Accounting: Tools for Business Decision Making, 5th Edition, Paul D. Kimmel

Accounting Tools for Business Decision Making, 5th Edition

With this 5th edition, readers will acquire a practical set of tools and the confidence they need to use them effectively in making business decisions. The authors follow a “macro- to micro-” strategy by starting with a discussion of real financial statements first, rather than starting with the Accounting Cycle. The objective is to establish how a financial statement communicates the financing, investing, and operating activities of a business to users of accounting information. This motivates readers by grounding the discussion in the real world, showing them the relevance of the topics covered to their careers. New content features such as a fresh and focused approach to Excel, “People, Profit, Planet”, a revised continuing managerial case, and new managerial accounting videos will also engage students and differentiate Kimmel Accounting 5e from the prior edition.

Fundamental Financial Accounting Concepts, 8th Edition

Course: Fundamental Financial Accounting Concepts 8th Edition by Edmonds/McNair/Olds is ideal for the undergraduate introductory financial accounting course, specifically for those wanting to focus on the relationships between business events and financial statements. This text is also appealing to those instructors looking for a shorter text that focuses more on “key” financial accounting concepts rather than rather than procedural details, and to those desiring a stronger user orientation in their course. Overview: Students are often overwhelmed by the amount of information presented in the introductory financial accounting course.
