I am new to Quickbooks and bought this hoping to be able to learn it easily, with the addition of the other "books", I also thought I would get a good grasp of how to up my game for basic accounting and bookkeeping. This book was not the book for me. The author bypassed or only lightly touched on key skill points, had me roving around the book looking for "explanations" that were on other pages that didn't really explain, and tossed vocabulary and concepts at me without explainations. I am sure that for someone who is already familiar with the program and accounting, this book was fantastic, but for a beginner, it was confusing and intimidating.
This is a very comprehensive book for anyone, even newbies, to learn and be able to get around your Quickbooks software. It goes above and beyond what I thought it would be. Very happy with my purchase.
Contains a quick course on book keeping and business accounting, if you don't need this then about 1/3 of the book is wasted.Reads like a text book and you must hunt for the items relative to the Quickbooks software..A good reference book to have next to the computer. If you are not familiar with accounting software then I would suggest taking a class or seminar. Learning from the beginning using this text would be difficult. I started using the software before I bought the book and didn't make too many errors.Using the book after using the software seemed easier.
Great inclusive book. However, I did not find it very useful at all for troubleshooting. Also there are some parts of the book that are unnecessary for the purpose I feel most people would purchase the product. Be sure to take a close look at the table of contents before you buy to make sure it fits your needs.
I've actually stopped using the book as I get more familiar with the program, but can see myself getting stuck at some point and using it for a reference.Quickbooks is not the ideal program for all businesses, but I could not justify upgrading my current accounting program since they were sold to an Australian company and it would have been as expensive to upgrade as to switch. This is a good reference book for my "starting all over" project.
I didn't understand most accounting terms but this book breaks it down so if you take your time and make a list of terms in chapter one then you can start to get the idea of accounting. I've played with Quickbooks before and was lost without knowing accounting language. I haven't read most of the book yet.
Have experience with other "dummy" books. Like how well they explain information. Good reference. Arrived on time and exactly what I expected.
Ok....so I know basic accounting but I cant find the info I need to enter my accounting for my restaurant. Going to an accountant to get me started. Wouldn't buy this unless you have used QuickBooks in the past and know how it works.
