Applied Accounting - 9780190423919
Applied Accounting is tailored to meet the needs of students taking a first year course in Financial accounting as part of a Diploma in Accounting or a National Diploma (Accounting) both in terms of the curriculum covered and it terms of the approach toward teaching and learning. The book is suitable even for students who may not have taken Accounting at Grade 12 level as it bridges the gap between school and the first level of tertiary study. The book does this by referencing prior knowledge covered at school level and by scaffolding the level of conceptual engagement. Furthermore, students are exposed to every day financial objects or transactions such what a cheque is, or how internet banking works and understanding is supported through the use of photographs, source documents and links to video clips and audio clips as well as instructions on practical activities.
