Recognizing that most students will become managers, and not accountants, Jiambalvo’s Managerial Accounting, Second Edition focuses on the knowledge and skills that managers need to make good business decisions. Students and instructors alike have praised the clear and concise writing style – discussions are to the point, ideas are illustrated, and examples are presented to make the ideas concrete.
Here’s how it works:
1. Present a new business decision-making framework.
Every chapter is linked to decision making with a feature called Making Business Decisions. The feature has a Knowledge and Skills Checklist that you can use off the concepts and techniques that you’ve learned in the chapter.
2. Emphasizes two key themes.
Jiambalvo focuses on two key themes that will help you in the business world: Incremental Analysis (the analysis of the differences in revenue and in costs between decision alternatives) and You Get What You Measure! (performance measures greatly influence the behaviors of managers).
3. Provides clear, current, and concise coverage.

4. Connects concepts and techniques to the real world.
5. Includes a state-of-the-art CD-ROM and Web site, featuring:
