Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed with this book. Having taught myself how to use Quickbooks with only the help files for assistance, I'd hoped to get more detail and insight from the book. However I found most of the awkward areas were too specific to the US market, and to date I haven't discovered a topic which isn't better explained in the help files. However, I will concede that a new user would probably feel more confident starting out if they had the book beside them, with its comments on entries which can be changed at a later date if necessary, so not to worry too much.

As a CPA and consultant, this is the book I tell my clients to buy. The author doesn't hesitate to discuss the inconsistencies and missing ingredients of the software, but then she provides some astonishing and useful workarounds. This book is more than a guide for using this software, it's a great reference for small business bookkeeping.

Well thought out & well presented, with some usefull insights and tips. Written for the American market, but has enough relevance for the UK too. Well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of All 18 Mar. 2000
By Robert Weiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I spent a long time in a bookstore reading through books on Quickbooks when I first installed the software. I knew in 1 minute this was the book I had to buy (from Amazon, it was cheaper than at the store).
Anyone counting on the other books is struggling harder with Quickbooks than those of us who were smart enough to buy this book. Kathy Ivens writes as if she knows you, and knows exactly the questions you have.
Her hints and tips about setting up the software are pure genius. She explains the bookkeeping theories behind every suggestion she makes.
This book is replete with real-life bookkeeping tasks and the best way to perform them - and why you should perform them that way. When she gives choices about doing transactions, she explains exactly what the ramifications are of each choice - so you can make decisions based on your own business, and your own bookkeeping needs.
This is a brilliant example of how to write a book about using software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this one first 21 Mar. 2000
By Philip A. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book after buying another book that wasn't very helpful. I should have bought this one first and saved myself time and aggravation.
This book does the best job of explaining Quickbooks and how it works, and what it does, and why it does it that way, and how to make it do things a different way if what you want to track in your bookkeeping is a little different.
The author not only knows Quickbooks, she knows accounting, and best of all, she understands how small businesses work. She knows that we don't all follow the same formula. By the time you finish reading a couple of sets of instructions in this book, you understand how much more flexible Quickbooks is than you thought (or than the authors of other books understand).
Buy this book and you'll have exactly the books and reports you need. Mrs. Ivens is an amazing writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A life saver 13 Mar. 2000
By Karen Frangiapani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The best thing about this book is that it saves you money on accountant fees. The writer explains the bookkeeping processes so well that you don't have to keep asking your accountant to set up the way transactions are handled, you can figure it out for yourself (and it's so clearly explained, you'll be right).
The next best thing about the book is all the tricks to get the software to do things exactly the way you need it to. If you're not a bookkeeper (and most small business owners aren't), some things aren't self-explanatory, such as how do I handle sales tax in more than one state. Not only does this book show you how to set up your books to handle these problems, but the writer walks you through the steps, explaining why you do it the way you do it.This is a bookkeeping education in addition to learning the ins and outs of Quickbooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goes beyond all other similar books 9 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The best thing about this book is all the great information that isn't available from QuickBooks -either the help files or the support site. Miss Ivens shows you how to work around the QuickBooks limitations, how to do things the help files say aren't supported in Quickbooks, and even gives realworld examples to make it easy to do the same things on your own books.
Her writing is clear as crystal and very conversational, so it's a pleasure to read the book. My accountant loved the fact that she explained what QuickBooks is doing in the background with the General Ledger when you create transactions. He went out and bought himself a copy, and is now recommending it to all his clients.
This book, filled with great tricks to get more out of Quickbooks, is also a good basic primer on understanding bookkeeping. This is the only book you need if you're running a business with Quickbooks - you can throw away the books that came with the software.
