Perfect for non-accounting majors, accounting topics are presented in small, manageable segments (two to five units per chapter), using clear language and plentiful visuals. Each new point is reviewed and reinforced in several ways before the next concept is introduced, and each chapter ends with questions, a self-review quiz, and practical application problems. The friendly, personal writing style and use of second colour reassures students intimidated by numbers, while an outstanding supplements package provides additional support.
