Description

Financial Accounting: A Global Approach presents accounting in a form familiar to major markets in the U.S., U.K., Japan, China, France and other countries, while unifying the material through international standards.  The general framework for discussion starts with international issues based on the work of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). The text also acknowledges the plethora of standards that come from other sources and helps the reader understand the heterogeneous nature of the global accounting arena. That is what the student, regardless of geographic location, will take from this book.  The text also includes a mixture of terminologies used in accounting, which will help the student to develop a global accounting vocabulary. The book has a very clear pedagogical framework including a series of complete templates for every chapter with specific examples to be used in class, as well as sample examinations.  Comprehensive case studies are embedded within the text.

The author has produced a short video explaining why this text is a must for your course - please follow this link www.yada-yada.co.uk/wiley/RodMonger/RodMongerFAaud.htm
