In writing Financial Accounting, vol. 2.0, Joe Ben Hoyle, co-author of two
market-leading advanced accounting textbooks, joined with C.J. Skender to write a textbook that had simple yet clear aims:
This textbook is suitable for these courses: Financial Accounting (undergraduate or MBA-level)
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4 year institutions.
Financial Accounting sequentially covers standard topics but does so through carefully constructed questions along with their individual answers.
Each question and its answer look at a specific piece of material. The student only has to deal with one question and its answer at a time. Material is presented as a clearly established series of steps rather than as a long flowing monologue.
Experts agree that individuals learn better through give and take than through one-directional lectures. This textbook feels like a conversation.
When students are exposed to new topics, they often have trouble making leaps of understanding that appear easy to a teacher (or a textbook author). The question and answer format provides appropriate sequencing of material. Students are led through each topic in a logical, understandable fashion.
A question and answer format leads to critical thought, asking, “Why did this technique work?“ ”Why is the calculation performed this way?“ ”Who really cares about this?“
This text is simple in design, not cluttered with unnecessary boxes and icons.
