Review quote

"Providing a balance between theory and practical relevance, this excellent text is ideally suited to both management accounting undergraduate courses and professional courses." Clare Guthrie, Principal Lecturer in Management Accounting, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK "The opportunity cost of not studying this superb textbook is that you will have forgone a great chance to master the relevant calculation techniques embedded in the management accounting profession." Sophie Hoozee, Assistant Professor in Management Accounting, IESEG School of Management Lille-Paris, France "This excellent text is relevant to our courses, especially as the assessment section is referenced to different levels of difficulty. The inclusion of more Real World Views will greatly benefit my students, particularly as few have work experience in the areas covered." Francois Benade, Senior Lecturer in Management Accounting, UNISA, South Africa
