Reviews

"The book is very well organized, presenting material in a logical and easy-to-understand fashion. I use the working papers for homework, and find that resource a great benefit. The necessary accounting forms match perfectly to the textbook problems which makes homework completion much easier and more straightforward. Students also enjoy having the study guide to prepare for exams."
