Editorial Reviews

About the Author

The powerful author team of the Horngren/Harrison franchise is comprised of Charles Horngren and Tom Harrison.  Both highly respected professors in academia and in the accounting industry, they joined together to write a text to provide students with a solid foundation of the principles of accounting.   Accounting was the first text to tie accounting concepts to the business reasons behind them.  Charles and Tom recognized that most students will USE accounting information, not simply create it.  In Accounting, the authors talk to the business person or the USER of the accounting information, which engages the non-major, business student. Over the years, the Accounting  franchise became a trusted, tried and true choice for instructors who wanted their students to learn accounting with the traditional framework but with modern application.

 

For the 8th edition, Horngren and Harrison invited Suzanne Oliver to join the already solid author team.  Suzanne Oliver brings her detailed knowledge of the series from her years of active use of the text in her courses and also as an author of the MyAccountingLab content and instructor resources.  In addition, Suzanne contributes an invaluable element of her teaching experience at community colleges and in varied classroom environments (traditional, hybrid and online). Together, the author team’s goal was to retain the traditional, solid accounting foundation of the text while adding a modern Table of Contents and fresh new approach to reach today’s students.  This revision of the text further strengthens the textbook component of the Student Learning System and provides consistency for students throughout the text, the study resources and MyAccountingLab.

If your Principles of Accounting I & II courses in college aren't using this book, your professors should be fired. University of Maryland uses an inferior book. Prince George's Community College uses this one. This book is essential for understanding the poorly written and almost ubiquitously used Intermediate Accounting book by Kieso. It is also great for using as a refresher for people like me that are studying for the CPA Exam. This book has these clear pages that show how transactions progress and how the financial statements interact with each other. Another cool thing about this book is that the lightbulb on the cover actually glows in the dark! This book is also used for some Managerial Accounting classes. That means some school use this book for 3 classes, talk about more bang for your buck!

This book has pretty clear step by step instructions and easy to find and follow examples. It is very useful when trying to do the problems in the book. The big downside is that this book is full of typos, missing information, and incorrect math. Each week my class finds something else that the book has messed up on. If you are a teacher looking to possibly use this book, I wouldn't, at least for this edition.

Each chapter is explained clearly and in detail; a very good read to understand accounting. There are many examples given in the book to help you understand the topic and every example is explained thoroughly.
At the end of each chapter, there are many problems and each problem is referenced to a specific topic in the chapter, so you can go to that section and read it if you don't know how to do the problem.
There might be a few typos and math errors, but who cares.

Recommended for self-learning about accounting or if you use it for a class, you are in great hands.
In summary, a clearly explained and detailed book that will help you learn the basics of financial and managerial accounting.

5/5 stars. Won't disappoint.

I used this book, 8th edition, for my Principles of Accounting I & II. It is clearly-written and well-explained the topic matter. Just read the textbook and do several problems, you will certainly pass any tests with an A.

There are several errors in this edition as well, mainly in the example illustrations. However, it does not bother you much as long as you understand the main concept.

It was everything I was expecting. I am 1/3 of the way through my accounting class, and this book, along with the exercises has proven to be an invaluable resource.
