Applying Excel: This new feature, which has been added to Chapters 2-13 of the text and Connect Accounting, gives students the opportunity to practice using Excel formulas to build their own worksheets. They are then asked a series of 'what if' questions, all of which illustrate the relationship among various pieces of accounting data. The Applying Excel feature links directly to the concepts introduced in the chapter, providing students with an invaluable opportunity to apply what they have learned using a software they will use throughout their careers, whether they become an accountant or not.
Chapter 1: This chapter has been completely overhauled to help all business students better understand why managerial accounting is relevant to their future careers.
Chapter 2: This chapter has been extensively rewritten to include coverage of mixed costs and contribution format income statements. The redundant coverage of the schedule of cost of goods manufactured has been eliminated so that it is now only covered in the Job Order Costing chapter. The comparison of financial and managerial accounting has been moved to Chapter 1.
Chapter 14: This chapter has been completely overhauled to simplify the process of creating a statement of cash flows.
