I am not aspiring to become a CPA or anything but only looking to get a certificate in Accounting and this is a course i need to take.
Its not the greatest text book on the subject,
Too condensed, not many examples.

The layout is not my choice, Its like reading a book, paragraph form which is not the greatest idea to present accounting concepts.

It is an ok book, look elsewhere if you can
