The book, along with the second volume, is designed to perform two functions:

1) It functions as a comprehensive yet highly user-friendly, step-by-step, introduction to financial accounting.  The book includes a unique self-study feature that is otherwise available only in expensive textbooks used exclusively for the classroom: the book contains both practice tests and answers and over 800 questions and problems, all with fully-available detailed answers included in the book’s CD and online for desktop and mobile use (See page xvii: “How to Use This Book”.)

2) The book functions as a practical reference for bookkeepers, managers, owners, and investors who need to know proper foundational accounting methods and need to understand / analyze the meaning of financial reports. (Some examples: see pages, 364-367, 448, 658-659, 682, 713-716). The book also functions as a valuable reference for small business owners attempting to use accounting software, but who do not have an accounting background.

“Comprehensive, graphically pleasing, and expertly constructed; an outstanding teaching and learning tool. The purpose of the book is clearly to impart the fundamentals of accounting in a highly structured, step-by-step manner in which every lesson builds on the one before it.  In this regard, the book mightily succeeds, almost to the extent of replacing the need for a live instructor.”  — Kirkus Reviews

“Summing up: Recommended. General readers and lower division and technical program students” — Choice, S.R. Kahn, Univ. of Cincinnati

 “Exceptionally well written, organized and presented. Basic Accounting: Concepts, Principles, and Procedures, Vols. 1 & 2 is unreservedly recommended for professional, community, corporate, college and university library accounting instructional reference collections and curriculums.” — Midwest Book Review, James B. Cox

Basic Accounting is written in a simple clear manner for both slow and fast learners to follow. A step-by-step building block approach is used where one topic fluently builds into the next topic to ensure an incremental learning approach... In summary, the two-volume set provides a very economical and complete first-course coverage.”  — Issues in Accounting Education, Journal of the American Accounting Association, Kim B. Tan, California State University
