A full set of solutions is provided, some within the book and some as a download available for lecturers, found in the Instructor’s Manual at go.pearson.com/uk/he/resources.

 

Refreshed content reflecting changes in key definitions and financial standards

This places accounting in a wider context and demonstrates the relevance of these to performing key activities of a business.
  • REVISED – Section on revenue recognition has been altered to reflect recent changes in accounting rules.
  • REVISED – definitions of certain key terms have been re-tooled wherever they occur in the book, to reflect the way these are now to be understood according to developments in recent years. This includes the definitions of assets and liabilities.

Reach every student with MyLab

 

- Teach your course your way: Your course is unique. So whether you’d like to build your own assignments, teach multiple sections, or set prerequisites, MyLab gives you the flexibility to easily create your course to fit your needs. It now includes an increased number of exercises and problems to assign for practice and formative or summative assessment.

  • UPDATED – For this 10th edition, over 45 previously static questions have been turned into algorithmic ones, which means that each student works on a numerical problem that is individual to him or her. This brings the total number of algorithmic questions in MyLab to over 300.
