This new introductory text is aimed at non-specialist students of accounting and finance on a first course in the subject. It presents students with a wide-ranging survey of the basic principles of finance, financial accounting and management accounting. The unique approach taken in the first Section of the book is to look at small to medium sized business organisations and their role in the economy - how they are set up, factors in their success and failure and how they source funds for expansion. This leads to some discussion of the role of financial markets and their need for financial information. Sections 2 and 3 then give an account of financial and management accounting principles, respectively. The text is clearly written and technical jargon is minimal - any technical terms are clearly explained and a glossary of terms is provided. Illustrative case studies are used to bring the technical information to life. Business Accounting and Finance includes within the text as many examples as possible, to give students valuable practice in using their new skills. Other pedagogic elements include objective test questions, questions based around case studies, suggested group learning activities for use in class, individual learning activities, discussion questions and more-complex questions to test more able/interested students. - Comprehensive coverage of finance, financial accounting and management accounting - Extremely clearly written with many worked examples - Large quantity of question and answer material is provided - Extensive support package including website and instructor's manual will contain additional cases, questions, self-test MCQs, sample chapters, spradsheet exercises and web links
