  Great for self learners and more

This book is very easy to understand and simply reading and doing half the practice problems will give you a great understanding of the subject (assuming you have correct answers to check yourself with). This is not like some math book where you will get confused in the first chapter, 90% of the explanations make sense.

The book I ordered did not come with an online code so I could only access a few of the online questions (and some of the multiple choice answers were wrong). The authors should include answers but hopefully your professor will do that for you as mine did.
  Great way to start accounting.

It is really a great book in all respects. The chapters are well organized and online material along with book is great way to learn and grasp accounting concepts.
The exercises are very good and some answers are provided on line and I think is good enough to verify the answers.

I love the book and is fun to read.
  Exactly as described and shipped quickly!

This was the exact book i need a great price and was shipped incredibly quickly!
  Excellent introductory accounting overview

This textbook was used in my introductory financial accounting course at the University of Florida, and I am planning on repurchasing it in the next few months as part of a comprehensive accounting review before starting an internship with a large professional services/accountancy firm. For a textbook, it is remarkably well-written and concise (and dare I say it...for people who enjoy accounting, enjoyable!); the real-world cases and international examples (i.e., international harmonization of standards as well as major divergences, such as the lack of LIFO in many countries) are highly relevant and help to establish a connection between the theory and real-world practices. There are more than enough practice problems to ensure mastery of the material that is covered, and as a person who is often frustrated at the abysmal lack of mention of ethics in many (if not most) business courses and texts, I was very pleased that this text provides numerous discussions of the irreducible necessity of highly ethical accounting in the post-Enron/Worldcom, Sox-driven and increasingly regulated world of the 21st century. Overall, this is a highly useful reference for those looking for a quick refresher of basic accounting and GAAP, as well as those learning financial accounting for the very first time.

I got this book in very good condition as described and got it very quick. I choose standard shipping but received it within 5 days. Strong recommendations for Edubooks
