Format: Hardcover
As a professor who teaches this topic at both the undergraduate and graduate level, I feel that this text is without a doubt the most cleanly written and well thought-out text there is on this topic. While you might find books out there that are more comprehensive and attempt to cover more material, and ones that might delve into levels of detail and complication in terms of computations, there is simply none better in terms of readability. As a Socratic professor, this is KEY to having my students fully prepared for class.

If you are looking for a "how to" style book with a "preparer emphasis" however, I recommend you look elsewhere to something like Hansen, Noreen or Garrison. The focus on this book is DISTINCTIVELY critical thinking and problem solving concepts, which can be frustrating if you are looking for a "how to manual". Instead, this book focuses on the "why", and does leave more of the "how" to the student and professor than many others.

The book has a very conceptual approach and it's handling of both ethical AND cultural factors involved in the management accounting process is second to none.

For an MBA course looking for a superbly-written book that students can and will read, seeking to blend great conceptual content with the development of critical thinking skills and a true global impact, you simply cannot - and I repeat - cannot beat the new edition of this book - period.

This book contained very good example problems, exhibits and case studies. They assisted me with passing my MBA course; however, this text was one of my least favorite books. The flow of the material was 'choppy', lacked congruence and was very sterile in its presentation. However the text was required for my course. While I read the assigned material, it helped me tremendously to supplement my reading with other Managerial Accounting textbooks.

The content is the same as the last edition. The publisher has only changed numbers in the problems at the end of the chapter. It's very unfortunate that publishers take advantage of students like this

When you first open the document everything seems great. Then you look at you syllabus and it says to read pages 44-60 so you try looking for the pages and all you see is a percentage and a location number.....not so bad, right? Maybe the location numbers closely match the page numbers.....sorry, there are 22k locations in the book that is 640 pages long.

Not only does it makes it impossible to read what is listed on your syllabus but absolutely worthless to try and follow the teacher in class when he refers to any page numbers.

I will never purchase another kindle book and would return this if the semester had not already started and I need it to study. Guess I will be reading every page of the book despite the fact it is not necessary.

Hard to read, does not have enough sample problems. This text book is for people with an account background as an undergrad. If your undergrad is not accounting, this book does not provide the foundational material that would allow you to read it! To clarify, I did take two undergrad accounting course and to well in both and felt I mastered the material. This book was just to advance and hard to read! Worthless!

I have no opinion on the book, by reading the book I received an A in the class. This is a subjective review because the class pretty much followed the book, so the book was necessary to pass the class.

Poorly constructed problems and poor grammar throughout the textbook. Typos render some problems useless (on one occasion beginning inventory is stated as 24,000 units when it should clearly be 2,400 for the problem to make sense). The authors did not put enough effort into this.

This is a great asset for the class I am currently taking. I definitely think I am going to purchase this book. It provides great examples that the most novice managerial accountant can understand.
