Format: Hardcover
This book is very good for teaching you managerial accounting. I used this book in college and found it to actually be of use, unlike a lot of college textbooks. You could read the chapter and be able to do the exercises at the end of the chapter.
I mean, you know the types of books where they have questions and it's literally impossible to deduce how to answer the questions from the chapter. This book is not like that. It teaches you how to prepare specialized documents for internal business usage. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I felt that the information could be better organized as to make it easier to find.

No Code Included Sept. 3 2012
By Sue Cotton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Kindle Fire version of this textbook is generally easy to use and I am mostly happy with it. It is so much handier to have an EBook version than lugging around a bulky print book that it makes up for the few faults I have encountered. I wish it came with standard Kindle functionality but this is not the case. I have vision problems so the ability to re-size the font would be nice. You can expand/contract the image size with finger pinching movements but have to do so on each page, and having to scroll around the expanded page in order to see all of the text gets a bit old. On the plus side, you can make notes and bookmarks, and the text is searchable. I expect that if Amazon could have included Kindle functions, they would have.

I have one complaint that Amazon CAN address. The product description does not make it clear that a WileyPlus access code is NOT included in the price. If you are taking an on-line class this code will have to be purchased separately. For price shoppers out there, this is critical information and should be included in the description. This is true of any text book which would normally have an access code, not just this particular book.

Decent Textbook...complicated homework Sept. 22 2010
By E. Brady - Published on
Format: Hardcover
After using this for my class I have to say that the explanations in the chapters does not prepare you very well from the homework questions at the end. These questions can literally take a hour each and the chapter just does not have enough examples to help you with them. I ended up buying the solutions manual off Amazon and it helped a TON. It also shows you how to calculate the problem so it really helps you learn not just give you the answer. If anyone is stuck with this book I would recommend getting the manual for extra help.

Enlightening Book Oct. 30 2007
By Elijah Chingosho - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a well written book that provides comprehensive coverage of various aspects of managerial accounting. The author clearly and methodically covers the various topics pertaining to managerial accounting relevant to modern organizations.

The material in the book is well presented and the author gives several useful and helpful examples that reinforce the concepts and ideas presented in the book. I found the book to be very practical and easy to read and understand. The book is a useful and handy reference for managers working in various firms including service, retail, manufacturing and non-profit organisations. Among the subjects covered include activity-based costing, target costing, the value chain, customer profitability analysis, job-order costing, budgeting and performance evaluation.

The book is a valuable resource and guide for managers in various organizations and students doing an MBA, studying accounting or business studies at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

Not comparing apples to apples Sept. 24 2011
By bailey - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This text was brand new and what I thought I was purchasing but they did not make it clear that it did not include the $45 code needed to complete the assignemnts. Therefore it was just as cheap to buy at the college bookstore.

Excellent book July 19 2011
By cmorah - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Using this text for a UCLA extension on-line Managerial Accounting class. Excellent text: clear and concise explanations, well placed illustrations and exhibits (I hate it when the text refers to an exhibit two pages over so you have to keep flipping back and forth); very good (free) on-line supplementary activities through publishers' website includes check figures, videos, powerpoints, quizes and practice exams; there is a fee-based "connect" supplement through the publisher but I have not used it and can't comment on it. This is the 14th edition and unlike other accounting texts with numerous editions where the authors appear to simply keep adding words until the narrative is incomprehensible, they have kept things tight. A nice change.
