Great "how to" manual. Love the pictures of the actual computer screens. It helps to understand what is being said. Too bad QuickBooks doesn't give you a manual like this when you purchase the program. Highly recommend this book to anyone who needs step by step instructions for Quickbook. Thanks to the writers!

Excellent! Simple enough for experts, detail enough for beginners. Tips are great, diagrams are precise and I will recommend it any day, this book took out all unnecessary information you will find in other books.

Simple to use. I was concerned that it would be harder to figure out. It looks like it will make everything easier when I have to do taxes.
HASH(0xa66ab234) out of 5 stars The Ideal First-Stop Book for Mastering QuickBooks Nov. 7 2013
By Susanne C - Published on
Format: Paperback
Quickbooks 2013 by Thomas E. Barich is an excellent introduction to QuickBooks, especially for those who have no prior background with the technology. QuickBooks 2013 is a beautiful glossy book, containing illustrative and meaningful screenshots for a majority of the examples in the book.

The book covers the gamut of topics from vendors to customers to inventory, while also covering many peripheral topics such as both how to connect QuickBooks with your online banking system and how to import/export Excel lists.

Some additional interesting aspects covered in the book include (1) the ability to send reports to the accountant while freezing the data until the accountant revisions are made in the document, (2) the means of creating budgets and corresponding charts that show budget/actual discrepancies, (3) the ways to backup data in Quickbooks, and (4) the availability of accessing and connecting to payroll services through QuickBooks.

With that in mind, the target market for this book is primarily but certainly not exclusively comprised of those who live in the United States. To explain, the book at one point describes certain aspects of Quickbooks that are specific to the U.S., such as U.S. tax levels, while not providing information on how to alter the data in order to be relevant to other countries. There is likely an easy fix that another follow-up book might cover in explicit detail, although I have not yet encountered it.

In spite of this minor shortcoming, Quickbooks 2013 serves as an effective overview for the newcomer. As a rule of thumb, to not only learn a new technology, but to also master it, I've discovered that one key route is to read four or five books on the topic while gaining hands-on experience with the software.

Furthermore, for those not familiar with accounting principles (or, in other words, those not versed in concepts such as double-entry accounting) another piece of advice is to follow-up reading Quickbooks 2013 with books on basic accounting/bookkeeping. An initial recommendation is Accounting for Non-Accountants, Third Edition, by Wayne A. Label. While not an attractive layout, Label's book drives home the basics of accounting in a straightforward, condensed manner.

All in all, Quickbooks 2013 by Thomas Barich is the ideal first-stop--but not the end-point--for learning Quickbooks. Those familiar with basic accounting principles will reap a nice initial overview while those unversed on accounting concepts will likely need additional materials.

Does not answer several questions I had. I knew how to set up, needed questions answered that was not covered in this book. Also was looking for a book with more lay mans terms.
