"I have been teaching accounting out of the The Heinz and Parry textbook for 32 years. I feel it is the best textbook to use as an entry level accounting class in a career college. The theory is introduced effectively and the practical applications are more than adequate."
Jackie Marshall, Ohio Business College

"The book is very well organized, presenting material in a logical and easy-to-understand fashion. I use the working papers for homework, and find that resource a great benefit. The necessary accounting forms match perfectly to the textbook problems which makes homework completion much easier and more straightforward. Students also enjoy having the study guide to prepare for exams."
