International Financial Reporting Standards have been used throughout

·              Concise and logically structured

·               Extensive coverage of all introductory accounting topics, with

                every question and case study answered within the book

The text is supported by MyAccountingLab, a completely new type of
educational resource. MyAccountingLab complements student learning by
presenting the user with a study plan that adapts and customises to the
student's individual requirements as they progress through online tests.
Students can also practise problems before taking tests, and because
most of these are algorithmically driven, they can practise over and
over again without repetition. Additionally, students have access to an
eBook, animated guides to various key topics, and guided solutions, all
of which are designed to help them overcome the most difficult concepts.
Both students and lecturers have access to gradebooks that allow them to
track progress, and lecturers will have the ability to create new tests
and activities using the large number of problems available in the
question database.
