"Presents content in understandable language. Includes accounting theory. Includes real companies within the chapters to illustrate 'real life' situations. Exercises and problems begin with easy concepts and progress with the more difficult concepts."

— Jean McKenzie, Minnesota State Community & Technical College

"The book is very clear and easy to understand; the illustrations are very good and clear with the additional explanatory notes. I've taught from many accounting books in the last 30 years, and this one is by far the best accounting textbook that I've ever used. The PowerPoint® slides for the book are awesome; the instructor resources are great. CengageNow is a great assessment management tool and learning tool for the students."
