Intermediate Accounting Reviews
I purchased this book because the textbook we are using is not that great. I only read a few chapters, but so far this book explains the material in a very clear, easy to understand and comprehensive manner. I highly recommend it!!!
I own the 15th edition (Pub. 2004). I purchased it because I had read the reviews (here) of the various "Intermediates" and knew that some were difficult reads. Not so with this one. I also knew that my wife and I have had positive experiences with Thompson Learning, and felt that this would PROBABLY be my best bet. T'was so.
Layout and presentation of topics are in a logical order. Text is clearly written, and explains the why and how, using examples from annual reports, news articles, and historical information. Complicated topics, such as pension accounting and disclosure, are presented first with a simple example to give you the background you need. Then the authors progress to the more complicated and real world aspects of the topic.
This book is quite easy to use. The web site is interesting, and the "accounting in the real world" sections are a good way to understand the way the things you are learning are applied in the real world. I would like more examples of problems, sometimes the given examples are bit hard to follow.
Another excellent revision on a accounting textbook that continues to set academic and professional standards for the systematic leaning of accounting principles in a clear, concise and relevant manner.
