Product description

Encourage your students to take control of their own learning with a specially tailored and fully integrated online workbook. This invaluable resource is packed full of innovative features designed to support students as they revise key concepts, reinforce their understanding, and put what they have learnt into practice. Students are prompted within the textbook to interact with the online workbook and 'go back over this again' (a chance to view expanded explanations and attempt short exercises when they don't quite understand a concept), to complete numerical exercises and multiple choice questions (where they can test how well they are progressing in their learning), and to access the 'show me how to do it' video presentations (a unique opportunity to watch how more complex accounting tasks are dealt with). The textbook itself is refreshingly clear, and provides a solid foundation of the core accounting topics which non-specialist students need to study. The author's clarity of writing style demystifies the technical aspects of accounting, and the examples and explanations are relevant and well developed, making them easy to understand and relate to. This package had been developed specifically to assist non-specialist students, and tested and reviewed by business students. It can either be set as homework, used for private study, or within a class setting. An Online Resource Centre providing support for adopting lecturers also accompanies the textbook and includes: Customisable PowerPoint slides Testbank
