I think that a glossary of terms, is a good idea. My students have often asked if they could have one to supplement their accountancy studies. This type of book would be appropriate not only for HND and undergraduate students, but could have wider appeal to those studying professional accountancy courses and CMS, DMS and MBA students, many of whom have never studied accountancy before and struggle to get to grips with the terminology. I would recommend the book to my students.' - Sue Davis, Head of Department of Finance, Business School, University of Gloucestershire
