9780470413357: Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision Making

Proven Pedagogical Framework helps students learn accounting concepts and apply them to decision making in the business world: Includes

  • Study Objectives are first stated at the beginning of the chapter and then re-appear in the margin at each point that the objective is discussed.  The objectives are then summarized at the end of the chapter.
  • Chapter-Opening Previews are charts that visually represent the chapter’s outline.  Each of these chapter “road maps” establishes the chapter’s key concepts and their relationship to one another.
  • Business Insight boxes relate the chapter’s concepts to actual accounting situations in real business.  Four different icons identify four different points of view: Management Perspective, Ethics Perspective, Investor Perspective, International Perspective.
  • Accounting equation analyses, with cash-flow effects, appear in the margin next to key journal entries to help students understand the impact of an accounting transaction on the financial statements and cash flow.
  • Before You Go On Review It/Do It questions serve as learning checks at the end of major text sections.  Brief Do It exercises ask students to put their knowledge to work in some form of financial statements preparation.  Action Plans outline the reasoning necessary to complete them. Solutions show how problems should be solved.
  • Throughout each chapter, Decision Toolkits summarize the key features of the decision tools discussed in the prior section.
  • A Using the Decision Toolkit exercise, with a solution, challenges students to use financial information from a financial statement to make a financial decision.  This feature appears after the last Before You Go On section in each chapter.
  • Annotations in Chapter 1 explain each pedagogical element of the text the first time it appears.
  • End-of-chapter material, including Demonstration Problems, Self-Study Questions, Questions, Brief Exercises, Exercises, Problems, and Broadening Your Perspective sections, helps students develop a greater set of essential skills.

From the Publisher:

This user-friendly book teaches readers fundamental accounting procedures with an emphasis on the relationship between the procedural detail and the fundamental accounting equation. It gives readers the conceptual and procedural accounting tools they need in order to make sound internal and external business decisions.

From the Back Cover:

Now in its Fourth Edition, Kimmel, Weygandt, and Kieso’s Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision Making has been tested and approved in the classroom. Whether you measure classroom success by improved grades, students who are better prepared for the Intermediate course and their future careers, or by student evaluations at the end of the semester, Financial Accounting delivers real results.

“If you are teaching a debit/credit centered financial accounting principles class there is not a better written or organized text.  Believe me I have looked.  The supporting materials for instructors [are] also terrific.”
––Nancy Snow, University of Toledo

“The textbook is well written with good examples and homework problems.   This book is easy to understand, but is rigorous in its coverage of accounting issues.”
––Paul Brazina, La Salle University, Philadelphia

“Best presentation of material in the industry. In addition, Financial, Managerial and Intermediate all flow together for greater coverage and comprehension.”
––Vince Enslein, Clinton Community College
