To say that you are studying Accounting can cover a broad range of topics. Accounting ranges from basic t-accounts and journal entries to payroll to financial statements to Taxation issues and everything in between! For those of you working through upper level accounting courses that cover topics such as: Managerical Accounting, Financial Statement analysis, Cost systems and Budgets, I highly recommend Accounting Principles II by CliffsQuickReview. This is a 290-page paperback that gives you short, thorough explanations and good examples. It also includes Present Value tables, a chapter on Investments and a detailed discussion on CVP analysis. If you get stuck on a topic this Cliffnotes guide will help you move through your assignments.
