Overview

Wahlen/Jones/Pagach's INTERMEDIATE ACCOUNTING, 2E and CengageNOWv2 address the issue of student confidence in the Intermediate Accounting course like no other product on the market. The print and digital resources help students understand the course rigor and time requirements of the Intermediate course before that first exam, and the CengageNOWv2 Adaptive Study Plan and in-text "Got it?" quick checks keep students on track, building confidence with detailed remediation and thorough explanations that build a pathway to success. All of this is accomplished without sacrificing the book's approachable writing style that uses recognizable, familiar companies such as an ongoing Starbucks case, and examples from familiar companies, such as Coca Cola, Louis Vuitton, and Nestlé. This edition presents the latest information on the new Revenue Recognition Standards. After carefully considering the most effective methods for covering this topic, the authors have incorporated updates throughout the book with special spotlight coverage in Chapter 17.

After carefully considering the most effective methods for covering this topic, the authors have incorporated updates throughout the book with special spotlight coverage in Chapter 17.
  • NEW CENGAGENOWv2 HELPS CLOSE THE GAP BETWEEN HOMEWORK AND EXAM PERFORMANCE. The new Multi-Panel View enables students to see all the elements of a problem on one screen, making it easier for them to navigate the problem and understand the accounting system. The new Adaptive Feedback responds to students based upon their unique answers and alerts them to the type of error they have made, keeping students checked-in and progressing. The new Blank Sheet of Paper Experience provides a less leading response system for journal entries and financial statements that discourages over-reliance on the system. Visit www.cnowv2demo.cengage.com for more information and an interactive demo.
  • NEW "GOT IT?" QUICK CHECK AT THE END OF EACH SECTION ALLOWS STUDENTS TO IMMEDIATELY CHECK THEIR COMPREHENSION OF A TOPIC. A helpful "Got It?" series of questions appears after coverage of each Learning Objective to confirm students understand the material presented and are ready to continue in the chapter. Students have the opportunity to spend additional time reviewing and mastering a concept before moving ahead.
  • NEW "REVIEW CENTERS" AT THE END OF EACH CHAPTER SUMMARIZE ALL MAJOR CONCEPTS FROM THE CHAPTER AT A GLANCE. These timely Review Centers condense and summarize review material for each Learning Objective. These review features also present Key Terms and Formulas grouped by Learning Objective for quick review. This at-a-glance resource is ideal in saving time as students find chapter highlights in one consistent place that's easy to locate in each chapter.
  • NEW ADAPTIVE STUDY PLAN IN CENGAGENOWV2 PROVIDES A REMEDIATION PATHWAY. The NEW Adaptive Study Plan is an assignable/gradable study center that adapts to each student's unique needs and provides a remediation pathway to keep students progressing. Students first take a chapter-level quiz consisting of randomized questions that cover both conceptual and procedural aspects of the chapter. Next, feedback is provided explaining why the answer is right or wrong. Based on the quiz results, students are provided a remediation path that includes media assets and algorithmic practice problems to help them improve their understanding of the course material. The Adaptive Study Plan is assignable/gradable in CengageNOWv2 and available for self-study and review.
  • NEW SHOW ME HOW VIDEOS IN CENGAGENOWV2 HELP CLARIFY CONCEPTS FOR STUDENTS. New Show Me How problem demonstrations provide a step-by-step model of a similar problem.

  • STARBUCKS CONTINUING THREAD CASE INTEGRATES ACTUAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION THROUGHOUT THE BOOK. Students are motivated and engaged by the integration of the real financial information and business strategy of Starbucks in discussions and examples throughout this edition. Specific end-of-chapter applications demonstrate how a wide variety of accounting concepts apply to a single company.
  • "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.
  • 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 changes in the future, including the ongoing convergence between U.S. GAAP and IFRS, proposed changes to the financial statement presentation, and other 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 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 in CengageNOW™ and are automatically gradable assignments.
  • CENGAGENOWv2 helps elevate student thinking with content that addresses each stage of the learning process from motivation to mastery. CengageNOWv2 motivates and prepares students to learn, provides practice opportunities that better prepare students for the exam, and helps students achieve mastery with tools to help them make connections and see the big picture.
