Text has very good exercise and problem material. Each exercise is somewhat focused on a specific issue or question rather than trying to cover all possible complex derivations of the issue or concept in one case problem.
My class members frequently commented that they like reading about the reason why accounting procedures were done. They felt that many "unknown" or "assumptions" presented in the introductory courses were solved when they read the intermediate text. They actually enjoyed reading the book and wished that these same authors could have written their intro text!
I have used the virtual community web site and found it extremely timely and useful. The support people were extremely helpful. The approach to material and topical arrangement, end of chapter cases, and business context items were also strengths I found with this text.
I am extremely satisfied with this text. This is the fourth Intermediate text I have used and this is by far the best. I really like how the chapters are ordered. Also, the end of chapter materials are super.
