"This is one of the best books on the market...Hansen & Mowen is the book I have adopted. I like it and recommend it to other teachers. I am a huge fan of this author team...This is flat out an excellent book...the assignments...are excellent."
"When I originally reviewed cost accounting books, I chose this one because of its exposition and layout. The layout allowed the more traditional professors to stress the first ten chapters. My personal interests correspond to chapters 11-16. The material from chapters 17-20 are emphasized in the Freshman-level Introduction to Management Accounting."
