very irritating, but that aside, the loose leaf edition is just an unbound stack of 3-hole punched papers. Look for a new copy at your university bookstore, and save yourself a massive headache.
