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.
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.

The writing style is very easy and very attractive at the same time.
I really recommend the book for starters.
The on line support is great and I think makes up quite well for being an older book.
