Success in Corporate Accounting starts here
“A concern my students raise in relation to the current text we use is that it is highly technical and difficult to understand. Dagwell et al is easy to understand and it is balanced in the level of technical detail necessary for this type of course.”
Subhash Abhayawansa, Swinburne University
The first Pearson edition of Corporate Accounting in Australia provides comprehensive coverage of the latest company accounting principles, practices and issues in a very accessible manner, while delivering enhanced pedagogy and lecturer support. The aim is to ensure that students don’t feel daunted by the technical detail, but at the same time develop an understanding of the core principles that underpin contemporary professional practice. It has been written to help students succeed in what is traditionally a very demanding subject.
