I recently purchased this book, because I was trying to rely less on the accountant when I had questions about navigating QuickBooks. First off, if you have no accounting experience, or have never used QuickBooks Pro then I would purchase a less comprehensive book. It does give you a couple of chapters in the beginning, that attempt to rapidly explain accounting principles. However, in my opinion someone that has no accounting background would be confused, and possibly intimidated by continued use of QuickBooks.That being said, this book does give a comprehensive overview of the program, and is easy to follow if you are familiar with QuickBooks. I use QuickBooks Pro daily, and found this book very easy to understand. It also explained functions within the program that I did not know existed prior to reading this book. I set out to find an alternate way to learn about QuickBooks outside a classroom environment, and I think this book accomplishes that. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a similar situation.
The title says it all, I am not an accountant and was thrust into the role at our Church (small Church all volunteers) I purchased QuickBooks 2014 and quickly realized that I needed "QuickBooks 2014 for Dummies" now we have a professional set of books.
There isn't a whole lot to say about the Dummies series, so I would just add that this is very effective for what it is. I needed a basic introduction to QuickBooks but also some general accounting practices and this served that purpose.If I had a quibble, it's calling it an "8 Books in 1" and then charging north of $18 for a kindle version. Really?
I just got handed the job of treasurer for a club I belong to--I had to learn Quick Books quickly. This book helps a great deal--especially the glossary that allows me to look up exactly what I need. Quick Books is fairly intuitive once you get the hang of it--and this book is a great go-to for those situations you can't quite figure out yourself.
Very handy to keep around while preparing for the end of year activity. I've used QB for a while so I was very hesitant to buy this book since I know how to enter items, customers, vendors, and do the basics. But...I had NO idea how to prepare everything for taxes/setup accounts to make them coincide with QB Point of Sale/etc....until this year, someone else has always handled that. With this book, I was able to get everything setup correctly and learn a few extra tips and tricks along the way!
As a bookkeeper this is my bible. This book goes into all of the ins and outs of QuickBooks. I refer to it all the time.
Very easy to use and extremely helpful. THANK YOU!
This book is VERY helpful with step by step instructions. Fast shipping too! :-) I would recommend it to anyone that likes a easy step learning program.
