As described

Even though I totally hate accounting, this book was pretty great. The writers do an excellent job giving examples and also have indirect stories of groups that link to what you're learning.
Works perfectly with my coursework.

I am very happy with this purchase

The best part was all the practice likely at the end of the book. If you require any accounting book from well-known writers that is well written, I'd suggest this book for you. Honestly, a lot of the concepts are essential in this book and so it will probably help you further.

Although this Audiobook is great! Very well-written and simple to follow. Accounting can be a very bland subject but this book puts it into terms that the college student can understand. Highly recommend.

Great Introduction to the Topic

This was really a quick listening that got me concerned with to the subject and provided a decent starting point that I could use to launch deeper dives into the aspects I needed more detail about.

Well written and easy to understand.

Any additional comments?

This audible is well written and greatly narrated in a very easy to listening manner, it may essentially be a little to abridged. Inordinate for someone with no knowledge of accounting but not so much if you are looking to enlarge on what you already know.

Really clear and concise.

Any additional comments?

This is quick, clear, inordinate book. Would recommend for anyone as a reminder or a primer. Certainly just about all of the subjects in any intro to accounting class are shielded in this book and are described in far simpler terms than an audible.

Listened it in one sitting. Unspoiled synopsis for those who have distress with bigger textbooks. Simple concepts that you can research more thoroughly away, if desired. Accounting is not hard!

Accounting fundamentals...

Any additional comments?

The author does a great job of clarifying these theories as if to a learner. I recommend this book particularly to students who are stressed in accounting lessons or to business owners who want to be able to create meek financial statements
