Description

"Survey of Accounting" is designed to cover both financial and managerial accounting in a single 16-week course, presenting the material in a style easy for non-accounting majors to grasp. It incorporates the same pedagogical innovations that have made Edmonds' financial and managerial titles such fast-growing successes in the marketplace, including his unique Horizontal Financial Statements Model and a multiple accounting cycle approach that demonstrates the impact of related events over a series of accounting cycles.show more
