Nice use of Web Works to attract readers' mindshare March 23, 2011
This is an excellent textbook. I've read it thoroughly. The material, as presented, assumes a robust course in accounting at the college level, there is a huge number of exercises in each chapter. Clearly aimed at the undergrad environment. There is also a "Web Works" section ending the chapters. I highly recommend this book as a primary text for undergraduate finance courses.
