Description

Drury's Management & Cost Accounting is the market-leading European text on management accounting and is a comprehensive authority on all aspects of the subject.

This accompanying Student's Manual is a workbook that comprises a set of extra problems and solutions that correspond with the chapters of the main text. Together, the main text and the Student's manual form an ideal learning package. The problems and solutions allow students to pursue topics in more depth and to concentrate on the application of principles in management and cost accounting. The key topics are covered in detail and provide a superb opportunity to practise answering exam questions, many of which are taken from past papers of professional accountancy bodies such as CIMA, ACCA, AAT, ICAEW and ICAI.

For the last 40 years, Professor Colin Drury has been at the forefront of helping students learn the key concepts and processes in management and cost accounting through his bestselling textbooks, which have been widely recommended by the main professional accounting bodies for their examinations. He was an active researcher throughout his career and his research had been published in around 100 professional and academic journals. In recognition for his contribution to accounting education and research, Drury received a lifetime achievement award by the British Accounting Association in 2009.
