Overview

Revised and updated to reflect the altered business terrain of the 1990s, the third edition of The McGraw-Hill 36-Hour Accounting Course is written in relaxed, refreshingly nontechnical language that you'll find easy to understand, regardless of your background or training. New chapters have been added; chapters on all the significant developments that have influenced accounting over the past ten years - from the recent emphasis on cash flow analysis to the 1986 tax reform and 1990 revenue acts, to the implications of mergers and acquisitions, and to the growing use of software packages.

In addition, this complete home-study program will give you an in-depth understanding of such vital topics as the reasoning process accountants use to interpret the effects of financial transactions upon the income and financial position of a corporation or business; the balance sheet, the income statement, and the accounting cycle; preparing cash flow statements; working capital, inventories, fixed assets and depreciation, dividends and reserves, and long-term debt; and basic cost accounting, cost standards, consolidated statements, and internal management accounting.

Like its predecessor, this new edition features an array of learning enhancements that are second to none. They include a study plan that maps out the most efficient strategy for using the book, and even suggests convenient start-and-stop points; self-tests within each chapter to ensure your comprehension every step of the way; and a 100-question final exam that you may want to try your hand at. Send in your answers. If you get 70 percent or more correct, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement. It's proof that you don't have to be a CPA to understand accounting - or to use it for competitive advantage in your business or profession!
