As part of my Corporate Reporting and Governance module in BA (Hons) Accountancy and Finance this truly is a necessary book to help understand the basics, applying it in real terms and then becoming more advanced and confident in your professional attributes which hopefully, as prospect accountants, auditors or cheif executives you can apply.

With the constant adaption of new and changing International Accounting Standards (IASs) , the accountancy profession has had to evolve dramatically over the past decade. This book helps break down , section by section the implications of current IASs and the importance of each standard.

What I find particularly useful is the way author breaks down certain lengthy calculations in a step by step format, all you have to do is familiarise yourself with the steps and then apply to tutorial work, text book questions and in the EXAM! From calculating Basic Earnings per Shares (BEPS) to recognising bonus and rights issues, this book truly is amazing in the way it helps break down these sometimes, complexities.

There are many extracts from company accounts such as Wal-Mart which basically quote the different policies adapted, this is particularly useful when you are trying to understand the relevance of some learning in lectures. Important policies include 'Inventory' and the method to adapt in the valuation of inventory; the book breaks down the effects on profit particularly with inventory.

It's a high quality, visual book and I would highly recommend it.

This book would be ideal if you had answers to the numerous test questions at the end of each chapter. However there are no answers available unless you have the Lecturers Book (unavailable unless you are a College/University). This poses a huge problem for those who wish to use this book for self study. There is the option of using the MyAccounting Lab, details of which are given when purchasing this book. However not all the questions in the book are given on-line so not all solutions are given.
This book is definitely not for the novice at financial accounting as it proceeds at a great pace from the basics to advanced levels.

Actually I am gonna describe this book as not very readable. It is hard to get the idea it was trying to convey.

I would thoroughly recommend this first class reference for both students and experienced accountants alike. Many organisations have their own accounting practices, which have developed and this reference is as good a guide as any to bringing poor practices back in line.

I do really consider that it is great for university student to study Accounting. The quality of book is pretty good, the content is particular and useful, the services such as online courses are also helpful for students.
