The Barnes & Noble Review
Maybe you’ve used QuickBooks before, but you’ve never come close to using it to the fullest. Maybe you’ve just upgraded to QuickBooks 2005 from some long-ago version, and you’re determined to get your money’s worth. Either way, check out Master VISUALLY QuickBooks 2005.

Elaine Marmel identifies the 170 QuickBooks tasks most important for managing, tracking, and analyzing the finances of your business. Then she walks through each one of them step-by-step. With plenty of color photos, you’re not just told what to do, you’re shown.

Part I offers a superbly organized approach to getting started with QuickBooks 2005: setting up companies, payrolls, customers, and more. Ten handy two-page spreads cover practically everything you’ll ever need to know about setting up invoicing, from creating new subtotal and discount items to setting up individual sales tax codes, customer messages, payment, and shipping methods.

The book’s remaining five sections focus on day-to-day QuickBooks tasks. There’s an extensive section on payroll and time tracking, another on customer and job activities (including estimates, credit memos, finance charges, and batch invoice printing). There are solutions for everything from handling bounced checks to printing shipping labels, creating job P&Ls to projecting cash flow.

This book’s loaded with tips. For example: how to print individual expenses for reimbursement but hide your markup. How to make QuickBooks show a customer’s back-order preference directly on the Create Invoices window. How to automatically track and accrue your workers’ comp liability. How to set up matching company contributions to your employees’ health savings accounts. If you like to learn quickly and visually, without sacrificing real-world insight, this is your book. Bill Camarda, from the April 2005 Read Only
