Excellent Value!  June 27, 2011

Accounting for Decision Making and Control contains philosophy and present concept to apply to the decision making. Managerial accounting is more than journal entry and computation. There is a wealth of thought provoking problems and short cases to help promote discussion and provoke your thinking on the topics discussed in each chapter. The writing is very good and the organization of the textbook is sound and helpful. I have rented this rental textbook from ecampus; it delivered in the estimated time and in a great condition.






Accounting for Decision Making and Control: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

The Seventh Edition demonstrates that managerial accounting is an integral part of the firmís organizational architecture, not just an isolated set of computational topics.

The purpose of this text is to provide students and managers with an understanding and appreciation of the strengths and limitations of an organizationís accounting system, thereby allowing them to be more intelligent users of these systems. The main purpose proposed by the author remains intact for the Seventh Edition
