Editorial Reviews

Review

"We have been using Heintz & Parry for some time. We like the overall design, the way the exercises and problems are setup. The key terms are very helpful. The self study objectives and the demonstrations problems are also very useful."

"The adjustment chapter is divided into two lectures - one the presentation of the adjusting entries and the second using the worksheet. I require my students to memorize the adjusting entries before they start the worksheet. THE WORKSHEET templates are the GREATEST. I find that the student who is lost can understand the worksheet."

"The competitive edge of the Heintz/ Parry book over others is (1) it is written at an understandable level and (2) the illustrations, figures, and examples are superior to any accounting textbook I have seen."

"I have used this text for many years, it is well illustrated and the design is always eye catching and the features are easy to use."

The College Accounting book is a good book to have, I recommend it. It's easy to read and follow. I like the real world accounting examples at the end of the each chapter. Every chapter builds upon the previous, adding more accounting terms and generaly accepted accounting principles. There are numerous examples of accounting forms and projects for different types of businesses. The publisher's website is also good, because you can do some hands on projects that are offered in the book and check how well you have completed that project. Without doing the hands on projects this book becomes just another reference source, so be worn do the projects.

The book I received is in good shape but I didn't receive the access code for CNOW that goes with it. I'm hoping it was just an error. I'd hate to have to go buy it when it was supposed to be with it.

I Bought this because my class made me use an E book for accounting. I didn't think much about it until the class started. Those stupid ebooks do not work with math classes. Somebody told me that before I bought the E book but I didn't listen. Well, I'm telling you now, there is no replacement for a real text in front of you when you need to see the whole spread sheet. This book made a difficult class very refershing. I have pity for those who drop out of distance learning courses when they use e books. Make you life simpler, get a real text when you do distance learning, much easier and much more rewrding. Take your E books and shove them where the sun don't shine, oops, I forgot, you can't do that with a ebook unless you are shoving the ipad ir kindle er something.

The actual textbook is more helpful and a better choice than using digital text. Everything about the book met my expectations. The book arrived on-time and in great condition. Thanks Amazon!
