This work takes a real-world, single focus company approach in every chapter. The decision-making focus shows the relevance of financial accounting regardless of whether the student has chosen to major in accounting.
This is a good beginner's book as it provides the basics you need to introduce yourself to the subject. I needed it for a class but it can serve as a good reference guide as well.
Exactly as described and shipped quickly!

Don't buy this book as a self-study guide to financial accounting. It is an excellent textbook for a course or, if you have already studied bookkeeping, it is the perfect book to show you how financial accounting information is useful for managerial and investment decisions. The real world emphasis provides a great context. The authors have struck a good balance between acccounting processes and the use of accounting information.The book is a good choice for an accounting course or the perfect next step for self-study after bookeeping but you'll be unhappy with it if you looking for an overly simplistic approach to accounting.
A Great Asset

I used this book for an accounting course. Its very detailed and full of pertinent accounting information.I especially liked the NET TUTOR and CDROM Study Guide. It has helped me score an "A" in my course!

I am an engineer running a small company. Last year I bought an accounting package to keep better track of my business. Though the software is great the accompaning manuals are of no use and their concise introduction to accounting did make matters worse.I have been looking at several accounting manuals but could not find one I could just sit down with and read on my own.Well now I have found it. This manual is easy to read, clear and to the point and the real company examples make it interesting. After reading only two chapter I realized that the information that came with the accounting software put me totally on the wrong track.I can recommend this book, manual very highly.
