QuickBooks Pro 2015: Comprehensive covers basic and advanced concepts. It includes 140-day trial software, an eLab license key, and contains 12 full-color lessons integrating small business case studies.
Join us for a new webinar where Pat will share teaching tips and best practices for teaching QuickBooks!
*This book and trial software is intended for use with PCs only.
Our unique approach offers a profoundly different learning experience. The instructional design engages students and makes learning easy and effective. Robust instructor resources reduce prep time and simplify instruction. Solution highlights:
Prepare your students for the real world. Students master concepts by working through a progression of exercises. Case studies replicate real-world situations giving your students the experience they need to be successful in today’s workplace.
Automate grading with eLab Quick Grader. Select assignments can be uploaded to eLab for instant grading and feedback. Manage grades within eLab or integrate with your LMS to manage grades from your standard gradebook. For QuickBooks 2014 and 2015 versions only.
Give your students an edge with certification. Students can take their exams with the confidence that they have mastered material that has been approved for the QuickBooks Certified User Program.
Make the connection to accounting principles. Understanding accounting principles helps students grasp why QuickBooks behaves the way it does. Our Flashback to GAAP and Behind the Scenes features explain and visually demonstrate the underlying accounting principle related to the QuickBooks action — in terms a non-accountant can understand.
Features that encourage critical thinking:
Sort Through the Stack: Students organize and enter a variety of items into QuickBooks, such as invoices, bank statement, emails, and more.
Be Your Own Boss: Students create and work with their own company file, or a company file for a company they would like to have.
Comprehensive Learning Projects: Students pull together key concepts from each unit as a capstone activity with real-world scenarios. Available in complimentary instructor resources.
This textbook is available in print or as an enhanced eBook accessible through any web browser and any mobile device.
PLEASE NOTE This text is for use with the PC version of QuickBooks Pro 2015, and the trial software is available for PCs only.
MAC Users:Labyrinth Learning does not provide QuickBooks trial software for the MAC. This textbook may be used with QuickBooks for the MAC, but screenshots will not always match the software and some steps may differ.
Canadian Customers: This text is not compatible with the Canadian version of QuickBooks.
I have used this textbook (2014, 2015) for four years now. My students have a 100% pass rate on the QuickBooks Pro certified user certification exam.
Great text with excellent sample company exercises. I especially like the EYS series as they make my students really think about the tasks needed to complete this assessment.

Fantastic!!! We will be adopting this for our program next year.
The book seems to be pretty comprehensive. I like the connections back to the accounting cycle. However, I do think that more graded assignments / pdfs of solutions would be helpful from an instructor perspective.

I like and will continue to use the textbook. It's detailed, thorough, practical and good for an online presentation. I would like to see more graded AYS assignments and the Project condensed.

The books are expensive for students. There should be a way to purchase a key code for eLab while using a used textbook.

This book keeps getting better each time, eLab gets more concise with the edition. However, my students favorite parts of the book is where it tells you what to do if you mess up! A great addition to the book!

The step by step instructions are good and this is a fairly comprehensive text, but we use it as a stand alone course and not part of another accounting course. I would like to see more of the advanced features avaiable for QuickBooks.

The book is useful and step by step for students to follow and also allows more practice at the end of chapters. The use of introducing accounting principles are important and nice that they are included in the book. The online download of the software is convenient versus a disc and the online download of student files make ease of access to those resources.

I have used the earlier editions of this text for years. We complete our text selection process and based on the reviews we are going with the new edition. The detailed instructions and exercises are fantastic. After completing my course the majority of my students go on to take the QB Certified User Exam and I am happy to say that most of them pass, which to me shows the quality of this text.

I have reviewed QuickBooks Pro 2015 textbooks from other publishers and have found that Labyrinth Publications has the clearest and most comprehensive textbook. The hands-on exercises are excellent and provide a clear understanding to help students fully understand and master the capabilities of the program.

This book covers both the GAAP and real-world use of Quickbooks. I love the explanations and practical applications, and my students like the pictures and tables. Also, the online resources are helpful, especially in the first weeks before student have their textbooks. The free software as standard ensures that every student has a copy, rather than the discounts being with out.

QuickBooks Pro is an excellent text for mastering both the basic and complex elements of the QuickBooks software. I think students will find the step by step approach very useful in learning each module of the program. The chapter exercises that reinforce then apply the students' knowledge is very useful. Overall a great book to help students learn real world work skills.
