This book makes easy concepts difficult to understand. Most of my learning for my Managerial Accounting course was achieved by studying other books. I am surprised that there a any positive reviews on this site. They must be from the family members of the author. My class opinion was universal, this is a very poorly written book. If you are a professor looking to select a book for your class, please do your students a favor and do not select this one.

The best way for me to learn a subject is to read the book on top of what we discussed in class. I read almost all chapters in the book and I really enjoyed the style the authors used. Every chapter starts with a real dilemma and a solution is worked through the chapter, clearly explaining the subject of the chapters.

I think the authors did a very good job of explaining easily some challenging topics. I specifically enjoyed the end of the chapter problems, which helped me a lot to develop some hands-on skills.
This book is for beginners, but it covers some advanced topics, as well. I really appreciate that my professor chose this book for his class.

All book highlighted by different bright colors~~ different from the description. Stopped to use it halfway of the semester, because I cannot distinguish my notes from the numerous former ones!

No missed pages.

The book came in great condition but I dropped the course before it started. So, I have not read the book. But, I do plan to take the course again next semester, and if the textbook has changed, then I just have to come up with the money to buy the new book.
