I have a bachelor degree in accounting and have been out of school for a couple of years. I bought this book for a friend and decided to read it myself. The simplicity of it actually helped me tie things together that I didn't fully grasp from college. As I read the concepts I kept saying to myself "oh I remember going over that in school" - however this book helped me to understand the why's of accounting which is very important instead of just memorization. Many professors do a poor job of explaining accounting and I think that's why so many students struggle with it. If professors would explain the concepts like this author did then students wouldn't be so lost.

I took an accounting class last year and shamefully failed! I just could not understand the basic concepts to get from chapter to chapter. College Accounting classes for some reason expect you to have some basic understanding but I didn't and I'm sure there are many like me. So I bought this and other book to see if it would help. So far this is the only book that I understand. And everything seems to make sense to me now. I would recommend this book to anyone who's planning on taking an accounting course for the first time. I plan on retaking the class and now I feel confident going back in. THANK YOU MR.PIPER!!!

I am currently enrolled in a college Account course and picked this book up to supplement the $137 textbook that is required for the course. It took me 1 1/2 hours to read this book in one sitting and it gave me a much better grasp on accounting than the textbook did. When we are doing exercises in class and I need a quick refresher on a topic I often refer to this text as opposed to the textbook as it is just so easy to grasp without overloading you with too much detail. Plus, I am doing well in the class and I attribute that to this book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to get up to speed on basic double-entry accounting and at $4.99 it is a no-brainer.

UPDATE: I finished the accounting class back in the spring and made an A. In fact, I had the highest grade in the class. Overall, I learned the material from three main sources: this book, my professor, and the exercises we did in class. Still love this book and highly recommend it as a pre-class read for college Accounting I classes.

This book gives you a quick tour of the ins and outs of accounting. Great introduction on the basics and keeps it simple. Short enough to be read in a day. I highly recommend this to any one looking for a crash course in accounting.
