  • Accounting Comes Alive

    By ESIII
    I took some accounting classes, but the pace was too fast, and all I could do was memorize things in order to pass the class. But by reading this book with its colorful examples, I was able to increase my understanding of the functioning of accounting on a different level. It clarified things that I learned in the classes; although, I plan to reread this book until I am completely satisfied that I thoroughly comprehend the material.
  • Now I understand the whole concept!
