This is the book that created the course in cost accounting! The 11/e now integrates strategy into every chapter. New "Decision Points" highlight key management decisions to be made using cost accounting information. New "Margin Notes" assist with student readability though additional explanations, helpful hints, and examples. Every chapter now includes Excel Application Problems. The package is expanded to include a FREE Student CD-ROM (with new text copies) that includes PowerPoints, videos, and spreadsheet templates) and an Instructor's CD-ROM with all print and technology resources (provides maximum resources and maximum portability). There are on-line courses, cases, and streaming videos.
