Introduction to Management Accounting
Prentice Hall, 2002 - Cost accounting - 789 pages
Get refreshed with Horngren/Sundem/Stratton's Introduction to Management Accounting, Twelfth Edition. This best-selling book offers a relevant, real-world decision-making approach to management accounting. Readers develop a solid understanding of costs and cost behavior and the use of cost information for planning and control decisions, not just inventory valuation. The Twelfth Edition now includes user-oriented real-world company examples such as Nantucket Nectars and McDonalds; new "Cognitive Exercises" and "Business First" boxes, new on-line courses and tutorial software package resources, and a new CD-ROM series, "Mastering Accounting." It emphasizes the notion that "You need to understand the business first, before you can understand the accounting of business." The first part of the book focuses on decision-making in business using accounting information -- which is then carried as a theme through the rest of the book. Examples are taken from nonprofit, retail, service, selling, and administrative situations as well as manufacturing.
