Editorial Reviews


"I feel that the book is excellent for both the student who is preparing for the CPA exam and for the student who is preparing to become an analyst on Wall Street." -- Paul Zarowin, NYU

"This book makes a great tool to teach both Intermediate Accounting as well as Financial Statement Analysis. It is particularly useful as a single text that bridges across both these courses, as we use it at NYU." -- Partha Mohanram, NYU --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
"Financial Reporting and Analysis" by Revsine, Collins, and Johnson is a well written book, but in my opinion, because of Prentice Hall's unwillingness to publish the Student's Solutions Manual, I cannot recommend this book to those who want to learn, or relearn, on their own, the subject that it teaches.
Part of a student's learning process lies in doing the exercises, problems, and cases at the end of each chapter, but how will a student know if he is solving the problems correctly if there are no means with which to compare his answers to? I have visited the publisher's web site, to see if the Student's Solutions Manual is available, and it is not available.
When I learned introductory managerial accounting, I used "Financial and Managerial Accounting", published by South-Western College ([...] and it contained answers to some of the problems within the textbook. I had to learn managerial accounting on my own without a teacher, and this book made that possible. I still have this book, and I use it for reference purposes.
There is no way I can fully learn intermediate accounting on my own with "Financial Reporting and Analysis" because the Student's Solutions Manual is not available. It is similar to shooting with a rifle at a target and not knowing where your bullets are hitting.

I'm studying for the CPA. I bought the book because it's required for a course in school. But to actually learn for the CPA exam, I'll toss this one aside for one that provides a solutions manual. Authors who withold the manual for the instructors benefit miss a fundamental point about economics - who the customer is. It's the student that the book is written for and it is the student who pays for the course. Breffni University of Chicago

I agree with those that say this book would be more useful if it came with solutions. Right off in the first chapter, hypothetical situations are presented without any background information in the text. If you haven't had some experience in Accounting, you are going to be left scratching your head. The instructor in my class says that it causes you to think. Hard to think if you have never come close to experiencing anything that is being discussed. Some guidance would be helpful.
