Summary: Accounting Information for Business Decisions offers an integrated approach to teaching management and financial accounting topics for the two-semester and three-quarter course. This new text is designed to help students understand how to use managment and financial accounting information for decision making. Class-tested for two years, its student-friendly style has already earned it rave reviews. The text provides an introduction to business in Chapter 1 and is the more only book to have an entire chapter (chapter 2) devoted to creative and critical thinking. A non-technical approach makes learning accounting accessible for majors and non majors, focuses students on using accounting information for decision making, and conforms with AECC guidelines for teaching accounting.
