Now in its sixth edition, Ingram, Albright, FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING: A BRIDGE TO DECISION MAKING continues to teach students to understand the impact of accounting information on a company's financial statements. The authors illustrate accounting not as a set of technical procedures, but as a way of identifying and understanding business problems and a means for evaluating alternative solutions. By organizing the text around the flow of information through a business, the authors provide students with a sound understanding of the accounting information system and then an analysis of the financial, investing and operating activities of the firm. This approach is especially ideal for students who will become business managers, not accountants.

The text has many excellent exercises and problems. Many problems are easy for the students to get started with due to the use of a suggested form or format and in some cases a reference to a chapter exhibit.
The self-study problems were useful and practical. They also provide models for some of the homework assignments.
I have always enjoyed using the Ingram text. I have particularly enjoyed the instructor supplement explaining cooperative learning and giving a plan for each chapter. I have used that as much as any other supplement I received.
Chapter 9 is concise, easy to read, and the material flows very well. Decision making was introduced in the chapter as being an essential element of a successful business.
