Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I very much like the [transaction] format and I think students find it intuitive. It does a nice job of highlighting the preservation of the balance sheet identity as transactions are recorded."

"I like the book's emphasis on the accounting process and the use of journal entries / T-accounts for representing transactions. It is for precisely this emphasis that we continue to prescribe this textbook."

"Generally I like this text very much. It is easy to read (never complaints from my students) and it is at a slightly more advanced level than most other introductory texts, making it perfect for an MBA program that wishes to teach or have the option to touch on one or more of these more advanced topics."
