In the financials section, the information often does not match with the accompanying text, which makes it very hard to put the information into practice. I also encountered a number of errors with terminology. I recommend more rigorous standardization in the financial statement.
Although the table of contents and chapter headings are very well organised and formatted, the same cannot be said for the table of the contents. The chapter headings should be kept in the same order as that of the section headings of the chapters so that one does not have to flip back and forth. The topics have been classified according to the main objectives, but a large amount of repetition of the topics and different methods have been followed in each chapter, if not all in the same chapter.
There are quite a few reasons to use a text book. This book provides many reasons. First, the book simplifies the processes of various accounting methods. The text also provides discussion of historical events that had contributed to the development of accounting principles. The book helps good candidates get a clue about the subject.
The content of the text is accurate and relatively free from error. The text does a good job of providing sources for most information. However, I would recommend inclusion of more rigorous, academic sources to complement the existing professional sources referenced throughout the text. Several of the URLs and links provided throughout the text are broken and need updated. Human resource management changes so frequently and any textbook on the subject must also be updated frequently, as discussed below. d2c66b5586
