Book Description

Dec 13 2010 0078110920 978-0078110924 9

The Ninth Edition of Advanced Financial Accounting is an up-to-date, comprehensive, and highly illustrated presentation of the accounting and reporting principles and procedures used in a variety of business entities. This edition continues to provide strong coverage of advanced accounting topics, with clarity of presentation and integrated coverage based on continuous case examples. The text is highly illustrated with complete presentations of worksheets, schedules, and financial statements so that students can see the development of each topic. Inclusion of all recent FASB and GASB pronouncements and the continuing deliberations of the authoritative bodies provide a current and contemporary text for students preparing for the CPA Examination and current practice. This has become especially important given the recent rapid pace of the authoritative bodies in dealing with major issues having far-reaching The book's building block approach introduces concepts with simple examples and then gradually introduces complexity, allowing students to easily keep pace with the material.

The key strengths of this text are the clear and readable discussions of concepts and the detailed demonstrations of concepts through illustrations and explanations. The many favorable responses to prior editions from both students and instructors confirm our belief that clear presentation and comprehensive illustrations are essential to learning the sophisticated topics in an advanced accounting course.

2.0 out of 5 stars beware of big changes in this new edition May 6 2011
By Ted - Published on Amazon.com
I taught from the previous editions of this text. Since Baker's name is on the 9th edition, I was expecting continuity when I switched to the 9th edition. I was wrong. Baker seems to have retired. The new authors are bringing in some big changes.

If you are used to the previous editions, you may not be comfortable with the 9th edition's chapters on consolidation. The systematical approach for eliminations has disappeared. The new authors changed the equity method to fully adjusted equity method, which causes significant changes to the elimination entries. You may need to spend extra time to get used to them.

There are errors and occasionally confusing illustrations in the text, and plenty of typos, errors, omissions, and hidden assumptions in the exercises and solution manual to frustrate the student. Errors in the test bank are annoying.

I will stay away from the 9th edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great revision from a fresh pair of authors July 22 2011
By S. ramakrishnan - Published on Amazon.com
The book has been significantly revamped by the two new authors. The content is coherent and the explanation is lucid. Whats great about the book is the accompanying website specific to the textbook. One of the new authors has spent significant amount of time creating flash videos with his voice over explaining several important topics. While far and few, the book does a decent job of highlighting differences between IASB and GAAP. Overall, the book is easy to follow even as a self study guide. If an instructor covers the material, the book reinforces your learning adequately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, well-organized text July 7 2012

The text is a little dry at times, but very clear. Plenty of decent examples throughout the text to illustrate the concepts, exercises at the end of each chapter stretch the concepts a little. One of the better accounting texts I've used.
