With its focus on conceptual framework fundamentals and critical thinking, Gordon, Raedy, and Sannella’s Intermediate Accounting, 2nd Edition gives readers the opportunity to develop problem-solving skills, apply their judgment, and work with real company financials. After mastering these essential skills, students will be ready to pass the CPA exam, and able to think like accountants.
