Book Review - The McGraw-Hill 36-Hour Course In Finance for Non-Financial Managers, by Robert Cooke
This book is perfect if you are not an accountant and one of the following things are true.
-You need to read financial reports
-You interact with executives
-Deal with CFOs or Controllers
-Invest in companies
As a technology consultant, I’m often asked to help with difficult business problems, and more often than not, those issues deal with accounting principles. I’ve tried reading Accounting 101 books, but I don’t need to know how to keep a "T" account. I needed a summary book for Accounting 400, and this book fit the bill.
There is also an online test that will grant you a certificate of completion. I didn't do that, but you might like to.
