Accessible, learner-friendly and jargon-free, this best-selling text in management accounting is the ideal starting point for non-accounting students. Clear and concise it not only arms the reader with the basic principles of the subject but actively encourages students to build on these through an 'open-learning' approach, involving them in various questions and activities along the way.
The third edition has been thoroughly updated and revised improving existing features and expanding content.
Management Accounting for Non-specialists is suitable for all undergraduate and postgraduate students from any discipline taking an introductory course or module in management accounting. The 'open-learning' approach also makes it suitable for those studying independently or on distance-learning courses.
Oh NO! Why didn't I have this book while studying for my MBA?
Truth to tell, it is a bit thin, but very readable. Especially if you're not into accounting but only wants to know enough to become a pretty good manager.
Covers the basics very efficiently and fulfills its promise very well. Recommended.
