The authors give enough [EOC] material that the professor can do some of the exercises and problems in class for the students and still have enough problems and exercises to assign to the students for homework. The exercises and problems tie in nicely with the chapter material. They emphasize the important points the students need to know.
I find the Real World Notes to be especially useful. I often discuss them in class. I think it is quite useful to give the students something that they can relate to in the real world.
I especially like the "Special Activities" section. It allows me to integrate writing skills into the accounting class. It also gives the students insight into real companies that they are familiar with and how the chapter topics relate to the real world.
The Encore section is good and interesting. It provides an example of how critical thinking is used in accounting to make real decisions.
