Toolkit Approach shows students how to use accounting concepts to make decisions, no matter what their role. Decision-making involves critical evaluation and analysis of the information at hand, and this takes practice. At the end of each chapter, the Using the Decision Toolkit activity provides a comprehensive demonstration of an analysis of a real-world problem using the decision tools presented in the chapter. Accounting Matters theme continues to be at the centre of this new edition and further enhances the importance of accounting to all disciplines, emphasizing the relevance of accounting and the strategic use of accounting information. All About You - is a high-interest feature that links a specific aspect of the chapter's topic to students' personal lives. Each All About You feature presents a topic, offers some facts about it, poses a situation for students to think about, and offers alternative answers as a starting place for further discussion. Real world focus offers students exposure to realistic business situations. Financial information and accounting practices of real companies, including the ones that are already using IFRS like Eastern Platinum Limited (Canadian company) and Anglo American Platinum Limited, a South African mining company, are used to frame the discussion of accounting issues. All corporate information has been updated and revised to reflect the latest available financial information. A unique feature of this text is the intracompany, intercompany, and industry comparisons used when interpreting financial information, similar to what is done in the real world.
