Book Description

January 14, 2011 0132109174 978-0132109178 14th
The text that defined the cost accounting market.

Horngren’s Cost Accounting defined the cost accounting market and continues to innovate today by consistently integrating the most current practice and theory into the text. This acclaimed, market-leading text emphasizes the basic theme of “different costs for different purposes,” and reaches beyond cost accounting procedures to consider concepts, analyses, and management.

By Dan K
I used this for a managerial course this past summer. First of all, this book is overpriced. Secondly, it is very dry, uninteresting, and a pain to read. The 13th edition covers the same material but the sneaky publishers changed up the numbers in the HW so you can't exactly use the 13th edition if the professor is assigning HW from the 14th. I think this is unethical and I think charging what they do for books like this should be a crime. Other than the HW, both editions cover the same material.

According to my professor and TA, this is an excellent book for managerial accounting. As a student, I am telling you that this book will frustrate you and make you angry because it is needlessly complicated. This is also compounded if you have poor instructors (like I had).

This is not a book you can use to teach yourself. You must go to class if you are using this book. After the first two chapters, the rest of the book will seem like a foreign language to you because it is all formula-based. Some people think that accounting is just adding and subtracting numbers; this book will dispel that myth by chapter three. The only way you are going to pass a class with this book is if you have talented professors or if you get yourself some tutoring. For example, in practice, the concept of ABC costing makes sense and I could probably explain it to you using some real world examples like manufacturing an iPhone or a similar popular product. This book takes ABC costing and it just makes it hard because it doesn't use real world examples and it does not take the extra step of simplifying the steps for you or giving you the bigger picture.

Each homework problem takes almost a half hour to complete and some of them are pretty hard.

1.0 out of 5 stars DOES NOT COME WITH CODE August 18, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book package does not come with the MyAccountingCode. Found out too late and had to buy it online for $50 for my class. Do yourself a favor and buy the book used then buy the code separately.

Good book otherwise.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Accounting Lab Code August 28, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was listed with accounting lab access. Amazon have received several complaints because the book did not come with the accounting lab code as it was originally listed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Two Device Limit is Absurd November 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book itself is fine. My issue is with the publisher's device limit policy.
Apparently if you buy it on Kindle, you can only read it on two devices at a time. Meaning I am unable to read this device on my tablet, my home PC and my work PC. For obvious reasons this is RIDICULOUSLY INCONVENIENT. I can't use my tablet at work, even in my unassigned time. So Kindle for PC is the only way to read my e-textbook. But since I've already used Kindle for PC on my home computer, and I use the Kindle app on my tablet, I cannot read this book on my PC at work. A two device limit is absurd, especially given how common it is for today's consumer to own and use multiple devices. Thanks to the publisher for making the pursuit of higher education just a little harder for a nontraditional student. You guys are real educational heroes.

Started buying used textbooks last year for college, and just recently rented one. No hassle, great sellers, and in the condition as described. What could be better?
