This book was required for my college class on intermediate accounting. The previous semester we used McQuaig & Billie College Accounting, which was comprehesive and delightful to read. This semester with Intermidiated Accounting/Skousen I am dreadfully confused and frustrated!!! UGH. I find the book boring to read and not enough information to do the test.
