So easy to understand and this is coming from someone who was HIGHLY anxious that I wouldn't understand the material. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and I especially liked the charts and graphics. There's a flip page in the middle that is on transparent paper that is really cool for showing step by step how the balance sheet, income statement, adjustment sheets etc all effect each other. And the clear pages help you see the step without the distraction of the next step. It's sort of hard to explain but I really loved accounting because of this book. Others that I'd tried were so bland and boring to read. Also the book is tall and thin-ish, and has lots of appendices and examples next to and after the text so it's way easier to get through seemingly long reading assignments.

I bought this book because I am taking a course online and the company still uses it. Further, the hardcopy was surprisingly cheaper than the E-book...Well, there is a simple reason for this and I believe that this book should be sold for 1$ today, since it's out of printing! Hence, you cannot check the problem and test results online. How great!
In sum, this 5kg book is doing its job and it's pretty easy to follow - yet, companies/ed. centers should start either using the newest edition or providing the results.

Loved the book.
This is my major and this book is so useful.
Its pretty heavy thought.
A little highlighting but okay since it was highlighted what is important to remember.

This Fundamental Accounting Principles textbook was very well done. It's the 17th edition and like all textbooks having gone through so many editions, benefits from extensive editing. It may be a lost gem because I don't see that it was updated after 2007.

This 1,132 page hardcover text was widely used and had everything one would expect in a financial accounting I book. The Kieso series became dominant but this remains a great textbook. I use it as a resource because I occasionally teach a university accounting course, particularly financial accounting I. The explanations and problems are with few exceptions still fresh and relevant. It's too bad it uses the previous year's Krispy Kreme financials since that company fell from glory.

I'd recommend this text to anybody needing additional resource materials. It remains excellent.

This book is great. Use the online resources! My professor is old school and made no mention of those resources. Had I not taken the time to figure them out and make use of them, I may not have passed the class. The narrated PowerPoint's were particularly helpful.

I had to purchase this book for use in two of my accounting principles courses and it ended up being the most dry and yawn-inducing book I've ever had the DISpleasure of reading. If you're a teacher and looking for a book for your ACCT I or II course, skip over this one.
