4.0 von 5 Sternen a good book 26. Juli 2000
Von barbara
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is very similar to Managerial Accounting by Morse and Zimmerman. It's a great book. The lay-out is attractive. It's easy to trace something and the examples are really clear. It provides a good framework for evaluating accounting systems and a basis for analysing proposed changes to these systems.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Think Management Accounting Rather Than Cost Accounting 24. Oktober 2002
Von Craig Matteson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Too often management accounting is completely subsumed in cost accounting. Yes, they are part of the same topic, but they have somewhat different emphases. This book covers costs, but it is really more focused on how you allocated decision rights, set measurement criteria, and how you reward people to get the behavior you want. It is also very helpful in clarifying thinking about what could be going wrong if you aren't getting the behavior you wanted out of a given system of measurement and reward.
The writing is very good and the organization of the book is sound and helpful. While there are charts and graphs it is not a book full of color and pictures. It is a book with words and ideas that are helpfully supplemented as needed. But the self-study problems and cases are set off from the main text by being on different color pages. This helps in locating what you are after.
There is a wealth of thought provoking problems and short cases to help promote discussion and provoke your thinking on the topics discussed in each chapter.
Another aspect of the book I really like are the concept questions in each chapter that help you gauge your understanding of what you have just read. The solutions for these are provided in the back of the book so you can know if you are "getting it" or not.
This is a fine and very useful text.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Bloated with Homework Problems 30. August 2005
Von Bill Grissom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The most surprising thing was how much of the book is homework problems (blue pages). Viewed edge-on they appear to be ~50% of the pages. Many problems are excessively wordy, fine as novellos but reading 2 pages to get to the issues is often tedious. The text is well written, but I didn't find the subject to have as much meat as other MBA subjects like Finance or Operations Research. I understand it is one of the better books on Managerial Accounting. I have 27 years experience at many companies, so others might find the material more enlightening.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Worse book in my entire MBA program 14. November 2006
Von Reviewer 557 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Beware ! This book does perhaps the poorest example explaining any concepts. I have never had so much stress in my life than taking a managerial accounting class with this book. I mean I actually couldn't sleep because of this book!

I took this class last year and I just finished my MBA and I am working on my Phd now, and I thought I would reflect and give some valuable advice to you, my fellow students.

If you don't have a prior managerial accounting background, go read as much as you can before you get into this book. Or you will be completely stressed out, lost and feel that you are a dummy. This book makes smart students feel dum. I mean really dum. You are not dum, the book just lacks clear explanations.

This book deals mostly with managerial accounting. For example if you are paid $100 per day at your job, really you are costing the company more than what you are being paid, really you use resources, like from human resources who hired you, electricity costs, phone costs, IT, etc, so your true cost to the company broken down is probably $160 per day. This is called cost allocation, in a crude example.

Easy concept right?, Just that you will not be able to learn this easily from this book unless you have a deep prior background in this. The good examples Zimmerman(author) gives are spoiled by the majority of his jargon and bad examples.

I honestly found myself at one point reading 1 page for over an hour to understand! (and I am a high A student). In my entire MBA program, I never had a worse book, nor more stress!!!

Ultimately, I had to do many exhaustive Internet searches to learn cost allocation theory.

Some reasons why this book is so bad:

(1) Does not explain many concepts with clear explanations

(2) Uses too much jargon

(3) Shows graphs and vital data one the next pages instead of including them on the same page, Imagine as you read you have to constantly change the page to see the graphs and charts, Very poor!

(4) Zimmeran doesn't want to teach, rather he wants to prove to you that he is smart!

(5) THE WORST

Perhaps the worst is the homework problems in the back. Zimmerman (the author) does not give sufficient examples of how to solve these examples. Nor does the book give the answers. Also, some problems are extremely hard, even the professor of the class had difficulty solving and explaining this. What is the goal of a book if students have to search elsewhere and be stressed out to learn?

I would say that this book is like taking a class in Algebra and having questions and concepts explained in Calculus.

Again, if you don't have a prior background in any of this, go take a class at a junior college on cost accounting to prepare for this book, you will need it. Or you too will be so stressed out!!

Jerold Zimmerman, please don't take personal offense, you may be a smart guy, but the art of education is explaining concepts easily and showing your work, which in my opinion and my fellow students' opinion, overall this book lacks.

GOOD LUCK to all students, and my prayers are with you if you have this book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Beware of the International Edition if you are a U.S. student. 14. Januar 2008
Von E. Lemke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
While sellers may claim that the international edition is the same as the North American version (ISBN 0-07-297586-5), it is not true! While the content is similar, it is not the same. Just in Chapter 1, the problems do not match up. So, if you are an MBA student in a North American university, I recommend buying the North American edition. You think you will save a few bucks (like I did), but in the end you will have to buy the same edition as the rest of your class and get stuck with two books.
