HASH(0xa6c8c180) out of 5 stars A start to understand hospital cost accounting Feb. 5 2015
By Douglas Wood - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provided me with a clear, understandable introduction to cost accounting as it should be practiced in hospitals. There is a good balance of background material, explanation of usual best practices, and good references to other materials for more research. Some of the cited works are a bit old, but that may be the nature of this area of knowledge.

HASH(0xa6206ccc) out of 5 stars great price Jan. 18 2011
By Eser - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I needed this book for my accounting course that I was taking. Even at our university book store this book was quite expensive. I got such a good deal on this book as it was brand new and it was much cheaper than the bookstore. It arrived in a few days since I placed my order and as it was described during ordering it was brand new.

HASH(0xa6206cd8) out of 5 stars Book Review Sept. 21 2009
By S. Owens - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is what it is. There were a number of errors/omissions that my professor had to offer a cheat sheet for. Other than that, you cannot make cost accounting exciting.

Not much to say about what is good or bad about the book, because if you need it, well, not many options. :-)
