"I think using QuickBooks would be very helpful in teaching accounting. It would add interest, definitely."
"I have always liked the idea of teaching QuickBooks and College Accounting together."
"Most students who work with accounting information will need to know some computerized accounting software. When we have small business advisory groups on campus, they all tell us that accounting students MUST know how to use computerized financial accounting software."
"I think the beauty of CengageNOW is the interactive element of the homework. It provides instant feedback in the form of suggestions and tips rather than just telling the student that he got the question wrong. It forces the user to look at the problem from multiple angles in order to answer the problem correctly."
