When learning financial accounting, it is often useful for students to see real company examples of concepts relating to financial statements. While most financial accounting textbooks contain some examples from actual financial statements, they are not sufficient to illustrate most topics and methods covered during the course. Illustrative Financial Statement Extracts is intended to supplement financial accounting textbooks by illustrating practices extracted from company financial statements related to virtually all concepts that would be covered in an introductory financial accounting course. Indeed, most instructors would probably not cover all 71 topics contained in Illustrative Financial Statement Extracts.Illustrative Financial Statement Extracts contain 360 examples from a diverse set of 154 companies. Students should recognize the names of many of these companies. Each company is used from one to three times throughout the book. The company index at the end of this book can be used to locate where the companies have been used. Each of the 71 topics contain between four and six illustrative financial statement extracts. These were obtained from companies' annual reports and SEC filings (10-K, 6-K, and 20-F) pertaining to 2005 and 2006. The extracts range from simple statements to ones that are quite complex and would surely need further explanation during class discussion.The main purpose of Illustrative Financial Statement Extracts is for instructors to use it for class discussion. To assist with this, each topic begins with several suggested ideas for discussion. Instructors may find it best to discuss each topic as it is covered in class, or perhaps wait until an entire textbook chapter is covered and then discuss the related financial statement extracts. An advantage of the latter approach is that many of the topics within a chapter are intertwined. In addition to classroom discussion, Illustrative Financial Statement Extracts can serve as a basis for assigned homework exercises as well as individual or group projects. Test questions can also be created from the material in Illustrative Financial Statement Extracts.While Illustrative Financial Statement Extracts is meant to be used in introductory financial accounting courses, it can also be used in other courses that cover financial accounting or financial accounting statements. It can also be used in continuing education or executive education courses with financial accounting or financial statements.
