Very good book for graduate students and undergrads, especially for MBA students with aspirations to advance their managerial accounting skills.
This is actually a good book for college work. It is very comprehensive and well organized. My professor only covered about 13 of the chapters in the book but I would imagine that the rest of them are just as good.
