Authors: Richard H. Gesseck and Lawrence Gramling

Helps accountants solve many complex accounting and disclosure problems. Superior technical analysis and practical explanations of accounting principles are provided in this insightful volume. The Guide uses a helpful three-step approach for each topic covered. First, flowcharts illustrate the decision process and accounting procedures. Then, general discussion of the major provisions provides a context for understanding; and, finally, detailed examples show the specific computations and accounting requirements.
