Students and faculty can't get enough of these types of questions and problem sets."— Greg Charles, Western Culinary Institute

"I can honestly say that Managerial Accounting the most well-written accounting book that I have read to date. Perfect for the non-math major student! It is very easy to read, and I love how the authors keep repeating and building the confidence of students, saying 'You can do this,' and 'It's easy Math,' and then showing examples. The table of contents is excellent. Every aspect that I can think of is covered in the text."—James Mawhinney, Campus Dean, Strayer University, PA
