  • THIS EDITION AND THE LATEST QBOA EMPHASIZE A SINGLE ONGOING COMPANY CASE. Each licensed copy of QuickBooks® Online Accountant (QBOA) works with only one company, other than the sample company provided online. To work seamlessly with this approach, this edition also emphasizes one ongoing case for illustration and practice, rather than using multiple cases as in other QuickBooks® texts.

The resources available with this edition save you time in grading and enable you to easily track and report student outcomes. You can also ensure student comprehension with the complete solutions for each chapter's student case found in this edition's instructor’s manual.

  • SELF-PACED APPROACH MAKES THIS BOOK AN IDEAL ADDITION TO ANY ACCOUNTING COURSE. You can easily add this edition as a supplement to your accounting course.

Self-guided and self-paced instruction allows your students to progress logically through the book's real-life case examples and assignments.

  • CLEAR LEARNING OUTCOMES GUIDE BOTH STUDY AND INSTRUCTION IN EACH CHAPTER. Every chapter begins with a list of expected learning outcomes followed by step-by-step explanations of how readers can achieve those outcomes. In most chapters the explanations depict a sample company created by Intuit®. Using this company, the chapters clearly demonstrate how to capture and report various operating, investing and financing activities of a business in QuickBooks® Online Accountant (QBOA). End-of-chapter questions and a student case follow to reinforce these explanations.

  • SPECIALLY DESIGNED END-OF-CHAPTER QUESTIONS STRENGTHEN COMPREHENSION. Meaningful, yet challenging, questions at the end of each chapter help readers review key concepts and processes explained within the chapter. A matching section ensures that students understand the chapter's important terms and definitions.

  • INTERESTING STUDENT CASES PROVIDE QBOA HANDS-ON PRACTICE WORKING WITH KEY CONCEPTS. Each useful case provides important information and guides students through adding data to their company files. As students advance, the cases build upon information from previous chapters’ cases. To ensure comprehension, students must complete all previous cases before moving ahead.
