Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Designed specifically for active users of business data--rather than preparers of accounting information (bookkeepers), this self-study, self-paced introduction to financial accounting uses an interactive programmed approach to present the ideas and terminology essential to an understanding of balance sheets, income statements, and statements of cash flows. Every frame requires readers to actively solve a problem involving accounting information--e.g., selecting a correct word from two choices, providing an answer, making a journal entry, or preparing a complete balance sheet. Includes the most recent pronouncements of the Financial Accounting Standards Board. The Balance Sheet. Balance Sheet Changes; Income Measurement. Accounting Records and Systems. Revenues and Monetary Assets. Expense Measurement; The Income Statement. Inventories and Cost of Sales. Noncurrent Assets and Depreciation. Liabilities and Equity. Statement of Cash Flows. Analysis of Financial Statements. A self-study manual for those in executive, vocational, or management training programs, and for new hires who are expected to have a knowledge of accounting, especially banks, investment firms, and consulting firms. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Concept of fundamental accounting principals were discussed in length giving pertinent examples. Balance sheet, cash flow and financial statements. Learning the language of acounting is presented in an easy to read format. I have gained good insight into the language of accounting. It's a good book to understand the fundamentals. I recommend to any one who is interested to learn the language of accounting.

This realtively short book is a good place to review accounting principles and terminology with excellent examples provided covering Balance sheets, income statements, cash flow reports, etc. This was used as a supplementary text in a course I just completed that was sponsered by a Society of Financial Analysts and used in conjunction with the other material provided by the instructor this book was quite helpful. I will continue to use it as reference. However if you are looking for detailed training in accounting this is NOT the book to choose.

I am a software engineer who needed to learn the basics of accounting in a hurry. If you know nothing about accounting, this book is for you. It is a small, thin (150pp) book that gives you 'just the facts' with simple real world examples (i.e. why is 7up an asset but Coca Cola is not?)
