Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

For students just embarking on a college career, an accounting course can seem daunting, like a rushing river with no clear path to the other side. As the most trusted and readable text on the market, College Accounting by Price, Haddock, and Farina presents material in a way that will help students understand the content better and more quickly. Through proven pedagogy, time-tested and accurate problem material, and a straightforward approach to the basics of accounting, Price/Haddock/Farina bridges the rushing river, offering first-time accounting students a path to understanding and mastery. 

Whether a student is taking the course in preparation for a four-year degree or as the first step to a career in business, Price/Haddock/Farina guides the student over the bridge to success. The authors represent the breadth of educational environments—a community college, a career school, and a four-year university—ensuring that the text is appropriate for all student populations. Throughout, they have adhered to a common philosophy about textbooks: They should be readable, contain many opportunities for practice, and be able to make accounting relevant for all.
