Basic Accounting Concepts, Principles, and Procedures is designed to satisfy both of these requirements, and has received high grades from students in both classroom and online environments. Additionally, the text has received praise from reviewers in highly-respected academic journals as well as winning various academic and trade awards. Please contact us with any questions that you might have; we will be glad to answer your questions and will work with you individually to help you and your students progress towards success and achieve all your goals.
