Many corporate managers struggle to see the relevance of accounting in their everyday responsibilities. Weygandt shows them how managerial accounting information fits in the larger context of business so they are better able to understand the important concepts. The new Do It! feature reinforces the basics by providing quick-hitting examples of brief exercises. The chapters also incorporate the All About You (AAY) feature as well as the Accounting Across the Organization (AAO) boxes that highlight the impact of accounting concepts. With these features, readers will have numerous opportunities to think about what they have just read and then apply that knowledge to sample problems.
