Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book gives a good overview of Quickbooks 2014 and how it can and should be used in the life of a small business. It is not an introduction to accounting, an introduction to computers, or an introduction to business management. It focuses on how to use Quickbooks, and that's it -- installation, setup, daily use, and some health-checking of a business.

The good thing about this book is that it is divided into logical chunks that make it more of a desktop reference than a book that you should read through once and forget about. Can't remember how to receive inventory correctly? Never used job tracking before, but now you need to? Need to start tracking mileage on a vehicle? These are the kinds of things you can find quickly in here.

My main criticism of this book is the very limited discussion of accounting principles. Most of Quickbooks itself is actually pretty intuitive once it's up and running, but even basic accounting is very confusing for people who aren't familiar with it. Concepts like debits and credits, equity, the relationship between assets, liabilities, and equity, and so on just aren't explained enough to click with people who aren't already somewhat familiar with them.

All considered: if you need to learn how to use Quickbooks or want a handy desk reference, this is a great book. If you need a crash course in accounting, look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you already have QuickBooks set up and you’re just upgrading to version 2014, then QuickBooks 2014 For Dummies will help you with all the new features and changes from previous versions. However, if you’re starting from the beginning to set up your company or want to learn accounting principals, you may want to get a couple more books to work along side this one. If you’re a beginner with QuickBooks, I would suggest a more straightforward style rather than the “fun” style of the Dummies books. One of the best suggestions in the book is to check with an accountant, if you’ve never used QuickBooks ,as your business may need some specific accounts set up. Three hours with an accountant could save you lots of time in the long run not having to redo or reset up your company. This is a very good book to use as a reference manual, which is what I’m using it for.

I use quickbooks daily as the treasurer/bookkeeper for a small corporation. My accountant's bookkeeper got me started but here is the missing manual that I never had! I am certainly pleased to have this book - I didn't read it through but it's served well as a sort of reference for when I have a quick question and don't feel like wasting time navigating for the unfriendly "online help."

When the business software my company has used for the past twenty years was no longer supported I was referred to quick books. This guide is a definite must to ease the pain of learning something new while trying to maintain and run a business. Highly recommend it.

Since there was nothing in the description or the cover that indicated this was only for Windows users, I had no idea until I bought it that it didn't include the Mac version. Not only that, the only thing at all in the book that indicated that was a note in the introduction that the author is assuming the reader is running Windows. I was also unable to return it, because by the time I discovered that the return window had expired.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
QuickBooks is one of those programs business owners use as a necessity. Myself, I own a small firm with relatively simple accounting requirements. That said, relatively simply doesn't mean easy-breezy. It only means I don't have a company with hundreds of employees with dozens of properties and products and all the financials which goes with it. In theory, I can do this myself with QuickBooks.

That's the good news about QuickBooks. The bad news is I need to learn the software in the midst of taking care of what I do best. That's why QuickBooks 2014 For Dummies matters. It fills in the blanks and helps speed me past the aspects of the program I don't need.

QuickBooks 2014 For Dummies is, obviously, a Dummies book. This affords it a great structure by a publisher which understands the neat mix of entry-level and expert knowledge the reader must have to know the program.

For me, I found its guidance through set-up helpful: how to create a business account, how to add clients, invoicing and other basics. That's what I most use it for.

From there, I'm better able to understand my work, track payments and bills and such.

I'm using, "QuickBooks 2014: The Missing Manual: The Official Intuit Guide to QuickBooks 2014" aside, but have found the Dummies book easier for me. Maybe it is that I'm more familiar with its style, or that I chose to use it first. Both are more than adequate.

QuickBooks 2014 For Dummies gets me there and so I fully recommend it.

This book is more geared for someone switching to QuickBooks 2014 (either from a previous version of QuickBooks or a different bookeeping method altogether). I'm new to accounting and was hoping for a book that help me set up my company from scratch. I can read between the lines to figure it out, but this book wasn't ideal for my situation.

If you're already familiar with QB or already have accounting methods established, this book is for you. Otherwise, I'd recommend another one.
