This book provides many excellent examples. As most Excel users know, finding things in the Excel help menu is often frustrating. This book goes step by step through many Excel features while setting up spreadsheets for accounting analysis and reporting. Assignments include topics such as the accounting cycle, internal control, financial statement analysis, and international operations. For beginning accounting students, this book is a must-have. Also, the book features a corresponding Web site with numerous example files and other helpful information.
