With the thirteenth edition of Financial and Managerial Accounting: A Basis for Business Decisions, the Williams author team carries on the tradition of building a solid foundation for students learning basic accounting concepts. Through the revision, the authors have further refined the financial accounting topics, while slightly expanding the managerial accounting material to provide even more balance coverage in this already 50/50 split text. Hallmarks of the text, including the solid Accounting Cycle Presentation, relevant pedagogy, and high quality, end-of-chapter material have all been updated and enhanced through the revision. In addition, some important accounting software, including My Mentor and McGraw-Hill Homework Manager, have been integrated with the text to make the best use of students' study time.
