Thinking like an accountant isn’t just rote memorization of accounting rules. Rather, it’s developing the judgment and decision-making skills needed to form accounting estimates and evaluate financial statements critically. With its focus on conceptual framework fundamentals and critical thinking, Gordon, Raedy, and Sannella’s Intermediate Accounting, 2nd Edition gives readers the opportunity to develop problem-solving skills, apply their judgment, and work with real company financials. After mastering these essential skills, students will be ready to pass the CPA exam, and able to think like accountants.
