Financial Accounting: Making the Connection 1e, has been developed based on the great success ofFinancial Accounting 2e, Spiceland, Thomas, Herrmann. 2e was developed with feedback fromover 330reviewers and focus group participantsfrom across the country. With the usage of digital resources growing exponentially, and high Connect usage rates among instructors and students using Financial Accounting, 2e,Financial Accounting: Making the Connection 1e, removes all end of chapter content from the 2e print text, and houses it exclusively in Connect. The result is the same highly successful content contained in 2e, without the added page length of end of chapter problems and exercises.Text with Connect Plus is a mandatory package. (ISBN 0077606191) Financial Accounting: Making the Connection, 1e also provides additional study materials and explanations through short tutorial videos and practice activities that can be accessed via SmartPhone by scanning the Quick Response codes in the margin. Just like withFinancial Accounting 2e, the authors, David Spiceland, Wayne Thomas and Don Herrmann, have developed a unique text based on over 50 collective years of experience in the classroom. They've brought together best practices like highlightingCommon Mistakes, offering frequentLet's Reviewexercises, integrating the course with a runningContinuing Problem, demonstrating the relevance of the course to non-majors with aCareer Corner, and communicating it all in a student-friendlyConversational Writing Style.
