Appropriate for accounting majors AND non-majors. In Chapter 1, students are introduced to an entrepreneur who decides to create his own business (Tom's Wear). In subsequent chapters, students read this running case example and learn financial accounting concepts through Tom's experiences as he grows and expands his business. This is the business process approach: Reimers 1) teaches students about the way a business works and 2) THEN shows how accounting fits into business processes. All of the traditional financial statements and the accounting equation are emphasized, but the focus is on how accounting relates to business processes. Excel Application Problems, financial statements, internal controls, and business risks are integrated into every chapter. Chapter 4 on accounting procedures (debits and credits) may be included or omitted based upon instructor preference.

STUDENTS LEARN BETTER WITH REIMERS!
THE BEST CHOICE FOR ACCOUNTING MAJORS AND NON-MAJORS
If you're an accounting major, here's some good news! Jane L. Reimers' Financial Accounting: A Business Process Approach covers all of the core topics critical to the financial accounting course. If you're a non-major, you're in luck too. Why? Because Reimers emphasizes how accounting relates to and reports on business activities. The accounting issues are presented in the context of running a business—something you are very likely to do in your future career!
WHERE WE'VE BEEN AND WHERE WE'RE GOING
You always know what's important in Reimers. How? Because each chapter sets the stage for students with a quick overview of what they just learned ("Here's Where You've Been...") and where they're headed ("Here's Where You're Going...") so that students are prepared to tackle new concepts.
