Format: Hardcover
Except for having to buy it new, there are reasons to like the Kieso series including this 13th edition of Intermediate Accounting, which is really Financial Accounting II. These authors have done everything to make the subject progressively more accessible in each edition. I know as I suffered through the courses once too. I have a master's in accounting and am a CPA. It's surprising how many accounting texts assume the student has certain prerequisite skills and knowledge and equally surprising how so many accounting professors want to lecture on what enhances their knowledge base instead of teaching to the student. The Kieso books are really teaching books. I buy used recent editions for myself just for reference since they're so well done and so cheap. Not all CPAs do that but I practice financial accounting.

You'll be lucky if the professor is permissive enough to go with an older series because most students quickly sell these books once the course is over, so used editions are MUCH cheaper. But most professors insist on the most recent edition. I think they're motivated because their authority rests on being up to date. In this 13th edition, there's a big emphasis on International Accounting Standards, and you can be sure the professors want to bone up on this themselves. The financial meltdown has discredited the whole U.S. financial complex, and one result is that the pull is now stronger toward international accounting standards rather than U.S. GAAP. Also, the authors anticipate that everyone wants to use the cheaper previous edition, so they always change the end of chapter problems.

This is an excellent book, very well written and comprehensive. However, without an instructor or a complete solutions manual, this book is impossible to use! When are authors and publishers going to learn that a beautifully thoughtout set of exercises is utterly worthless in a quantitative subject like Accounting without the solutions available! I'm presently taking a course from this book, however I would never buy this book for personal use - no answers!

It only covers chapters 1-14 as the other reviews has stated, and is a bit expensive.

However, I got an "A" in my intermediate accounting class, and this guide helped a lot.

It don't replace reading the book, but does give a lot of extra problems and exercises (true/false, and multiple choice) to give more practice and understanding for the test.

I found the solutions to be correct and very few mistakes. When a true/false is false, it gives you the reason why, and on the multiple choice, gives you the reason why the correct choice is correct and why the others are wrong.

The brief review does not begin to cover everything in the chapter, and you will not even be able to complete the exercises/problems with just the chapter review. So, don't feel this will replace the textbook.

If you have the money, I recommend this study guide.

I was skeptical when I bought this but it is worth it. It gives you tips, example problems and shows, you how to break them down step by step. The only shortcoming is that the book does not cover every type of problem in each chapter. It does give you a good hint on at least how to start.

There are great examples and problems to help you, but it only covers chapters 1-14. I could not find anywhere where it said it only covered half the book. Still I would say it is worth buying.

Iam an Asian-Indian,who came to the United States recently.Iam a B.Com graduate and M.B.A specialising in Finance.After years of specialising in Accounting and Finance in the British system,I was totally lost when I came to the US ,when I tried to improve my qualifications to an American C.P.A. I needed to go through and practice problems in the American system of accounting. I was wandering aimlessly and without any help into the websites selling books trying to match the ones that meet my requirements for a CPA exam.Finally I approached a friend at work who was formerly teaching at a local school.She recommended "Self study problems and solutions to accompany Intermediate accounting" by Keiso and Weygandt.
I bought both the volumes of that book,It is a great book for self study. It starts with the very basics of introducing the conceptual framework of accounting and basic chapters like Recivables accounting,Cashflows,inventory accounting,Accounting for assets and current liabilities in its 1st Volume to more complex chapters like retained earnings,accounting for income taxes and for Retirement benefits in the 2nd Volume.
It was of immense help to me not only to brush up my fundamental concepts but also to work out several problems and compare them with the solutions provided and to make myself stong in intermediate accounting. Thanks to Keiso and Wegandt, I can now sit for my exam with confidence. I would highly recommend this book to all intermediate students and to students from other countries such as myself.
