Summary

Skousen introduces students to basic accounting concepts, excites them by using lots of real world examples (both U.S. and international), provides some basic accounting knowledge, and then shows how accounting is used and analyzed in actual case situations.

Designed for the first introductory course taught at two- and four-year schools that prefer equal coverage of financial and managerial topics, this book does not take an encyclopedic approach to every possible nuance of financial statement preparation or alternative way to perform accounting functions.
