FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING: THE IMPACT ON DECISION MAKERS 10E, now available as a bundle option with CengageNOWv2, makes it easy to demonstrate that accounting is a powerful tool for business decision-making by going beyond debits and credits and keeping students focused on the big picture. For example, journal entries in the text and CengageNOWv2 require students to demonstrate the balance sheet and income statement impact of transactions, helping students see how business events ultimately impact the financial statements. In addition to exposing students to annual reports of highly recognizable companies such as Nike, Porter’s exclusive Ratio Decision-Model provides students with a framework for reading and interpreting financial statements to make decisions. The focus on financial statements and decision-making carries through to the end-of-chapter with a suite of case materials that have students reading and interpreting financial statements. In addition, this edition uses a new modular organization built for how today’s students read and assimilate information. FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING 10E is available as a bundle option with CengageNOWv2, an online learning solution that better prepares students for the exam by providing an online homework experience that is similar to what students will experience on the exam and in the real-world.
"Displaying homework, exercises, problems, reviews at the end of the chapter is too far removed from the student's actual learning/retention experience. This has historically been publishers' preference. The modular concept, as presented, however brings learning, discovery, application, solution, and recall all together for the student's benefit."
— Leslie "Andy" Speck, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
