Summary: This is an exciting revision of one of the most respected Principles books in the marketplace. The new edition benefits from the addition of two well-known and admired academics, Jan Williams and Susan Haka. Susan Haka’s background in managerial accounting is particularly useful in the second half of the book. Collectively, they provide a wealth of teaching and research experience that greatly enhances this eleventh edition. All aspects of this text has bee...show moren evaluated and revised to create a more user friendly, dynamic textbook while maintaining the foundation that has kept Meigs successful throughout the years. Features:
The new co-authors have made a significant, positive impact. The first four chapters have been reworked to offer a better balance between using and creating financial information. Students will be introduced to how accounting and the ''information age'' merge to impact the world of business.
Financial Statement Analysis has been moved from Chapter 8 to Chapter 14, following the Statement of Cash Flows chapter to offer a more student-friendly approach.
All new comprehensive problems have been created and streamlined for this edition. Comprehensive problems will be anywhere between 3 - 5 pages, and are throughout the book (3 in the financial chapters and 2 in the managerial chapters)
New chapter on Global Issues in Accounting (Ch. 15) offers broad coverage of the contemporary accounting issues which affect the international business world.
All managerial accounting chapters have been revised, and a new chapter has been created which addresses Activity Based Costing.
Completely redesigned for a more contemporary, student-friendly focus. Brand new chapter openers capture student interest by relating accounting concepts to current scenarios taken from recent BusinessWeek articles.
New pedagogy includes ''Net Connections'' sections, which take your students to the ''information superhighway'' on the Internet; ''Your Turn'' boxes, which place students in the role of a decision maker and user of accounting information (ie: marketing manager, financial analyst, banker); ''Cash Effects'' sections, which show how a transaction or method impacts the cash flow of an organization.
All new, improved software will accompany the eleventh edition: General Ledger Applications Software, Spreadsheet Applications Template Software, Ready Shows PowerPoint Slides, and new Computest Test Bank.
