This book aims to solve complex accounting and reporting issues by focusing on applied research, which accounting graduate are expected to know about, as well as having knowledge of accounting concepts, methods and procedures typically covered in intermediate and advanced accounting courses. Using real-world case analysis and issue-based research approaches, the book helps students to develop critical thinking skills and encourages them to think creatively. Section I provides the foundation for applied professional research; Section II covers application issues.

Chapters 2 through 7 include four to six end-of-chapter 'real-world' cases in support of chapter material. The final chapter in the book provides 25 additional cases on financial accounting and reporting.
All cases are based on real companies but contain fictitious names and data. They were developed primarily from interviews, discussions, and correspondence with practicing accountants.
The cases allow students to experience unique situations for which they do not have clear solutions, just as they will encounter as accounting professionals. By stimulating discussion and not focusing purely on quantitative responses or journal entries, the cases encourage students to be active, independent learners and problem solvers rather than passive recipients of knowledge.

Revenue and Expense Recognition, Accounting Policy Issues and Overview Cases, Current Assets, Investments, Fixed and Intangible Assets, Current and Long-term Liabilities, Leases and Pensions,
