Yeah, sounds like a movie (Searching Bobby Fischer). I should have changed the title to “Googling Conrado Valix”. Nah, nevermind.
I was wondering of late why there were just too many people who maybe were lost in the cyberspace and found their way to my entry regarding the Financial Accounting I, 2006 Edition by Atty. Conrado Valix and Jose Peralta. These visitors are mostly students from schools in different parts of the country (Philippines), who are (maybe) fanatics of Atty. Valix (okay, I am a fan myself). My blog was even mistaken for a fan site or something like that.
Then, I tried googling for the keyword “Conrado Valix” and guess what I discovererd:
- Google – No. 1 in the search result page.
- Yahoo! – No. 1 in the search result page.
- MSN – No. 3 in the search result page.
Refining the search query yielded in a more interesting result. For a keyword “Financial Accounting by Conrado Valix”, my site ranked simply number one in all the big three search engine sites! (Note that these results change over time)
So that explains it, huh!
That should surely explain The J Spot’s entry on “Why Celebrities Should Blog“. He also cited another reason here.
Conrado Valix, being a public figure especially to accountants from college students to professionals, should start blogging. By this manner, it will pave the way at which students and professionals alike can contact him. It can be a ground where he can solicit feedbacks from readers of is “renowned” books on accounting.
Nonetheless, it’s even more ironic to note that CPAR (CPA Review School of the Philippines), being an established institution in the world of Filipino Accountants where Atty. Valix is one of the founders and the current director, doesn’t have a website (I think I’ve already said before). It’s one of the review centers that has produced and is still producing the best accountants in the country (or maybe even in the whole world), and yet it doesn’t yet have a space in the world wide web. (Or maybe it has, but it was not just optimized for search engines, I don’t know. If that’s the case, time to hire an SEO professional.) Imagine just how many students are maybe searching for its site everyday. Thus, maybe lost reviewees (and revenue).
Access to internet nowadays are becoming more widespread and cheaper. One should really reevaluate its marketing strategy.

I agree to you Jo that so many students and professors from various colleges and universities were fanatic with Atty. Valix books. Just because it is the most updated one when it comes to “Financial Accounting” specially to the new adoptions and application of IAS/PAS and IFRS/PFRS.
May i suggest to those students who want to have a copy of solution manual and answer key of Atty. Valix Books to just visit Atty. Valix at CPAR (Newly Constructed Building) opposite the Perpetual Succor Hospital and beside Immaculate Dormitory.
Well Jo, maybe i can suggest one of these days to Atty Valix to have a personal website or just use your website to publish his books including the recent updates in IAS/PAS & IFRS/PFRS, so that more professionals will recognize this not only in the Philippines but worldwide, and by publishing on the website maybe it is one of the best strategy in Marketing nowadays.
I want also to emphasize the status of CPAR that this Review School in the Philippines is number 1 in producing topnotchers in the field of Certified Public Accountants, and one of them is none other than Mr. Jorelle Tuvillo.
Regards to all!

@ Sweet, it’s just that Atty. Valix doesn’t have a website for them to shoot these requests… 😀

no doubt, lots of Filipino Professors wants to acquire the best ever book of Atty. Valix. Actually, Fin1 helps me a lot whenever we have our quizzes and as well as problem solving.,
i hope that Atty. Valix would have to release it’s new version of Fin1 and as well as the problem, for us to challenge(or test) our skills in every hard problems we do undertake.,
This is truly exhilarating!., I salute Mr. Valix for his patience by working out of flesh on this book.
Godbless and may God engrave your name more as our hero in Accounting Profession.,
Sir, would you please make an official website in regards of Accounting matters and Principles?.
>>hope you did it., as soon as you can

August 23, 2008 at 8:02 pm
sa mga naghahanap ng alternative na reviewer aside from the most renowned reviewer of valix and peralta (practical accounting 1), pwede din ung kay conrado uberita, practical accounting 1 din.

so long! God! so many comments that it took me half an hour to read it all, but i guess two thirds of it are not for you….aren’t you frustrated of the questions thrown at you which you cannot aNSwer?plus the fact that it has been asked for so many times already!… poor people!!!i guess, they never bothered to read all other comments!!!
>>maybe you are though… it’s been so long since you last posted n your site…
>>anyway, i just wanna share something…
I didn’t really understand what depletion is! our teacher is so weird. he didn’t discuss it and yet he added it to our exam last Friday…and the sad thing is, he will never care to discuss it ‘again’…
>>thanks ha! anyway,I’m from Cebu! I’m an aspiring student..actually,I’m really trying hard, giving my best shot for this career and yet, I’m almost drowning!!!
September 20, 2008 at 8:39 pm
anyway…may i ask for 1 favor?..will you send me an illustration on agricultural?biological assets-IAS41?
September 22, 2008 at 8:14 am
Depletion is much like depreciation, only that the former pertains to the use of natural resources while the latter pertains to the usual wear and tear of any other assets.
In computing for depletion, it is essential that you have the estimate of how much is the reserve, so you can accurately divide the acquisition cost of the asset (cost of land, permits, MPSA, if any, etc.) over the life of the mine asset.
Agricultural/biological assets include poultry stocks, crops, etc.

if any one is looking for a new practical acounting 1 book..try the book of Reynaldo Ocampo both Practical accounting 1 and Auditing Problems…i consider him the best in IAS and IFRS…if ur interested just drop by PRTC located infront of UE manila recto gate
November 17, 2008 at 2:02 pm
well, i’m one of the lucky ones who met the great conrado valix and am proud to say a product of CPAR.. Well i think the reason they don’t have a website is that they prioritize more on the review proper not on advertising CPAR.. and it really yields great result..
December 6, 2008 at 8:23 pm
