This edition of Frank Wood’s A-level Accounting has been restructured to follow the AQA A-level A2 syllabus. The entire AQA A2 syllabus is covered in Parts 1-3. Coverage of the equivalent OCR syllabus is completed in Part 4 of the book.
Changes to the text include the coverage of partnership accounts, now in one chapter; all company accounting in one chapter; and standard costing and variance analysis covered in a single chapter. The book builds on a first course in accounting and includes coverage of the more advanced aspects of financial and management accounting.
As well as providing instruction and practice in the preparation of accounting information, the text stresses the need for students to understand the business reasons behind accounting techniques. A continuing strength of the book is the large amount of question material. Recent past questions from the main examining bodies are included as well as a useful guide to examination techniques at A-level.
The text is in five parts:
Parts 1,2 and 3 cover the AQA syllabus. Part 4 completes coverage of the OCR syllabus. Part 5 comprises four chapters revising topics normally covered in the first year of the A-level syllabus.
