Description

For courses in Principles of Accounting

Redefining tradition in the accounting course.

The tenth edition of Horngren’s Accounting presents the core content of the accounting course in a fresh format designed to help today’s learners succeed.

Built upon the foundation of the Horngren franchise, this new edition was created by an all-new author team who sought to bridge the gap between textbook content and classroom instruction techniques. New pedagogical features such as Instructor Tips & Tricks and Common Questions, Answered walk students through the material as a great instructor would, fostering deeper understanding of accounting theory and practice.

The table of contents for the tenth edition has been significantly overhauled to match the way the contemporary course is often taught. Additionally, the whole text has been put through a rigorous accuracy check, so instructors can be confident that it is up-to-date and error-free. And thorough integration between the text and MyAccountingLab places practice opportunities just a few clicks away–and provides a truly interactive learning experience.

Features

The text has been fully redesigned to appeal to today’s students and help them succeed. An open page layout engages students in learning, and new connection arrows help students more easily follow the transaction process.

New Chapter Openers present relatable stories that set up the concepts to be covered in the chapter. The implications of those concepts on a company’s reporting and decision-making processes are then discussed.

New Effects on the Accounting Equation illustrations help students see connections between transactions, as well as how transactions fit into the big picture. Located next to every journal entry, they reinforce the connections between recording a transaction and the effect those transactions have on the accounting equation.

Two new key pedagogical features mirror how the accounting course is often taught, illuminating concepts and aiding student understanding.
•    New Instructor Tips & Tricks throughout the text mimic the experience of having an experienced teacher walk a student through concepts on the board. Many include mnemonic devices or examples to help students remember the rules of accounting.
•    Rooted in the authors’ teaching experiences over the years, new Common Questions, Answered offer additional help with patterns and rules that consistently confuse students. Located in the text’s margin next to where the answer or clarification can be found, they help students better understand difficult concepts.

New Try It! exercises found after each learning objective give students opportunities to apply the concept they’ve just learned by completing an accounting problem. Links to these exercises appear throughout the eText, allowing students to practice in MyAccountingLab without interruption.

New Decisions boxes highlight common questions that business owners face, prompting students to determine the course of action they would take based on concepts covered in the chapter.

New end-of-chapter review materials help students process what they’ve learned. An initial Review section goes over the key points of the chapter. Summary Problems and Assess Your Progress tools enable students to practice using the concepts covered in the chapter. And, the Continuing Problems at the end of each chapter follow one business scenario, rather than different standalone situations, helping students to see the big picture.

A revised Table of Contents enables instructors to take a contemporary approach to accounting. Chapters on the following significant topics have been added to this new edition:
•    Accounting Information Systems
•    Partnerships
•    Investments
•    Process Costing

MyAccountingLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program that truly engages students in learning. With multimedia demos and videos that bring course material to life, and tools–such as Excel and general ledger integration–that afford frequent practice, MyAccountingLab enables students to better understand and master core concepts and skills.  And, MyAccountingLab provides educators a dynamic set of tools for gauging individual and class progress, so students stay on track and get the most out of the course.

IFRS icons throughout the text indicate the presence of information about International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
