Description:

Needles/Powers/Crosson PRINCIPLES OF ACCOUNTING is continuously evolving to meet the needs of today's learner. This edition's new structure is based on research about the best way to deliver content to students and to mirror the way instructors have told us they teach! The chapters in Needles/Powers/Crosson have been organized into the Three Section Approach, which helps students more easily digest the content. The first section is Concepts and focuses on the overarching accounting concepts that require consistent reiteration throughout the course. With a clear understanding of the concepts, students are then ready to experience the second section--Accounting Applications. Here students practice the application of accounting procedures with features like "Try It" and a new transaction analysis model, which clearly illustrates how transactions are the result of business decisions and recorded in a way to show their effects on the financial statements. Finally, students utilize section three, Business Applications. This section illustrates how the concepts and procedures are used to make business decisions. Real company examples are used throughout the chapter to show students the relevance of the material. This logical progression through the material is further supported in the online environment in CengageNOW with the Tri-Level Problem. This problem mirrors the Three Section Approach and connects the sections to facilitate a more complete understanding. These substantial changes will make students more efficient learners and prepare them to face a business world increasingly complicated by ethical issues, globalization, and technology.
