It identifies the three functions managers must perform within their organizations - plan operations, control activities, and make decisions - and explains what accounting information is necessary for these functions, how to collect it, and how to interpret it. To achieve this, "Managerial Accounting, 12/E", focuses, now as in the past, on three qualities: Relevance. Every effort is made to help students relate the concepts in this book to the decisions made by working managers. With insightful chapter openers, the popular "Managerial Accounting in Action" segments within the chapters, and stimulating end-of-chapter exercises, a student reading. Garrison should never have to ask "Why am I learning this?"Balance - there's more than one type of business, and so Garrison covers a variety of business models, including not-for-profit, retail, service, and wholesale organizations as well as manufacturing. In the eleventh edition, service company examples are highlighted with icons in the margins of the text. Clarity -generations of students have praised Garrison for the friendliness and readability of its writing, but that's just the beginning. Technical discussions have been simplified, material has been reordered, and the entire book carefully retuned to make teaching-and learning-from Garrison as easy as it can be. In addition, the supplements package is written by Garrison, Noreen, and Brewer, ensuring that students and professors will work with clear, well-written supplements that employ consistent terminology.Read Less

Good for the most part, Chapter 8 left something to be desired I think it could've explained better. Also on page 382, case 8-29 my textbook had in the problem a borrowing limit up to 150,000, but most of my class mates with the exact same book (this one) had it say 40,000. Created issues for them doing the assignment, be aware!

I am using this book for BUS 107, Managerial Accounting, at Gloucester County College in NJ. Book is helpful as it is well written and helps support the lessons taught in class. Examples of how to do problems are shown in book, which are very helpful on tests. Breaks down problems step by step which make it helpful to understand material.

Save $$ exact same book as US hardcover!
Ordered this for my son, was apprehensive because it is the international version---I guess they feel US students have money to burn! Sorry-his books are SO expensive we have to find any way to cut costs! He said this book was word for word, page # for page # identical to the US edition the other students are using..
