The eBook Principles Of Accounting 12th edition (PDF) is designed to cater to the needs of today’s students. The 12th edition introduces a new structure which has been developed based on research conducted among college students to determine the most effective way to deliver the content. This new structure consists of the 3 Section Approach that makes it easier for students to understand and digest the material.

The first section is Concepts, which focuses on the basic accounting concepts that require constant repetition throughout the course. Once students have a clear grasp of the concepts, they proceed to the second section, Accounting Applications. In this section, students practice the application of accounting procedures through “Apply It” features and a new transaction analysis model that clearly illustrates how transactions are a result of business decisions and recorded to reveal their effects on financial statements.

Finally, students use the third section, Business Applications, to see how concepts and procedures are employed in making business decisions. The chapter includes real-world and company examples to emphasize the relevance of the material to students. This logical progression of material is well-supported by the Tri-Level Problem in CengageNOW (sold separately), which links the three sections for a more complete understanding.

These substantial changes have been introduced to make learning more efficient for students and prepare them for a business world complicated by ethical issues and globalization.
