Another excellent book by the "Dummies" authors. That's the best part about all their books. They are written by pros who know that you "don't" talk down to those of us who are trying to glean information for our use. Well done.

Format: Paperback
I am reading this book as a refresher for a m.s. finance program. Accounting has never been my favorite subject but this text eases the pain by being simple and readable. This text brushes thorough most of the material 2 or 3 times in different sections which is a big plus for me. Does a good job of keeping the content real with examples and small business scenarios. I highly recommend this book.

I got this for my daughter for an Accounting class that she has dropped twice. Hopefully, she'll be able to complete the class now with a little help with down to earth terms she will understand.

Thanks,
Debbie

We have recently become part owners of an LLC. This accounting book has so far looked to be a great help for all of the accounting involved with this new company. Great idea to put 9 books in 1. Thank you!
