Overview


Like the other titles in Barron's Business Review Series, the new sixth edition of Accounting makes a useful supplement to college textbooks, and is also excellent as a main text in business brush-up programs. Author Peter J. Eisen familiarizes students with key accounting terms, explains the accounting equation, and goes on to instruct in the use and preparation of financial statements, the recording of business transactions in journals, and in closing and adjusting entries at the end of a business period. The book is organized to closely follow a standard college textbook, but concentrates on student understanding of what is done, and, more importantly, how and why. Other helpful features include--
  • Review questions
  • Computational problems with complete detailed solutions presented when appropriate
  • Additional problems to reinforce the reader's knowledge
  • An extensive glossary of accounting terms.

New features in this edition include instruction in the use of spreadsheets to solve many accounting problems, a more detailed explanation of accounting data procedures as internal controls designed to safeguard assets, and extensive commentary on business ethics.

This updated edition offers a step-by-step overview for accounting students. It explains the accounting equation and financial statements and shows how to record business transactions, adjust and reverse entries, keep special journals, record receivables and payables, and more.

    Accounting

    Thie book was fantabulous! I was already in advance accounting III with no real understanding of the previous two classes and I just felt like maybe I was going to have to change my major. Once I purchased this book and read hte first few chapters, I grasped the concept of accounting immediately. I will forever look for books by this publisher to help further my basic understandings of subject I have problems with. The book is very clear and the computational problems at the end of each chapter is a plus. It allows you to work the problems and then it gives the answers in an explanatory form to help you understand what you did! Fantabulous!
