Financial Accounting An Introduction To Concepts Methods And Uses
I appreciate how the Statement of Cash Flows has a separate chapter towards the end of the book. Might be better to wait until that chapter instead of also discussing it in Chapter One Comprehensiveness rating: 4 see less.
Chapters contain the right amount of content. Not too long with out breakup diagrams or examples etc. The text covers all of the topics normally found in an introductory financial accounting principles of accounting I text.
The table of contents essentially mirrors the table of contents found in the leading texts in this field. I like that Comprehensiveness rating: 5 see less. I like that this text also covers the classified balance sheet, financial disclosures and partnerships. The content is up-to-date. Introductory accounting does not change often so future updates should be minimal. The authors used the year in most of the problem and examples. This might make the text "seem" out-of-date in a few years.
The book is clear and concise. The topics are clearly explained and the technical terminology is appropriate for an introductory level. The text is divided into topical chapters, which is appropriate considering that the concepts build on each other. The chapters are further subdivided into sub-topics.
This makes it easy for an instructor to pick which sub-topics to cover. Excellent organization and flow. The concepts logically build upon each other and the material is presented in a clear fashion.
The HTML interface is excellent. The book has good graphics, end of chapter content, and even video examples. Excellent book that is comparable to any of the leading financial accounting titles. The authors even provide end of chapter problems, videos, and interactive Excel problems for students.
Overall, a great resource! I commend the authors for making something of this caliber freely available. The content of this textbook matches the content and organization of most introductory financial accounting textbooks.
It is written by Canadian authors, but is relevant to US students. The text begins by explaining the role of financial The text begins by explaining the role of financial accounting in society, and then describes the underlying structure of double entry accounting systems and the process of recording economic events that impact the value of the organization through the journals and the ledger. The records of these events are then summarized into the primary financial statements.
The numeric subtotals and totals on these statements are used to calculate standard financial measures and ratios used to evaluate the organization's performance.
The text's organization then proceeds sequentially through the balance sheet accounts, explaining in more detail how the accounting for each category of economic value is recorded and reported.
The author's decision to move the most complex content to the end of the book matches how most faculty choose to organize their coverage of these topics. My reviewed resulted in highest marks regarding accuracy. The only possible concern I would mention here is that the authors use a commonly used technique in chapter two which sometimes leads to students misunderstanding that revenues and expenses are not part of owners' equity until the revenues and expenses are closed at year end to retained earnings.
It is my preference to teach introductory students that revenues and expenses are distinct and separate from equity, and then explain that revenues and expenses ultimately get closed to equity. So, this is not an inaccuracy by the authors, just a point that some instructors may want to know before adopting the textbook. It is my opinion that the content of this textbook will be relevant and current for at least a decade.
Any changes made to accounting principles, Canadian or International, will be very easy and straightforward to update. It is my opinion that the clarity of this text is very high. The authors are succinct and use visuals often to highlight the theoretical structures. This test is very consistent with the framework that is set up by the authors in the beginning of the text. The textbook is very clearly divided into separable modules, making it easy for both students to read and for instructors to choose which modules to include in their course.
It begins by explaining the role of financial accounting in society, and then describes the underlying structure of double entry accounting systems and the process of recording economic events that impact the value of the organization through the journals and the ledger. The online text worked perfectly in my Chrome browser. The end of chapter exercises and problems are perfectly formatted on the screen.
All assessment materials quizzes, exams, etc. I found the grammar to be very clear, concise and very effective.
Because the book is written by Canadians, expenses are sometimes referred to as revenue expenditures, which does not match how US textbooks refer to expenses, but is perhaps a better learning tool, as the expenses are always recorded in the period in which they match the revenue generation, so I support the authors' choices regarding how they refer to the difference between assets capital expenditures and expenses revenue expenditures. The textbook adequately refers to the international accounting standards.
That is the only cultural relevance which is relevant to introductory financial accounting. I found this textbook and its exercises to be a useful teaching and learning tool. Instructors and students have access to pre-made PowerPoint slides, exercises and problems, and there is the option to enrol in an online service for online assessments, which seem to have student feedback capabilities in addition to assessment gathering capabilities.

We take concepts, methods, and uses to be the central elements in learning and teaching about financial accounting. Most introductory financial accounting textbooks state these, or similar, objectives. Textbooks differ in their relative emphases on concepts, methods, and uses. To learn accounting, students must develop the ability to conceptualize the transactions that accounting summarizes and the process of summarization. Without such concepts, students will have difficulty focusing on the relevant issues in new and different situations. Accordingly, each chapter identifies important accounting concepts and includes numerical examples illustrating their application. Methods We place enough emphasis on accounting procedures to enable students to interpret, analyze, and evaluate published financial statements.

- Усталая улыбка промелькнула на его лице. - И потом, я не. Рядом со мной Сьюзан Флетчер. В тот момент Сьюзан поняла, за что уважает Тревора Стратмора.
Сьюзан была настолько ошеломлена, что отказывалась понимать слова коммандера. - О чем вы говорите. Стратмор вздохнул.
Дэвид, прости. Он увидел пятна света. Сначала слабые, еле видимые на сплошном сером фоне, они становились все ярче. Попробовал пошевелиться и ощутил резкую боль. Попытался что-то сказать, но голоса не .
Внезапная пустота, разверзшаяся вокруг него, была невыносима. Сьюзан равнодушно смотрела на ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Она понимала, что огненный шар, заточенный в керамическую клетку, скоро вырвется наружу и поглотит. Она почти физически ощущала, как этот шар поднимается вверх все быстрее, пожирая кислород, высвобождаемый горящими чипами. Еще немного - и купол шифровалки превратится в огненный ад.
Коммандер отпустил Сьюзан и повернулся к своему детищу стоимостью два миллиарда долларов. Глаза его расширились от ужаса. - Нет! - Он схватился за голову.
Мне не нужно напоминать. Через тридцать секунд она уже сидела за его столом и изучала отчет шифровалки. - Видишь? - спросил Бринкерхофф, наклоняясь над ней и показывая цифру.
Посверкивая в красноватом свете туннельных ламп, перед ними возникла стальная дверь. Фонтейн набрал код на специальной углубленной панели, после чего прикоснулся к небольшой стеклянной пластинке. Сигнальная лампочка вспыхнула, и массивная стена с грохотом отъехала влево.
- Я обнаружил, что кто-то обошел систему фильтров вручную. Эти слова были встречены полным молчанием. Лицо Стратмора из багрового стало пунцовым.
На мониторе появилось символическое изображение конверта - это значило, что пришло сообщение по электронной почте. Сьюзан бросила быстрый взгляд на Хейла, но тот был всецело поглощен своим компьютером. Затаив дыхание, Сьюзан дважды щелкнула по конверту.
