HASH(0xa5dd3660) out of 5 stars beware of big changes in this new edition May 6 2011
By Ted - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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.

HASH(0xa5dd36b4) out of 5 stars Solid, well-organized text July 7 2012

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0xa5dd3990) out of 5 stars Great revision from a fresh pair of authors July 22 2011
By S. ramakrishnan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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.
HASH(0xa5dd3eac) out of 5 stars One of the better accounting books! Nov. 22 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
While there is most likely a newer edition by now, this book really helped me learn the material that I needed to. Even if you get stuck with a bad professor, the authors do a great job of laying everything out in a logical order and providing useful examples. It's probably wise to hang onto this one once you class ends, assuming that you plan to take the CPA Exam.

This is one of the better accounting books I have stumbled upon on. It provides deep secrets and information on accounting. I have used this book to help me in my college classes and it turns out that it had more information than our book required by the teacher. I recommend this book for brushing up on your accounting skills.
