The book was very comprehensive and easy to follow.
The book gave great examples, and it was easy to follow along with the different concepts.
The material is up to date and very relatable for students.
The author did an excellent job defining any new terms or concepts that are introduced throughout the book.
The text uses examples for the different journal entries and refers to them throughout the textbook.
Each topic is divided up by chapters and each concept is explained thoroughly and then an example is given. The example problems are explained throughout the example which makes it easy for the students to understand. I will use this book as a supplemental piece to the current textbook that I currently use.
Each topic is presented in a way that it builds upon the previous topic introduced.
The text was easy to read, and the examples problems were separated so that it was easy to reference without having to dig through the text.
I did not notice any grammatical errors.
The example problems use generic companies, so it is not insensitive to different cultures.
I found this book easy to read and it explained the different concepts of managerial accounting very well. Each new concept has an example problem or journal entry. The problem was also thoroughly explained, which will make it easier for students to understand the different steps. I plan on using this text as a supplemental addition to the current textbook that I use because I feel that it does a better job explaining the different concepts.
