CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Financial Accounting for Non Specialists is aimed at non-specialist students
of accounting and finance on a first course in the subject. It gives a lively
and wide-ranging survey of the basic principles of finance and financial
accounting. The unique approach taken in the first Section of the book is to
look at small to medium sized business organisations and their role in the
economy - how they are set up, factors in their success and failure and how
they source funds for expansion. This leads to discussion of the role of
financial markets and their need for financial information. Section 2 then
gives an account of financial accounting principles. The text is clearly
written and technical jargon is minimal - any technical terms are clearly
explained and a glossary of terms is provided. The book does not present the
hurdle of double-entry bookkeeping at an early stage - students can progress
through the book without double-entry. Illustrative case studies and reference
to real-life business examples are used to bring the technical information to
life. Financial Accounting for Non-specialists includes a large number of
worked examples, to give students valuable practice in using their new skills.
Other pedagogic elements include aims and learning outcomes, summaries, Case
Studies with questions and solutions, individual learning activities, self-test
questions with answers provided in the book, and exercises - the answers to
which are divided between the book and the Lecturer's Guide/Website.
