Dana Aberwald Clark. I bought this study guide to supplement the textbook. At first, I was really pleased with purchasing this study guide.

Dana Aberwald Clark. i wanted to download this. As concepts became more complicated, this book did very little to make things clearer.

These concerns led us to create Fundamentals of Financial Management Concise 18. .EUGENE F. BRIGHAM JOEL F. HOUSTON 4723 .

These concerns led us to create Fundamentals of Financial Management Concise 18 years ago. When designing Con- cise, we had in mind those instructors who wanted to retain Fundamentals’ depth and level but eliminate some less essential topics. First, we would like to thank Dana Aberwald Clark, who worked closely with us at every stage of the revision-her assistance was absolutely invaluable. Second, Susan Whitman provided great typing and logistical support.

Fundamental Concepts in Financial Management. Chapter 6. Risk and Rates of Return. Financial management is also important in governmental operations, from schools to hospitals to highway departments. The job opportunities in financial management range from making decisions regarding plant expansions to choosing what types of securities to issue when financing expansion.

You likely need to have this book for class. If you want if for some other reason, I would recommend a different text. The present critical reviews are all spot-on, and here are my two cents.

The organization of the content is scattershot. You'll find yourself frequently turning forward and back several pages to reference a chart or table the text discusses. There is no shortage of examples as the book moves from concept to concept, though it frequently commits the sin of showing but not telling. Another reviewer described it as equivalent to watching an accountant zip through the work, then ask if you got it. That's it exactly. The rationale behind why certain mechanics work as they do is explained either five pages away from the examples, or sometimes explained only half way. Granted, basic accounting becomes intuitive once you grasp accounting logic and rationale, but this book seems to operate under the assumption that you can learn by deduction. I don't know that accounting is the best subject to learn by deduction.

I have a particular beef with chapter two. Chapter two is new to this edition, and the reason why Schipper and Francis are up there on the cover. This is apparently the Duke University crash course in balance sheets and income statements. What should have been a simple two-part discussion - balance sheet and income statement - turned into a meandering analysis of the two at once. What the advantage of the Duke method may be is a mystery to me, as it seems nothing but a hot mess of poorly fleshed-out examples and a sloppy how-to guide on T-accounts.

The professor I had who taught from this book spoke highly of previous editions, but even he had some creative things to say about Ed. 13, the Duke Chapter in particular. If you can survive this book, you'll probably do all right in accounting. Hopefully you don't have to pay too much for the text

This book is laughably bad. It's stupidly convoluted, the practice problems are orders of magnitude more complex than what is explained in the text, and it does this thing:

Ch.3: "...and this leads us to [Topic A], which will be covered in chapter 12."
Ch.12: "...by using what you learned about [Topic A] in chapter 3, you can easily..."

Like, I don't know if the author or editor are absent-minded, or don't actually know what they're talking about, but this happens about 4 or 5 times in the book. Each time, the book teaches you nothing about [Topic A], it just hopes you'll magically know already.

This book is trash.

This was a required textbook for my accounting class.

Unfortunately reviews probably won't be able to sway the other people buying as a required textbook for class, but be warned: the examples in the book often don't provide enough information to answer the question correctly. There are several examples where the answer could vary based on interpretation of the limited information provided.

If you have a good understanding of basic accounting principles, or a good teacher who can convey those, this book is barely adequate.

It is a very detail oriented book and you have to read every single sentence. Everything is stated, not much is explained. The reader gets lost in all the statements and tables. The probelms are annoying and like playing meaningless puzzles. One gets the feeling that the authors want to trick you rather than effectively teach the material.

I wish the authors would have explained all the concepts step by step, but they go over the material again and again in a spiral fashion. I find this approach rather confusing and would have hoped for a more gradual approach of logically building up knowledge.

If you are a detail oriented person you might like this book, but if you are a grand-picture thinker you get terribly lost. The storyline is missing.

I find this book one of the hardest books to follow. I can read general relativity books and solve Einstein's equations, but the way the material is presented here makes Einstein's work sound really easy.

Pretty good textbook as far as textbooks go. I wish there were solutions included in the textbook, perhaps for the odds or evens? I would have appreciated a solutions manual or something. Pages rip or mark easily. The worked examples are nice but only of medium help trying to solve the problems.

I do not know where to begin....Pity the student who is required to buy it.
The text would benefit from a rewrite. I found the structure convoluted.
But really, textbooks? Come on!
1. This is ACCOUNTING. Make it live and interactive. Learn by doing. Let us mess about with real files online.
2. Can we PLEASE ENTER THE 21st Century? Textbooks, heavy, cumbersome, unwieldy and often inaccessible HAVE GOT TO GO!

Forced to use this text as a part of an MBA program, I found myself pouring over every paragraph without advancing my knowledge. Additionally, the book is riddled with errors, making it even harder to establish any trust between reader and author. If you too are forced to use this text, I hope you are better at finding external resources than was I. If you are using the text for self-study and have little or no background in accounting, I strongly urge to you to look elsewhere.
