Fundamentals of Cost Accounting https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1259969479.jpeg 6 9781259969478 Developing Skills for the Classroom and Beyond: Fundamentals of Cost Accounting is a cost accounting text that lets the student see the development of cost accounting tools and techniques as a natural response to decision making. By learning this intuition, students will have an easier time understanding new developments that arise during their careers. Procedural Approach: The material in the text is presented from the perspective of both the preparer of information as well as those who will use the information. This allows both accounting majors and those students planning other careers will appreciate the issues in preparing and using the information. Updated Discussions: The sixth edition has been updated to include new discussion on the links between activity-based cost management and lean manufacturing and lean accounting, as well as new discussion on strategy and performance.
