This is based on US accounting, taxes and payroll. I was not aware of that when I made the purchase.

Minimal value to me as a Canadian.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this book. Oct. 26 2008
By Jacquelyn Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you really want to learn bookkeeping, this is not the book for you. First, it is error-filled. Second, the book provides questions in proceeding chapters about areas that have not been covered. Third, the questions are beyond description. Let's just say, based on the poorly-written sections, you will not be able to understand what is being asked. Last and worst, the concepts are not tied together so that the reader can get a complete picture of the entire process. I cannot emphasize this enough: DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. If I could have, I would have given this book a zero.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Stinko Product Feb. 19 2008
By Donald L. Smathers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am extremely sorry I purchased this 'book.' Im my opinion, it is an excreasance in the book market. It has little or no correspondence with the parent book; it has highly misleading inaccuracies. My son-in-law, who is an accountant with 30 years experience could not explain some of the examples presented. In short -- save your bux --

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor writting and explanation skills Sept. 25 2009
By Leonardo G. V. Ochoa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The accounting principles on this book are old-fashioned and poorly explained. I was expecting a more concise approach and better examples. The book is basically made up of overly simplistic questions and a ridiculous amount of space in between those questions.
