Management Accounting Summary

Management Accounting: Principles And Practice Textbook by Alan Upchurch

This introductory textbook is written for the first/second year undergraduate student and has been designed to meet the needs of these students. Whilst the contents of the typical book in this area is professional-course driven and heavily technical, this text provides a better balance between technical and non-technical content, which much better meets the need of the undergraduate, particularly the non-accounting student. Management Accounting is substantial in content but is not of an intimidating size. It offers a range of questions and answers specially written for the book, not reproduced from professional past papers. The support package is comprehensive and innovative, consisting of Power Point presentations, OHT masters, solutions and an MCQ testbank. Above all, the book brings management accounting into the real world by the extensive use of FT case studies, and is written in an interesting ans accessible style. The book takes account of modern economic reality by not focusing excessively on the manufacturing industry, but also including service and public sector organisations in the picture.
