This book makes accounting very simple to understand.
Javier Maldonado
Also there is a decent amount of repetition and overlapping concepts that unless you read some abstract sources, you may not be able to follow the materials.
sean hirsch
I would highly recommend this book, especially for college courses.

This book is usually required. As far as texts go, it's not bad. However, it's about 25 lbs. There is a version that is made to go in a 3 ring binder I would reccomend, cause you can just sling the chapters you need over you shoulder and leave the other 15 pounds at home.
Also, I had to buy an online thing to go with this that the new version comes with. It was $80, so factor that into your costs if your instructor will make you use Wiley Plus.

This book makes accounting quite easy to understand. The problems are broken up into confusing categories for each chapter (Summary exercises, brief exercises labeled BE, Exercises, Problem Set A, Problem Set B, etc) but the problems are quite helpful while not requiring too much unnecessary writing. I would highly recommend this book, especially for college courses.

This is the first textbook that I bought for my Kindle for business school and I am so glad I did. The Kindle edition is easy to read and easy to search, and made doing assignments and taking quizzes in my Accounting class that much easier. This is a very good accounting textbook that explains the concepts well and is easy to follow.

This book makes accounting very simple to understand. The exercises focus on what was learned on the corresponding chapters. It is simple and sort of layman in the use of language.
