This is a really great book and I would gladly have rated it very satisfied if it were not due to the spelling and number errors in it. The book has excellent information and I really like the arrangement, however the errors cause the students to get frustrated, not only when the examples but with the lessons as well. Overall I do like the book and how it is set up. It really helped my student who were planning on going into QuickBooks.

The book is simple to follow for beginners. However, it teaches students to do some things incorrectly - like properly posting an owner withdrawal. It teaches them to decrease drawing and capital. In fact, cash should be decreased and drawing increased. The temporary drawing account will be reconciled to the permanent accounts at the end of the period, but this book doesn't teach it this way in the initial chapters. Also, it would be very nice if the assignments could be submitted electronically and graded.

This text is a good introduction to basic accounting principles. Good examples with practical applications students can relate to and easily understand.
