You'll be lucky if the professor is permissive enough to go with an older series because most students quickly sell these books once the course is over, so used editions are MUCH cheaper. But most professors insist on the most recent edition. I think they're motivated because their authority rests on being up to date. In this 13th edition, there's a big emphasis on International Accounting Standards, and you can be sure the professors want to bone up on this themselves. The financial meltdown has discredited the whole U.S. financial complex, and one result is that the pull is now stronger toward international accounting standards rather than U.S. GAAP. Also, the authors anticipate that everyone wants to use the cheaper previous edition, so they always change the end of chapter problems.Read more ›
It is very comprehensive and the end of chapter questions are extensive. If you can more or less master this book...you're ready for accountancy. If you just can't "get" the material, maybe another career choice is better.
The writing style is hardly "reader friendly" but it isn't too stiff, has lots of examples and charts and tables, and is broken up into many "little" sections. Any instructor / course would be insane to have someone try to get through the material properly in just one semester. It's a 2 semester book, for sure.
A relative had the author as an instrtucor in college and told me Kieso was just as obtuse in class and expected students to know more than they should at that level of accounting instruction. Thank goodness there are other, student friendly Intermediate Accounting textbooks. such as the one by Dy Dyckman. Dyckman's book was the best out of the 4 that I purchsed and got me through the 3 Intermediate Accounting classes I have recently completed.
