November 1997 The seventh edition of Hermanson/Edwards/Maher continues its tradition as a solid, teachable text. Known for its informal writing style and use of the active voice, ACCOUNTING has earned a loyal following. The book has 18 chapters devoted to financial accounting, and 8 chapters covering managerial accounting. The ''user orientation'' will be retained, with an emphasis on the uses of financial statements, early introduction of cash flow, and integration of financial ratios. The corporate approach remains the focus.
The ''Uses of Technology'' boxes have been updated to include Internet advances, network computing, and other related technologies that are rapidly impacting the business world.
End -of-chapter material has been substantially changed and updated, including even more ''Group Projects'' per chapter to enhance collaborative learning opportunities.
