Several years ago, I taught Excel classes, but the focus was on the application and the features. Now, as an accounting student, I am so glad Excel for Accounting is among my core requirements. I took the class before taking Managerial and Intermediate Accounting. Even if you can't take the class, GET THE BOOK!

The concept of placing all data in a separate location from your calculations was new to me. I have found it so easy to replace the data and watch Excel update the spreadsheets... This book includes building amortization schedules, depreciation schedules, aging schedules, horizontal and vertical financial statement analysis, and mega budget spreadsheets.

There is a storyline running through the book that is a little on the goofy side, and sometimes I found myself frustrated that the author didn't spend more page space explaining why I was doing what the step-by-step instructions told me to do. But if I took the time to think it through, it made sense and I probably remember better for having to reason through the process myself.

I started working through the last half of the book (Access) on my own, but had to set it aside as the spring semester got underway. I also taught Access, but I'm looking forward to seeing how to use it better for accounting purposes.

With the caveat that I haven't worked through the Access half, there isn't anything here peculiar to Excel 2010. It can be used just as easily with 2007 or 2013 (aka 365). I won't be selling or loaning this book out... it's on my keeper shelf for future reference!

I bought this for a college class and really have learned a lot so far. I'll probably keep it to use with my business

I bought this for a college accounting class. The material was good to learn expect there was not much in-depth technical information. For example, pivot tables were only mentioned in chapter one. The real problem is the instructor's text with answers to the end-of-chapter problems. There were numerous inconsistencies between the requirements from the student text and the answers from the instructor text. Very disappointed with this textbook.

Thank you for sending it out to me. It arrived very soon. I love the book and it is a great tool in getting hands on experience in excel accounting. I have not yet touched the Access piece but I am anticipating a great turn out in the product. 5 stars! I recommend it to any accounting major or anyone looking to get a grasp of accounting through excel.

Using Excel & Access for Accounting 2010 is a good way to learn software skills. Recommend it for those who have some basic skills in working with Excel and Access (databases). What I liked most about product is that the steps are easy to follow.
