    All of the AIPB continuing education books are very well done. Easy to understand verbage and a lot of examples and problems to work through. The two quizzes at the end of each chapter are extremely helpful by making it another tool to test how well you are understanding the subject matter.

    The book should be updated. I know I received the notificaton of the new sections, however, while studying I hadn’t printed it out and it had been months since I purchased the book so I had forgotten. Maybe when signing up for the test reminders should be given as well or when the book is sold, hard copies should be sent with the book.

    Mastering Depreciation is an excellent basic text which will give the student or business person a solid foundation and understanding of why things are done in a very clear, concise and specific way. I highly recommend the text for any business library.

    Give basic information about depreciation so you can enter it. More specific information is probably for CPA’s.
