Customer Reviews

Budgets for beginners  April 21, 2011

This textbook seems to be written for someone planning to take a position working on budgets in a university setting -- it provides a very basic background with more of a philosophical perspective than concrete advice on working with numbers. I highly recommend this cheap textbook, ecampus provided excellent customer service, therefore, I will, without a doubt purchase books from this company in the future.

"This book is vitally important for understanding the complex financial underpinnings of higher education. Could there be a more critical time for administrators to add to their knowledge in this area? I don't think so."-Eugene S. Sunshine, senior vice president for business and finance, Northwestern University

"The authors have produced an easily readable and valuable resource for board members, administrators, students, faculty, or anyone interested in knowing about budgeting and the budgeting process. Their treatment of the subject is thorough and complete."-Larry H. Dietz, vice chancellor for student affairs, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale

"This is the best 'nitty-gritty-how-to' book on university budgeting that I have found. My graduate students at both the master's and doctoral levels have found it to be a comprehensive, insightful, and useful tool in their graduate studies."-Linda Kuk, program chair, Higher Education Graduate Programs, and associate professor of education, Colorado State University
