QuickBooks® Online for Accounting 1st Edition

Glenn Owen

  • Published


QUICKBOOKS® ONLINE FOR ACCOUNTING focuses exclusively on QBO. With easy-to-read instructions, examples, demonstration videos, and manageable assignments, QUICKBOOKS® ONLINE FOR ACCOUNTING requires little, if any, in-class-instruction. This self-paced tool is an ideal supplement to any accounting course. Readers logically progress through real-life case examples and assignments. The first chapter discusses important differences between QuickBooks'® desktop and online versions and how users can efficiently import files. The book also introduces how to solve accounting issues and generate useful financial accounting reports using this online computerized accounting software application that doesn't require a lab or software installation.

Glenn Owen, Allan Hancock College & UC Santa Barbara

Glenn Owen, BA, CPA, recently retired from Allan Hancock College’s Accounting and Business faculty, where he lectured on accounting and information systems for 21 years. In addition, he is a retired lecturer at the University of California at Santa Barbara, where he taught accounting and information systems courses from 1980 to 2011. His professional experience includes five years at Deloitte & Touche as well as vice president of finance positions at Westpac Resources, Inc. and Expertelligence, Inc. An acclaimed and well-respected author, Mr. Owen is well known for his QuickBooks® texts, which offer self-paced case-based instruction on the use of this commercial accounting application. His innovative teaching style emphasizes the decision maker’s perspective and encourages students to think creatively. His graduate studies in educational psychology and his 40 years of business experience yield a balanced blend of theory and practice that permeates and strengthens all of his books.
  • STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES OPEN EACH CHAPTER. Each chapter begins with a listing of expected student learning outcomes followed by a detailed, step-by-step explanation of how students can achieve those outcomes. In most chapters the explanations utilize a Sample Company created by Intuit®. Using this company, the author demonstrates how various operating, investing, and financing activities of a business are captured and then reported in QBO. End-of-chapter questions, matching, and a student case follow and reinforce these explanations.
  • DEMONSTRATION VIDEOS. Video demonstrations are available on the student companion site and are referenced by a Demonstration Icon in the margin. These demonstrations are stand-alone full-action videos showing step-by-step illustrations of business processes explained in this text.
  • END-OF-CHAPTER QUESTIONS STRENGTHEN STUDENTS COMPREHENSION. Specially designed questions at the end of each chapter help students review the concepts and processes explained in the chapter, while a matching section reviews the chapter's important terms and definitions.
  • STUDENT CASES REINFORCE CONCEPTS WITH HANDS-ON PRACTICE. Each Case provides key information for students to add data to their company file. Chapters build upon the information from the previous chapter's cases. For success in learning, students must complete the previous chapter's student case before attempting the next chapter's case.
  • THE BOOK AND QBO FOCUS ON ONE COMPANY CASE. Each licensed copy of QBO works with only one company other than the sample company provided online. To correspond with this, the book emphasizes one case for illustration and practice, rather than multiple cases as in the author's other QuickBooks® texts.
  • COMPRHENSIVE SOLUTIONS APPEAR IN THE INSTRUCTOR'S MANUAL. You can easily find complete solutions for each chapter's student case.
  • SELF-PACED APPROACH MAKES THIS BOOK THE IDEALSUPPLEMENT TO A REGULAR ACCOUNTING COURSE. Easy-to-read instructions, examples and manageable assignments require little, if any, in-class instruction. Students logically progress through real-life case examples and assignments.
