Regardless, I think there still needs to be more work done on this book.
Kristopher L. Simons
This is a poorly written textbook; rambling and fragmented information is presented on a piecemeal basis rather than in a clear, concise and well-organized manner.
4.0 gpa student
Also the 11th Edition and the 12th edition is the same book, and thus many of the problems were the same except for the referenced dates.

Clearly written. Although it assumes some basic knowledge about accounting, the writing technique is such that there is very little background knowledge that you have to go refresh yourself with in order to make sense of the new information. For a novice at accounting like me, this was easy to understand, with good examples and illustrations.

I took this course on line and this is not the textbook to use. I just want to add that I ended up earning an A, I don't want anyone to think that I am blaming the book for a poor grade. A few of the chapters were very poorly written and the subject matter hard to follow. Some of the problems were so mixed up and time consuming that the time I spent digging out the pertinent information needed to solve the problem, could have been used to learn the material and acquire a better understanding of it as well.
Also the 11th Edition and the 12th edition is the same book, and thus many of the problems were the same except for the referenced dates. It is really a shame that colleges do not do their homework and give the student a break financially ($ 100.00 dollar difference or more.)There is no reason for them to demand the students to purchase a newer version when the older version would have sufficed.
I would strongly recommend to purchase the accompanying STUDENT GUIDE. This was not a requirement, but well worth the money. I will add that it did help me earn that A.

Format: Hardcover
I normally don't post reviews but I just finished up using this book for a class and highly dislike it. I think the reasoning with how they illustrate problems is confusing and terms are mixed up with bold or plain print. My professor even said he did not like this textbook and wished there was a better choice out there. I thought the homework was good but there were some points that it didn't make sense at all. My biggest pet peave had to deal with the Economic Ordering Quantity stuff in chapter 20. I read the chapter twice and still didn't understand the function of EOQ. I eventually found a powerpoint online which explained it. I think this book has potential and obviously the amount of time invested with the supplementary material is amazing. Regardless, I think there still needs to be more work done on this book. Good luck using this book in your class wherever you're forced to use it.

Format: Hardcover
The writers of this book present a lot of material; however, they do so in a manner that may cause confusion and a general dislike of the material. Presentation is verbose, often using paragraphs to explain concepts that could be stated in one sentence. While some sidebars present necessary information, many of them are simply advertisements for the publisher's study guide.

I am a MBA candidate in US and will return to Japan next year.

My background is engineer in Japanese manufacturing company.

Even now, this textbook teaches us powerful tools and especially in factory accounting. The knowledge for budgeting and how to evaluate it will help me in the future.

I will bring this book back to Japan and try to use it in the real world!!

I am not sure whether my negative perception of this book arises more from my disliking the book or the subject matter, but I felt like I had trouble learning from it as well as I have from other textbooks. I generally rely on the text to clarify anything I missed from a professor's lecture, but this one was not that helpful for me. I'm sure this is related to the fact that I am absolutely horrible at accounting, but I was hoping that the textbook could save me and teach me whatever I was missing in class... no such luck!

It was super cheap, we used it for a cost accounting class at the University, but many of the chapters were quite confusing to read and decipher exactly what was being presented to us. Our professor has written new chapters to substitute the ones found in this book. quite frustrated with this book.
