I did connect to the online portion and there are helpful quizzes and other problems, including some Excel spreadsheets for some of the exercises at the end of each chapter. My instructor did not have a full a subscription, so some of the material wasn't available, but what I could access was very helpful, especially in preparation for the mid-term and final.
I will preface my review of the book itself by saying that I am extremely averse to all things accounting and I did not receive a CD with the book (which may have answers to some of my concerns).
That being said, this book does a better job (than other accounting books I have used) at laying out a systematic study roadmap which allows even the most reticent students as myself, to grasp the major concepts and follow the general thought process of the writers.
This may sound elementary however, I think it is worth mentioning that for managerial accounting novices, the illustrations are priceless. These pictures truly speak a 1000 words and help you grasp what you are reading, Things you should know/review or check your understanding/study objectives/etc... really help drive the points home.
One thing I am not thrilled about is the authors inability to translate managerial accounting and general accounting jargon into plain English for the non-accounting crowd. I find that the definition and/or explanation of certain key concepts could be reduced to fewer simpler words and yet have the same effect. The answers to problems could also use some examples.
The good news is that the mathematical examples that are tied to these concepts are often continuous (meaning, you see the same company being used in a continuous series of examples so you build upon your understanding and can literally visually track backwards if/when you get lost.)
