Loose-leaf edition of the same book  is available ISBN 978-125-916231-2 and that is the version I've requested the bookstore carry because it is cheaper for you.  (this is an expensive book but it is one you should be able to use in your professional career)
We will also be using software that comes with the book.  If you do not have a Windows computer you will have to use the software available on ESU's Skylab.

We may also have CPA Exam review software required for the course if Dr. Durler can find one that fits the course's needs.  This will be determined later.

Recommended: you also have capability for webcam sessions and a headset with a microphone.  Dr Durler will be available for  virtual consultations online.  However Dr. Durler does not plan to have sessions where all students are required to be online
