9780324100976: College Accounting, Chapters 1-10

This text presents concepts simply while ensuring the best, most accurate coverage. College Accounting is designed to make accounting understandable to virtually everyone without sacrificing substance and technical correctness. A step-by-step, straightforward approach helps students build practical accounting skills that are needed when entering the world of work. The text presents simple topics first and gradually builds to more advanced topics, so learners are not overwhelmed. The narrative approach covers a simpler example of a service business before moving to a merchandising business, and finally, a manufacturing environment.

The organization of the chapters is excellent. Beginning the chapters with topic explanations, then giving examples of each topic is of great help to both the instructor and students.

It is an impressive text - well-conceived and put together into a cohesive package. I very much like the straight-forward, no frills approach of the text. In addition, the examples in the chapters are well done. The end-of-chapter material is also very good - good planning and very good execution.

Overall, I find this a well prepared text. It provides clear explanations and many detailed figures which emphasize a logical, step-by-step approach to learning accounting. It is neither too difficult nor too easy, striking a balance that satisfies the needs of both accounting and non-accounting majors.

College Accounting is an outstanding text that provides students with the critical thinking and business skills that result in the exit competencies demanded by a competitive marketplace.
