Review

"The overwhelming response from all students is that this text is great as an introduction. It is easy to read and comprehend and the examples complement the discussion in the text." Wendy Beekes, Lancaster University

"One of the most accessible and authoritative texts in the market place, covering all the major areas of accounting and finance at an appropriate level." Malcolm Anderson, Cardiff University

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Accounting: An Introduction is renowned for its clear, accessible and uncluttered style. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the main principles of financial accounting, management accounting, and the core elements of financial management. With a clear and unequivocal focus on how accounting information can be used to improve the quality of decision making by managers, combined with a strong practical emphasis, this book provides the ideal grounding for a career in management.

Features

· Progress checks - numerous activities and exercises enable you to constantly test your understanding and reinforce learning. 

· Lively and relevant examples from the real world demonstrate the practical application and value of concepts and techniques learnt.

· Interactive ‘open-learning’ style is ideal for self-study.

· Decision-making focus on the use of accounting information, rather than its preparation, is highly appropriate for tomorrow’s business managers.

· Key terms, glossary and bulleted summaries are excellent revision aids.

This new (5th) edition incorporates numerous revisions and updates, including:

· Full incorporation of developments in International Financial Reporting Standards, which are crucial in the European and world business arena.

· Expanded coverage of break-even analysis and marginal costing.

·  Revision of activity-based costing (ABC).

·  Expansion of the coverage of non-financial measures of performance.

The text is supported by MyAccountingLab, a completely new type of educational resource. MyAccountingLab complements student learning by presenting the user with a study plan that adapts and customises to the student's individual requirements as they progress through online tests. Students can also practise problems before taking tests, and because most of these are algorithmically driven, they can practise over and over again without repetition. Additionally, students have access to an eBook, animated guides to various key topics, and guided solutions, all of which are designed to help them overcome the most difficult concepts. Both students and lecturers have access to gradebooks that allow them to track progress, and lecturers will have the ability to create new tests and activities using the large number of problems available in the question database.

Audience
Suitable for all those studying an introductory course in accounting and finance, who are seeking a thorough understanding of basic principles and underlying concepts, without going into unnecessary technical detail.

Authors
Eddie McLaney is Visiting Fellow in Accounting and Finance at the University of Plymouth.
Peter Atrill is a freelance academic and author working with leading institutions in the UK, Europe and SE Asia. He was previously Head of Business and Management at the University of Plymouth Business School.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 9 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
I'm currently using this textbook alongside an Introduction to Accounting open unit at university. It explains ideas in a very clear and easy manner, and every new concept is illustrated with an example. A highly recommended purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent student companion 9 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is brilliant when it comes to all the accounting procedures and explanations but lacks a certain analytical dimension. In my view this book is better than my friends newer version simply because it has bigger more spaced out pages, better diagram type explanations and examples. As far as I understand, the accounts formats have not changed too much between this and the newer book. Its simpler to understand this version and especially if English is your second language, the wordings are easier.
The on line support is great and I think makes up quite well for being an older book.
