Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • Hallmark features:
  • Example Exercises: Based on extensive market feedback, Example Exercises were developed to reinforce concepts and procedures in a bold, new way. Like a teacher in the classroom, students follow the authors' example to see how to complete accounting applications in the textbook. Each Example Exercise references the parallel Practice Exercises in the homework so students get the accounting experience they need. Animated Example Exercises are also tied to the Practice Exercises within CengageNOW to provide students with an easily accessible audiovisual walk-through of how to solve these questions.
  • Complete Learning System: Students can easily locate the information they need to efficiently master course concepts using the "Guiding Principles System." At the beginning of every chapter, students have a map of the chapter objectives, related topics and outcomes, Example Exercises in the chapter, and corresponding Practice Exercises in the homework. The "At a Glance" chapter summary completes this proven system that leads students quickly to the information they need.
  • Blueprint Problems:
  • Market Leading End-of-Chapter Material: Students need to practice accounting so that they can understand and use it. To give students the greatest possible advantage in the real world, ACCOUNTING, 25e, goes beyond presenting theory and procedure with comprehensive, time-tested end-of-chapter material.
  • Relevant Chapter Openers: Building on the strengths of past editions, these openers use real companies, such as Twitter and Google, to help students relate to accounting and business concepts in the chapter. They provide invaluable insight into real practice. Chapter openers created especially for this edition focus on interesting companies such as Facebook, Scripps-Howard, Rhapsody and Razor and are accompanied by a chapter-opening video in CengageNOW.
  • Financial Analysis and Interpretation: Beginning with Chapter 1, the "Financial Analysis and Interpretation" section at the end of each financial accounting chapter introduces relevant key ratios used throughout the textbook. Students connect with the business environment as they learn how stakeholders interpret financial reports. This section covers basic analysis tools that students will use again in Chapter 17, "Financial Statement Analysis." Furthermore, students can test their proficiency with these tools through special activities and exercises at the end of each chapter. To ensure a consistent presentation, a unique icon is used for both the section and related end-of-chapter materials and learning objectives take the accounting concepts presented in the chapter and apply them to real world situations (i.e. horizontal analysis, segment analysis, revenue per employee, dividend yield).
  • Business Connections and Comprehensive Real-World Notes: Students get a close-up look at how accounting operates in the marketplace through a variety of items in the margins and in the "Business Connections" boxed features. In addition, a variety of end-of-chapter exercises and problems employ real-world data to give students a feel for the material that accountants see daily. Real companies are highlighted in blue font throughout each chapter for a consistent presentation.
  • Integrity, Objectivity, and Ethics in Business: In each chapter, these cases help students develop their ethical compass. Often coupled with related end-of-chapter activities, these cases can be discussed in class or students can consider the cases as they read the chapter. Both the section and related end-of-chapter materials are indicated with a unique icon for a consistent presentation.
  • Continuing Case Study: Students follow a fictitious company, NetSolutions, throughout Chapters 1–6, which demonstrates a variety of transactions. To help students connect to the world of accounting, the NetSolutions transactions in Chapters 1 and 2 are often paired with non-business events to which students can easily relate.
  • Illustrative Problem and Solution: A solved problem models one or more of the chapter's assignment problems so that students can apply the modeled procedures to end-of-chapter materials.
  • IFRS Coverage: IFRS icons throughout the text point to specific chapter content that is then detailed in our IFRS table. This table outlines the IFRS impact on accounting concepts.
  • Blueprint Problems in CengageNOW: Blueprint Problems are designed to help students understand the fundamental accounting concepts and their associated building blocks and not just the formulas or journal entries required for a single concept. This allows students to get the overall big picture and to begin to see how accounting concepts are interrelated in one succinct discussion.

What's New

  • NEW ACTIVATION EXERCISES FOR FINANCIAL CHAPTERS: These author-written Activation Exercises in CengageNOW and Aplia are an extension of the Complete Learning System and focus on helping students develop a better understanding of (1) key terms and definitions, (2) the economics of business transactions, (3) how these transactions are recorded in the accounting system, and where relevant, (4) how these transactions are ultimately reflected in the financial statements. The Activation Exercise interactive structure builds the critical thinking skills that are necessary for students to succeed and can be used as an introduction to topics or for review and assessment.
  • NEW ANIMATED ACTIVITIES: Animated Activities in CengageNOW and Aplia are the perfect pre-lecture assignment to expose students to concepts before class! These illustrations visually guide students through selected core topics using a realistic company example to illustrate how the concepts relate to the everyday activities of a business. Animated Activities are assignable or available for self-study and review.
  • NEW BLUEPRINT CONNECTIONS: Blueprint Connections in CengageNOW and Aplia are shorter extensions of the Blueprint Problems that build upon concepts covered and introduced within the Blueprint Problems. These scenario-based exercises help reinforce students' knowledge of the concept, strengthen their analytical skills and are useful as in-class activities or as homework/review after lecture and before the exam.
  • NEW AUTHOR-WRITTEN "Check My Work" FEEDBACK: The written feedback available when students click on "Check My Work" in CengageNOW has been revised by the authors to achieve a more holistic student learning experience.
  • NEW POST-SUBMISSION FEEDBACK: Where appropriate, source calculations and further explanation has been added alongside the solution in CengageNOW to help students understand where they went wrong in solving end-of-chapter items.
  • NEW CONCEPTUAL CONVERSION QUESTIONS: End-of-chapter questions or requirements within larger questions that were previously short answer have been converted to be assignable & gradable within CengageNOW and Aplia. This allows you to better assess students' conceptual understanding of topics, something that has previously been difficult within an online homework system. Green pencil icons in the print text denote which questions have been converted into this format in the technology.
  • NEW EXCEL "Try It" TUTORIALS: Located in the Study Tools Tab in CengageNOW, these activities provide students with basic tutorials on how to use Excel to solve accounting problems. Students practice accounting and manipulate spreadsheets using basic Excel® formulas in a simple step-by-step format. The tutorials reinforce the accounting concepts and help build students' Excel competency.
  • REFRESHED REAL-WORLD INTEGRATION: As with every new edition, the authors have ensured that new real-world companies have been added, real-world data has been updated, and names and values of end-of-chapter material have been changed.
  • REORGANIZATION OF CHAPTER 6: "Accounting for Merchandising Businesses" (Chapter 6) was re-organized to start with purchases and sales transactions and then end with the creation of the multi-step income statement. This model more intuitively follows a similar structure as the cycle chapters (starting with the entries and moving to the financial statements).
  • EXPANDED INVENTORY COVERAGE: "Inventories" (Chapter 7) now includes coverage of the weighted cost method under a perpetual inventory system. The trend to cover perpetual inventory (vs. periodic) and the wide use of popular accounting software packages that use average cost-perpetual (point-of-sale) led to this change. All exhibits and illustrations pertaining to the weighted cost method have been updated.
  • InfoTrac® Student Collections are specialized databases expertly drawn from the Gale Academic One library. Each InfoTrac® Student Collection enhances the student learning experience in the specific course area related to the product. These specialized databases allow access to hundreds of scholarly and popular publications - all reliable sources - including journals, encyclopedias, and academic reports.
