What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"In a clear, concise fashion Professor Haber summarizes the essential mechanics of financial accounting in a book suitable as a study guide for, or review of, most major texts. The easy-to-follow examples flow naturally through the accounting process, from identifying the elements of a transaction through the final double underline in the financial statements." — Leon J. Hanouille Ph.D., CPA, Assistant Professor, Joseph I. Lubin School of Accounting, Martin J. Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University

"This book should be required reading for newly enrolled accounting students. It would also be quite useful to business executives who need to be familiar with accounting from both a macro and micro level. This book is a breath of fresh air." — Michael McNee, CPA, Partner, Marks Paneth & Shron LLP

my accounting class felt more like Mandarin Chinese for the English speaker than basic accounting. THis booki helped clarify defintions and procedures so that I could pay attention to the material presented in class. It is agreat tool and a shortcut for long boring texts.
