A direct, realistic, and efficient way to learn cost accounting. Fundamentals is short (approximately 700 pages) making it easy to cover in one semester. The authors have kept the text concise by focusing on the key concepts students need to master. Opening vignettes and In Action boxes show realistic applications of these concepts throughout.

All chapters end with a Debrief that links the topics in the chapter to the decision problem faced by the manager in the opening vignette. Comprehensive end-of-chapter problems provide students with all the practice they need to fully learn each concept.
