Accounting for Non-Accounting Students, 10th Edition, by Dyson & Franklin provides real-life understanding of accounting by introducing the purpose and key ideas of financial and management accounting to students who have had little or no previous knowledge of the subject. This text is renowned for its clear and non-technical explanations of essential accounting techniques, in a language accessible to all. It engages with students to help them cross the bridge between classroom learning and real life, in order to improve their employment prospects when applying for jobs. The new inclusion of critical thinking questions related to most recent news stories, along with contemporary examples and business articles, allows students to explore, in classroom discussions, themes that go beyond accounting techniques, and which require them to think and develop a personal opinion.
