Product Description

From the Back Cover

John R. Dyson

Accounting for Non-Accounting Students

Eighth edition

Accounting for Non-Accounting Students is highly regarded for its accessibility and clarity. The book combines user-friendly language and real-world examples, making it ideal for students with little or no prior knowledge of financial or management accounting. It covers the essentials of book-keeping and the rules of accounting in a non-technical style and highlights the questions all non-accountants, wishing to excel in their studies and career, should ask.

 

Continuing the successes of past editions, the author’s unique and user-friendly features are ideal for students who may be new to accounting:

·        Special introductions explain why each chapter is important for non-accountants.

·        An up-to-date news story at the start of each chapter provides examples of some of the real-world issues accountants face every day.

·        A full-colour design aids navigation and enlivens the text.

·        'Key points' sections in each chapter summarize points to remember, and 'Check your learning' sections contain short questions to help you recap your learning.

·        Each chapter concludes with ‘Questions you should ask’.

This eighth edition of Accounting for Non-Accounting Students combines the most successful features of previous editions with some brand new material and some substantially revised chapters:

·        News clips – This new feature consists of excerpts from recent news articles, which illustrate real-world accounting in practice.

·        Chapter 2 on Accounting rules and regulations has been thoroughly revised and updated. It now includes the material included in the previous Chapter 2 (Accounting rules) and the old Chapter 9 (Information disclosure).

·        Chapter 4 on Sole trader accounts has been formed by combining the previous Chapter 4 (also called Sole trader accounts) with the old Chapter 5 (Last minute adjustments) to form a comprehensive easy-to-follow new chapter. 

·        Revised Chapter 11 on Contemporary issues covers current challenges facing the accounting world.

·        Revised Chapter 20 on Emerging issues discusses emerging issues in management accounting.

·        International accounting standards (IASs)  this new edition has been updated to include the requirements of relevant international accounting standards.

Visit the Accounting for Non-Accounting Students companion website at www.pearsoned.co.uk/dyson to access a comprehensive range of student-learning resources, including additional questions, web links for further reading and a glossary of key terms.

This book is an excellent reference tool that anyone can understand. I found the layout and language a fantastic help when trying to grapple with nasty finanacial concepts. This book allowed me to finally gain a clear understanding of the basic foundations of the financial and business world after hours of previous failure.
I will keep this book beside me as I move through a career in industry as a secret weapon to ward off the financial whizz-kids! I would thoroughly recommend this book as invaluable to anyone with an interest in the business world and keeping one step ahead!

I purchased this book on the recommendation of a co-worker (fully qualified accountant) who used the third edition while at uni. She was spot on when she told me that it is a great help to those students who come from a non-accounting background. (i.e. no A levels in accounting).

The layout is easy to follow, great self tests along the way, case studies, real world relevent news articles and even an online site with further tests.

John does a very good job of informing the reader and assumes little or no previous accounting experience. If you're new to the world of accounting or finance, this is the book for you.

Format: Paperback
The book has been chosen to be our coursebook and was a great help when I did the very basics of accounting. When it came to the second year however, the number of examples was insufficient to help students understand the topics. The explanations are good but sometimes too long. It's a good book to use as a core text but not enough to understand topics well.

Covers all the basics in understandable terms for those with no previous knowledge of the subject. Some topics are glossed over a little too quickly and some readers may find that this book used in conjunction with the Financial Times' Guide to Using and Interpreting Accounts will give a complete picture (albeit one that you have to assemble yourself!). Bargain at this price tho - well worth the 1p + P&P I paid.
