Summary and Info
Some cost accounting books overwhelm you with dozens of complex topics. Not Cost Accounting For Dummies. Here, I focus on the really important topics that are used the most often. Accounting knowledge is meaningful when you can use it to solve a problem. As a friend of mine once said, It’s hard to drink out of a fire hose, so I present the material in this book in an easy-to-read reference format. The book is logically divided into parts. Each part contains several chapters that are divided into readable chunks or sections. This system avoids blasting you with information. Instead, topics are introduced at a steady (but not overwhelming) rate, with concepts building on one another, making the reading (and understanding) easier. The great thing about the book is that you decide where to start and what to read. It’s a reference book. You can locate a topic in the table of contents or the index, read about it, and move on. Accountants love organization (most accountants place their pencils in order from shortest to longest). This book is organized to be a quick reference. |
