5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently Insightful and easy to read
I have been using QuickBooks for the last 5 years and I recently became a quickbooks pro advisor and have access to Intuit training and support information. Despite that I would buy this book every year! It is well written - providing a lot of practical information and basic examples of why you would or would not use certain features. The advantage with third party books...

This review is from: QuickBooks 2009: The Missing Manual (Paperback)
I have been using QuickBooks for the last 5 years and I recently became a quickbooks pro advisor and have access to Intuit training and support information. Despite that I would buy this book every year! It is well written - providing a lot of practical information and basic examples of why you would or would not use certain features. The advantage with third party books is that they will tell you when a feature does not work the best and will tell you work arounds. I use this as a reference book, and to refresh me on features I may not be using. I seem always to learn a new tid bit whenever I pick it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Guidebook, April 3, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: QuickBooks 2009: The Missing Manual (Paperback)
I love this book! I have no formal training in accounting, but I don't need it thanks to The Missing Manual. Basic concepts are explained in a lively, conversational style, and if you already know that material you could skip around to what you need with ease. Don't give up on QuickBooks Pro 2009 until you get this book! NOTE: Does NOT cover the Mac version of QuickBooks.

2.0 out of 5 stars dissapointed - no help to my business, September 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: QuickBooks 2009: The Missing Manual (Paperback)
Have been using Quickbooks for three years and want to move beyond basic record keeping (expenses, income & payroll) and into more analysis of my business practices - job profitability, etc. This book seems great in telling you what you can do within the Quickbooks program, but little guidance in applying it to real life situations. For a Quickbooks beginner its probably too complex and for an experienced user trying to improve their skills, too simple.

This review is from: QuickBooks 2009: The Missing Manual (Paperback)
I love this book! I was sinking in a quagmire of Quickbooks errors. After I got this book I started over, and I have found answers to all of my questions here. It is so easy to do the bookkeeping after everything is set up correctly and this book helps you to do that. My copy is marked and highlighted and flagged and obviously frequently used as a reference. Indispensable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really helps to have this book, July 25, 2009

This review is from: QuickBooks 2009: The Missing Manual (Paperback)
This is a good book as far as quick books goes. It had some insight that the "Official Guide" did not have. I would have to recommend it along with the other two if you are serious about understanding this program. Do youself a favor and buy the other two books. QuickBooks 2009 The Official Guide, and QuickBooks 2009 Solutions Guide to go along with it. One of those three will most likely have the answers that you are looking for.

This review is from: QuickBooks 2009: The Missing Manual (Paperback)
This manual is a very useful, adjunct informational tool for running QuickBooks efficiently. I discovered many entries that needed correcting and this book helped me restructure my QuickBooks. I found more efficient ways to modify my reports and it has made a huge difference in my tracking expenses. I recommend this book to the beginner and moderate user. It helps the user go from novice to pro. The language is clear and easy to follow. Not a technical manual by any means. I would describe it as practical and useful for all levels of user.
