Free with every new book, this CD is comprised of 2 distinct programs that help students better understand the more challenging aspects of Financial Accounting: 1)Topic Tackler: This complete tutorial provides students with help on two key topics for every chapter. Included for each concept are video clips, PowerPoint slide shows, interactive exercises, self-test quizzing, and hot links to the Internet. 2)Mastering the Accounting Cycle (M.A.C.) helps students through what is often a very difficult part of the course – the details of the double-entry accounting system. Three components make up the program: 1) Approximately 30 additional exercises per chapter, 2) Immediate feedback to the student based on the answers submitted, and 3) A Performance Report provided to the student after each lesson is completed listing the student’s grade, completion time, and a list of the topic areas that the student needs to review. The Performance Report can also be printed and given to the instructor to help identify areas that need more classroom coverage.
