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.

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.
