With its engaging learning and assessment tools, CengageNOWv2™ supports the entire student workflow, from motivation to mastery. For instructors, CengageNOWv2 provides control and customization with the opportunity to tailor the learning experience to improve outcomes.

CengageNOW™ Meets the Needs of All Types of Students
  • CENGAGENOWV2 HELPS ELEVATE STUDENT THINKING. Content addresses each stage of the learning process from motivation to mastery. CengageNOWv2 motivates and prepares your students to learn with practice opportunities that better prepare them for the exam. Carefully crafted tools help students make connections and see the big picture.
  • CASES AND EXAMPLES PROVIDE SUPERIOR CONTEXT AND ENCOURAGE CRITICAL THINKING. A continuing case features Starbucks while examples from other highly recognizable companies, such as Coca Cola, help students understand why accounting information is important. Students also gain a better understanding of the implications that accounting information holds for today’s financial statement users.
  • “REAL REPORTS” MOTIVATE READERS TO APPLY CONCEPTS. This unique feature enables students to interact with excerpts from actual annual reports, analyze this information, and apply what they have learned by answering corresponding questions.
  • BOOK EMPHASIZES WHY ACCOUNTING MATTERS USING POSITIVE EXAMPLES. Chapter-opening vignettes and meaningful examples highlight why the accounting information matters to investors, creditors, and other stakeholders. The positive tone in these examples illustrates how accounting information significantly helps decision makers and motivates students for further study. The authors purposefully avoid the types of pathological examples, such as frequent references to Enron, that some texts use.
  • IFRS COVERAGE AND APPLICATIONS CLARIFY THESE GLOBAL STANDARDS. “International Dimension” features illustrate the differences between International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and U.S. GAAP. Accompanying IFRS Applications demonstrate how journal entries and financial statements are prepared under IFRS. When differences are significant, the feature shows side-by-side comparisons of excerpts prepared under both U.S. GAAP and IFRS. End-of-chapter IFRS assignments highlight real company financial statements from international companies, such as Louis Vuitton and Nestlé.
  • “LOOKING AHEAD” PREVIEWS SIGNIFICANT INDUSTRY CHANGES ON THE HORIZON. This insightful feature exposes a number of significant accounting-related changes expected in the future, including the changes in lease accounting, financial statement presentation, and other important pending developments.
  • CODIFICATION APPLICATIONS PROVIDE A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE. Your students can use THE FASB’S ACCOUNTING STANDARDS CODIFICATION: A USER-FRIENDLY GUIDE as part of this edition’s online collection of digital resources. Students learn how to use codification step-by-step. Brief assignments in the Guide and comprehensive assignments in the main book’s end-of-chapter materials encourage students to research independently and become familiar with using codification effectively. This resource is available on the book’s companion website.
  • NEXT-LEVEL REQUIREMENTS ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO MASTER ADVANCED THINKING SKILLS. These requirements within select end-of-chapter questions require students to go beyond the basic understanding of accounting rules and procedures and develop critical-thinking and decision-making skills. Specific open-ended requirements are now converted into fill-in-the-blank questions within CengageNOW™v2 and are automatically gradable assignments.
