Man, how I initially hated this course. However, the textbook is very clear and offers good examples. I also recommend signing up for the online component (as our instructor required) because the additional practice and reference materials are actually helpful. If you're need a textbook to teach yourself accounting or to teach others, I think you do a self-guided course with this book.

Downside, it's freaking huge and quite heavy. Not bookbag friendly. There are versions that are sold as binder sheets so you could just take the evening's assigned chapters to class.

I used this book for 2 accounting classes and as a reference for 2 others. It's well laid out, though wordy at times, and provides clear examples to follow, though I think it helps to have some accounting background (like a basic college accounting class) to get the most out of it. In fact, I like this textbook so much I finally just bought a used copy. Since I don't perform all the duties of an accountant every day, I use this a reference and resource book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who needs to a reference or a refresher for accounting practices (even my accounting professor keeps an extra copy in her business office for that purpose).

Great book! I am still in my managerial accounting class and find this book easy to guide students in understanding how important managerial accounting is in business. The supplemental guide WyleyPlus is highly recommended and compliments this book well! Will help students, who are not accounting experts, the guidance needed in understanding the course you are taking. Equations are easy to follow and there are tons of problems and examples to help a student through the chapters.

This was the textbook for my first-ever accounting class, and it surely did not disappoint. The chapters may be long and detailed, but they're easy to understand. There are plenty of charts and other visuals to help you understand the concepts more easily. And, there are plenty of exercises of all types at the end of each chapter, as well as exercise materials in the middle of chapters so you can instantly review and apply what you've just learned. The professor I had for my Principles of Accounting class was really great on his own, and this book was a great supplement, as reading the material independently helps me process it more easily.

This is the Oakton Community College version of the book. I haven't seen other versions of this textbook before, so let me just summarize what the Oakton version looks like, in case it will work for you. The definitions for key terms are not at the end of the book, but rather at the end of every chapter. There are 13 chapters and 5 appendices, and they are:
1: Introduction to Financial Statements
2: A Further Look at Financial Statements
3: The Accounting Information System
4: Accrual Accounting Concepts
5: Merchandising Operations and the Multiple-Step Income Statement
6: Reporting and Analyzing Inventory
7: Fraud, Internal Control, and Cash
8: Reporting and Analyzing Receivables
9: Reporting and Analyzing Long-Lived Assets
10: Reporting and Analyzing Liabilities
11: Reporting and Analyzing Stockholders' Equity
12: Statement of Cash Flows
13: Financial Analysis: The Big Picture
Appendix A: Specimen Financial Statements: Tootsie Roll Industries, Inc.
Appendix B: Specimen Financial Statements: The Hershey Company
Appendix C: Specimen Financial Statements: Zetar plc
Appendix D: Time Value of Money
Appendix E: Reporting and Analyzing Investments

If you take this class at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines or Skokie, IL, then you will probably have to read 11 or 12 of the 13 chapters, and 1 or 2 of the 5 appendices.

The book is in great, perfect condition.. But it is missing 33 pages! I am missing pages 321-352 and they were pages necessary to complete my homework. I had to ask a peer to borrow their book so I could do my homework for Chapter 7. It does not look like the pages were ripped out. It simply looks like they were never there. I am not sure who to complain about this but I am not happy.M

Once again, book was received in excellent condition so I commend the seller. The price was also fair so I have nothing to complain about there and finally the book was delivered in less than a week. Good job from the seller.

I will preface my review of the book itself by saying that I am extremely averse to all things accounting and I did not receive a CD with the book (which may have answers to some of my concerns).

That being said, this book does a better job (than other accounting books I have used) at laying out a systematic study roadmap which allows even the most reticent students as myself, to grasp the major concepts and follow the general thought process of the writers.
This may sound elementary however, I think it is worth mentioning that for managerial accounting novices, the illustrations are priceless. These pictures truly speak a 1000 words and help you grasp what you are reading, Things you should know/review or check your understanding/study objectives/etc... really help drive the points home.
One thing I am not thrilled about is the authors inability to translate managerial accounting and general accounting jargon into plain English for the non-accounting crowd. I find that the definition and/or explanation of certain key concepts could be reduced to fewer simpler words and yet have the same effect. The answers to problems could also use some examples.
The good news is that the mathematical examples that are tied to these concepts are often continuous (meaning, you see the same company being used in a continuous series of examples so you build upon your understanding and can literally visually track backwards if/when you get lost.)
