Managerial Accounting teaches business students how to use accounting to make better decisions and improve performance. Engaging case studies and the popular ‘Manager’s Point of View’ boxes illustrate how concepts are applied in real world business situations. The latter add an extra dimension to your learning, as they are written by experienced practitioners of both management and accounting. With a minimum of technical language and a dedication to practical application, this popular text gives a refreshingly clear guide to management accounting.
