This resource demonstrates how to correctly set up solution formats. This new Principles of Accounting text helps students navigate their future accounting and business careers with a practical set of accounting tools and the confidence they need to use those tools effectively in making business decisions. The authors have taken a more conceptual and decision-making approach to the material, which many instructors are nowbringing into their accounting courses based on the AECC "white paper" report and other recent market trends (e.g., a reduction in Accounting majors, etc.). Kimmel, Weygandt, and Kieso motivate students by beginning with the larger picture.
