Running case study: Smart Touch Learning is used throughout the text to emphasise the role of financial decision making in the business context.
Accurate and up to date: The most up-to-date information in line with the latest developments in Australian and New Zealand accounting standards is used and referenced throughout the text.
Decision guidelines: Decision guidelines explain why the accounting concepts addressed in the chapter are important to making decisions in a business setting. The left-hand side of the Decision guidelines table explains in simple terms the decision or action asked of the student, while the right-hand side shows the accounting topics that will help facilitate those decisions.
Keep it consistent: Consistent examples rather than learn about a new company each time an example is presented; this text provides two sets of company data (for Smart Touch and Greg’s Tunes) that are carried through the in-chapter examples. As a result, you gain a sense of familiarity with the context of these examples and can focus your energy on learning the accounting principles in question
