Porter and Norton's real-world approach in FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING: THE IMPACT ON DECISION MAKERS, Sixth Edition, gives you an up-close perspective on how accounting truly affects businesses today. You will explore an appropriate "focus company" with each chapter, applying accounting principles in the context of that company's specific financial information and business strategy, giving you the real-world experience with financial data you need to succeed in business. Further, Porter and Norton's student-friendly, step-by-step decision framework guides you through a 6-step process on how to effectively use financial information early in the course, laying a stronger foundation for the more complex concepts to follow. FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING: THE IMPACT ON DECISION MAKERS, Sixth Edition, goes beyond typical texts that drill students on the numbers and procedures to address additional important issues, such as ethical dilemmas in business decisions and alternate terms you may encounter in the business world.

Review:

"Introductory accounting students are often overwhelmed and need assistance in understanding major topics of importance. POD Reviews help students understand what is most vital in the chapter information."

"POD Reviews will help students with test preparation. Quizzing at regular intervals should lead to better exam performance."

"The POD Reviews are an excellent idea. Placing them after every learning objective creates immediate feedback and affirmation of their understanding."
