  • Last year, Intuit®, developer of QBO, decided to allow students to create up to four companies. Prior to that the author had to use the Sample Company to demonstrate QBO features. This was problematic since the Sample Company data changed depending on the student’s computer system date and meant that the screen shots in the text were of different dates than the student’s screen.

  • In QBOA 7th Edition, the author has rewritten all chapter instructions to demonstrate QBO features. In doing so he used one of the four companies available to students, leaving three companies available for the instructor to assign cases. Each chapter has six cases available for homework or exams. In addition, the instructor can also assign comprehensive cases which add transactions to cases the student has already completed.

  • SAVE GRADING TIME WITH COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTIONS IN THE INSTRUCTOR'S MANUAL. The instructor resources 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 complete solutions in the instructor’s manual for each chapter's case.

  • 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. This edition's easy-to-follow instructions, examples and manageable assignments require little, if any, in-class instruction. 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 users can achieve those outcomes. In most chapters the explanations depict a sample company created by Intuit®. Using this company, each chapter clearly demonstrates 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 case study reinforce these explanations.

  • SPECIALLY DESIGNED END-OF-CHAPTER QUESTIONS STRENGTHEN COMPREHENSION. Meaningful and 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 case study provides important information and guides students through working with QuickBooks® Online Accountant (QBOA) to add 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.
