Book Description

November 10, 2008 0471467855 978-0471467854 1
Most managerial accounting texts emphasize the mechanics of managerial accounting. While important, mechanics are not enough. To solve business problems, students need to understand how managerial accounting can improve decision-making, and when and where a particular tool or technique is appropriate.

Balakrishnan’s Managerial Accounting 1st edition presents accounting information in the context of business decision making. It combines the traditional topics of managerial accounting with a strategic framework that shows students how to construct decision models and measure information. By linking business decisions with accounting information students will be motivated to learn and make more informed decisions. Balakrishnan will appeal to courses where there is a true focus on decision making and accounting is placed within a business context.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very good book March 17, 2012
By Candor
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The best way for me to learn a subject is to read the book on top of what we discussed in class. I read almost all chapters in the book and I really enjoyed the style the authors used. Every chapter starts with a real dilemma and a solution is worked through the chapter, clearly explaining the subject of the chapters.

I think the authors did a very good job of explaining easily some challenging topics. I specifically enjoyed the end of the chapter problems, which helped me a lot to develop some hands-on skills.
This book is for beginners, but it covers some advanced topics, as well. I really appreciate that my professor chose this book for his class.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst book of my MBA program. February 6, 2011
By Keith
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book makes easy concepts difficult to understand. Most of my learning for my Managerial Accounting course was achieved by studying other books. I am surprised that there a any positive reviews on this site. They must be from the family members of the author. My class opinion was universal, this is a very poorly written book. If you are a professor looking to select a book for your class, please do your students a favor and do not select this one.

All book highlighted by different bright colors~~ different from the description. Stopped to use it halfway of the semester, because I cannot distinguish my notes from the numerous former ones!

No missed pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haven't read the book at all! October 29, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book came in great condition but I dropped the course before it started. So, I have not read the book. But, I do plan to take the course again next semester, and if the textbook has changed, then I just have to come up with the money to buy the new book.
