Barron’s Business Review Series - All books in this series
Like the other titles in Barron’s Business Review Series, the new sixth edition of Accounting makes a useful supplement to college textbooks, and is also excellent as a main text in business brush-up programs.

The book is organized to closely follow a standard college textbook, but concentrates on student understanding of what is done, and, more importantly, how and why. Other helpful features include
