Details: Product Description Don't you love those moments in your course when students are fully engaged? When the Aha! revelations are bursting like fireworks? The Financial Accounting author team has developed a concise and well-organized learning framework to show students that accounting consists of three major processes: measuring, communicating, and decision-making. By consistently tying each lesson into this framework, instructors can significantly improve student engagement and outcomes. For the fifth edition, the authors have retained popular digital features such as General Ledger Problems, Excel Simulations, and algorithmic end-of-chapter questions, while also including new content based on skills today's students need. New features in the fifth edition include Applying Excel problems, enhancing decision maker's content by developing auto-graded cases, and expanding video content with new Concept Overview Videos. Building on the success of the first four editions of Financial Accounting, the fifth edition will motivate, engage, and challenge students. Paired with the market-leading power of the Connect platform, Spiceland-Thomas-Herrmann Financial Accounting will truly illuminate the financial accounting course for each student. About the Author Don Herrmann passed away on May 8, 2018, after a 14-month battle with brain cancer. He was the Deloitte Professor of Accounting at Oklahoma State University, where he had been on the faculty since 2005. Don won several teaching awards and enjoyed teaching financial accounting, intermediate accounting, and doctoral students. He received his bachelor’s degree in business from John Brown University, his master’s degree in accounting from Kansas State University, and his PhD in accounting from Oklahoma State University. He was active in the AAA and served as president of the International Accounting Section. Don was best known for his warm and welcoming personality. He enjoyed serving in his local community and church, as well as hosting families and students in his home. His outgoing nature wasn’t the type that filled a room with his presence, but it was the type that filled a one-on-one conversation with purpose. Above all else, family was first to Don. Some of his favorite family activities included camping, going to amusement parks, and coaching little league sports. He is survived by his wonderful wife Mary and four amazing children Rachel, David, Nathan, and Micah. As he battled through the different stages of cancer, he often reflected on his family. He was so proud of them and talked about them with a humble thankfulness. Those who knew Don were fortunate to share their lives with him. He lived with a sense of purpose and a solid foundation. That foundation continues through his family and the people he’s touched. He will be missed by many. David Spiceland is Accounting Professor Emeritus at the University of Memphis.
