Book DescriptionThe approach used by Hoyle, Schaefer, and Doupnik in the new edition allows students to think critically about accounting, just as they will do while preparing for the CPA exam and in their future careers. With this text, students gain a well-balanced appreciation of the Accounting profession. As Hoyle 12e introduces them to the field's many aspects, it often focuses on past controversies and present resolutions. The text continues to show the development of financial reporting as a product of intense and considered debate that continues today and into the future.
The writing style of the eleven previous editions has been highly praised. Students easily comprehend chapter concepts because of the conversational tone used throughout the book. The authors have made every effort to ensure that the writing style remains engaging, lively, and consistent which has made this text the market leading text in the Advanced Accounting market. The 12th edition includes an increased integration of IFRS as well as updated accounting standards.
It's ok. Not really any changes between this edition and the previous one. The authors' discussion is high-level and average at best. They cover topics at a very high level, with no focus on problem solving. I'm not looking for many worked examples, as I'd expect to find in an Intro Acct text but they expect that the students are pretty much on their level after reading each chapter. End-of-chapter problems are all very tough and NO solutions given at the end of the book (for hard mathematically-based courses like this, check values are very helpful....otherwise how do you know if you're doing it correctly or not?) I've looked at their Test Bank questions and they're actually very good, and easier, than the ones at the end of the chapter - after all, you can't expect somebody to generate a consolidation worksheet on an exam, it would take too long. Too bad they don't provide more of those multiple choice problems in a supplemental study guide or on the McGraw Hill Connect website for students.
