"I like the horizontal approach to consolidations. I believe students can more easily grasp the consolidation concept with worksheets, and the horizontal approach simply enhances that learning."
"The horizontal approach used by the text is very student friendly. The material is presented in a logical and consistent manner with sufficient examples. This enables my students to develop a basic understanding of the logic of consolidation procedures without excessive reliance upon the mechanics of a worksheet."
"I prefer the horizontal approach implemented here. I think it is easier for the students to grasp and therefore easier to convey in the classroom."
"This textbook is probably the best available to teach advanced accounting topics today. It is up-to-date with accounting standards and a well-written text that succinctly presents topics typically covered in advanced accounting courses. Further, the exhibits throughout the text enhance student learning."
