Helpful Book!

Great book. It helped me understand accounting and it was easy to pick up the tricks and the trades of this course.

Excellent ... for certain purposes

Accounting for Dummies is an excellent book for dummies to understand accounting practices, not necessarily perform accounting yourself. Whether this book will be helpful or not depends on your educational goal. If you are a small business and want to learn how to "keep the books," this book isn't for you. I think Idiot's Guide to Accounting is more geared for that. However, If you want to learn the termonology and ideas behind accounting practices this is good. I'm a graduate business student who never had accounting in undergraduate classes. This book was very helpful in "getting me caught up." It also helps you learn to read and understand a financial statement as well. The book is also well read, easy to read and follow. Termonology is clearly explained and future mention of those ideas have references back to the original explanation. There is a good glossary in the back and the index is very complete.

Very Good book for Financial and Mangerial Accounting

This is a great book for a person to use to suplment what is learned and practiced in Both entry level college accounting classes. It really will help you get a better grade in the class by reinforcing and explainations that are different then your typical college textbook. I highly reccomend this book for any college student that will be taking accounting, it is well worth it's price and I believe if read during the semester along with the practice in your class you will get a better grade. I did.

Not for you if your looking for a bookkeeping treatise.

This book is great (I mean great) if you need to understand what is profit, whats in a balance sheet, how to understand it, whats in an income statement. What are assets, etc, etc. This book will open your eyes. Like others have said its not about double entry bookkeeping, or how to prepare your balance sheet. Find that elsewhere. This book addresses what the numbers mean and how to follow them to come to conclusions and how to use that information.Let me put it this way. If you have a small business, or are put into a position where you need to manage money for a business, or need to buy a business. This book will help you if your not accountant savy.Its a great book, and is very well written. Another five star success for the dummies series.
