Business Accounting and Finance for Non Specialists is aimed at non-specialist students of accounting and finance on a first course in the subject. It gives a lively and wide-ranging survey of the basic principles of finance, financial accounting and management accounting. The unique approach taken in the first Section of the book is to look at small to medium sized business organisations and their role in the economy ? how they are set up, factors in their success and failure and how they source funds for expansion. This leads to discussion of the role of financial markets and their need for financial information. Sections 2 and 3 then give an account of financial and management accounting principles, respectively. The text is clearly written and technical jargon is minimal - any technical terms are clearly explained and a glossary of terms is provided. The book does not present the hurdle of double-entry bookkeeping at an early stage ? students can progress through the book without double-entry. Illustrative case studies and reference to real-life business examples are used to bring the technical information to life. Business Accounting and Finance for Non-specialists includes a large number of worked examples, to give students valuable practice in using their new skills. Other pedagogic elements include aims and learning outcomes, summaries, Case Studies with questions and solutions, individual learning activities, self-test questions with answers provided in the book, and exercises - the answers to which are divided between the book and the Lecturer?s Guide/Website.

The growth in the provision of education through open-learning, coupled with increased pressures on teaching resources, has led to a greater emphasis on student-centred learning. Concurrently, the spread of modularisation is giving students a broader choice of subjects to study beyond their major discipline, including elements of accounting and finance. Conceived in response to this shift in approach and the growth of non-specialist classes, this text provides a broad-based introduction to the main concepts of financial management and their practical application in decision-making. Effective teaching and learning are facilitated through a variety of distinctive features; these are designed to encourage interaction and allow for flexible study and assessment. The clarity of explanations, minimisation of mathematical formulae, and the frequent use of worked examples and practical illustrations further distinguish the text for undergraduate students on non-finance/accounting degree or diploma courses taking an introductory module, and for postgraduate/experience courses such as the ACCA Certified Diploma.
