This third edition holds true to the original vision of teaching the subject from both the preparer and user perspective, but with a revision focused on greater accessibility to the variety of students taught.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Introductory accounting students are often overwhelmed and need assistance in understanding major topics of importance. POD Reviews help students understand what is most vital in the chapter information."

"POD Reviews will help students with test preparation. Quizzing at regular intervals should lead to better exam performance."

"The POD Reviews are an excellent idea. Placing them after every learning objective creates immediate feedback and affirmation of their understanding."
