Format: Hardcover
This book is almost incomprehensible. Using this book is the only time studying that I actually become angry. Why introduce a concept with the legal definition? 'assets are resources controlled by an entity as a result of past transactions that have probably future economic benefits.' All the definitions are written in this long winded difficult to comprehend manner. In addition much of the book is written in the passive voice 'purchase was made by a company' as opposed to 'company made purchase' and the like.

In addition the connect site has videos and slides with typographical errors and in a video on the the site the person making the video clearly recorded it on his laptop because every video has HUGE amount of background noise. In one video the person presenting refers to a fictional company called Home Realty as 'Home Reality' over and over again.

Add to that that each chapter is in the range of 40 pages long and the online questions are not fully covered in the book. I sat with a 3rd year accounting major trying to figure out the online problems (via connect) and even he could not figure out what the answer should be. He and i working together managed to pull of 25/30 on the question.

For giving definitions they use the same words over and over again, making reading difficult. For example 'x discount, y discount, z discount' instead of 'x, y and z discounts'

In short this book is TERRIBLE. I started with an interest in what accounting was all about and now, half way through I have a healthy hatred for the subject matter. AVOID THIS BOOK AT ALL COSTS. That's my take on it.

I haven't read the entire book, but so far it is very thorough, unambiguous and easy to understand. Also, the connect facility to mcgraw hill is very useful. I would recommend this book. With the approach that they have taken to this financial accounting textbook, I wonder if these authors have written a book regarding managerial accounting. If anyone knows please recommend.

This textbook is clearly written, if a little dry. It's helpful that the authors chose to focus on one company and see it through (this helps the student to be able to see how things come together). It would be nice if solutions (not answers) were provided for the many practice problems at the end of each chapter. It's good to be able to try some problems, but without solutions they become almost useless as the student has no idea whether they solved the problem correctly or incorrectly (and how the problem should have been solved if it was incorrect).

The case-together-with-concept-study-style in this book helps me not only deeply understanding the concept, but also what it is used in the real world.
