Accounting Tools For Business Decision Making – kimmel Weygandt Kieso – 5th Edition


With this 5th edition, readers will acquire a practical set of tools and the confidence they need to use them effectively in making business decisions. The authors follow a “macro- to micro-” strategy by starting with a discussion of real financial statements first, rather than starting with the Accounting Cycle. The objective is to establish how a financial statement communicates the financing, investing, and operating activities of a business to users of accounting information.

This motivates readers by grounding the discussion in the real world, showing them the relevance of the topics covered to their careers. New content features such as a fresh and focused approach to Excel, People, Profit, Planet , a revised continuing managerial case, and new managerial accounting videos will also engage students and differentiate Kimmel Accounting 5e from the prior edition.
