Welcome to Cost Accounting, 10e: Foundations & Evolutions !

The tenth edition of Cost Accounting: Foundations & Evolutions, covers the fundamental cost accounting procedures and calculations as well as the strategic cost management concepts needed for planning and decision making. A text is most valuable when the subject matter is applicable to students’ businesses or personal lives. Cost Accounting: Foundations & Evolutions engages students by highlighting the real-world relevance of each topic and encouraging students to expand their capabilities beyond computing answers and to thinking critically about business issues.

Author Amie Dragoo discusses the text's features below:

We steer away from dense text and introduce an Active Learning Approach where content is delivered in short bursts supported by online demonstration videos and followed by immediate practice. Our organizing feature called the Road Map begins each chapter and organizes the chapter content and resources and facilitates active learning.

You’ll see this roadmap in every chapter and currently, we have over 250 videos to support this text!

Each chapter ends with a comprehensive Demonstration Problem that allows students to see multiple learning objectives being applied to a single problem. We provide detailed solutions along with author created videos that solve each demonstration problem in a step-by-step manner.  

We end each chapter with a Comprehensive Chapter Review. This review includes a list of key terms from the chapter and a bullet point summary of the chapter’s content. We also include a Solutions Strategy Section which highlights key formulas or schedules as well as typical steps that are performed in a process. This section is organized by learning objective and is a nice tool for students as they attempt homework on their own.

The final chapter of this text covers Emerging Management Practices. Companies such as Amazon and Apple have contributed to an explosion of ecommerce while Cloud computing has shifted the way technology companies such as Microsoft and Adobe earn revenues by converting their revenue streams to subscription-based services. Further, the emergence of Data Analytics, Machine Learning, and Blockchain has altered the role of accountants in most organizations.

Instructor Perspective

Mary Beth Goodrich from University of Texas at Dallas discusses how Cost Accounting, 10e, by Kinney, Raiborn, and Dragoo helps her students learn.

Retained and Updated Features

The tenth edition of Cost Accounting: Foundations & Evolutions provides in-depth coverage of current cost management concepts and procedures in a straightforward and reader-friendly framework. The clean, concise presentation of materials and the updated illustrations reinforce and clarify the topics that readers traditionally struggle with most. The following features have been retained and updated in this edition.

Real examples and ethical considerations:  As with previous editions, real examples and ethical coverage are woven into the text so readers immediately see the relevance of the cost accountant's role in managerial decisions and learn to go beyond the numbers to think critically.

High-quality end-of-chapter assignments:  Students practice accounting skills with a wide array of assignment types, including Internet research exercises, group activities, writing assignments, ethical problems, and Excel® template activities. Questions test basic chapter comprehension, exercises offer quick concept checks, and problems delve deeper into the concepts, testing students' application of critical topics and procedures.

Streamlined, student-friendly approach:  Recognized for its unmatched readability, the book's thought-provoking writing keeps concepts intriguing and easy to comprehend. This edition's solid blend of concepts and practices will help students clearly understand how to solve actual business problems.

Relevancy in today's business world:  Updated illustrations and real-world examples appeal to today's students and clearly exemplify the chapters' concepts. These examples are integrated throughout the main body of the text in order to connect today's business world with the classroom experience immediately.

Developing ethical business leaders:  The need for students to analyze business situations and make informed, ethical decisions is essential in today's business world. Cost Accounting: Foundations & Evolutions weaves ethical considerations throughout the chapter so that students learn to think consistently of the ethical implications of their actions. Potential Ethical Issues at the end of the chapter emphasize dilemmas students may encounter in business, and exercises and problems involving ethical considerations are marked with an ethics icon.

Comprehensive Chapter Review:  Comprehensive Chapter Reviews conclude each chapter to ensure your students' mastery of concepts through a list of key chapter terms, succinct chapter summaries, potential ethical issues, solution strategies highlighting key equations and concepts, and demonstration problems that students can use as a framework for solving similar examples in homework assignments or exams. These comprehensive reviews reinforce the critical concepts from the chapter and show how to apply them. For example, refer to pages 9-21 through 9-23.

Solutions Strategies:  Each chapter includes a section with an overview of key strategies for the more complex learning objectives. The strategies reinforce the content of the LO through a key formula, schedule, or an outline of steps. These are just another tool beyond the reviews and videos to assist students in working through the assignments.

New to the 10th Edition

New Co-Author:  Amie Dragoo joins us on the tenth edition. Amie brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and has dramatically improved the online assets featured in myBusinessCourse (MBC), our online learning and homework system. Amie developed eLecture, Demonstration, and Guided Example videos that accompany the auto-graded homework in MBC.

Active Learning:  As mentioned above, in the tenth edition we move towards a more active- learning approach where content is delivered in shorter bursts supported by online demonstration videos and followed by immediate practice through in-chapter review problems. Pedagogically, we have revised each chapters objectives to provide students with a demonstration video and review problem for each deliberately selected, key learning objective. In this way, students see the application of concepts through a step-by-step illustration and then have the opportunity to immediately practice similar review problems. This concept overview-illustration-practice approach keeps students engaged and ensures they have mastered one learning objective before proceeding to the next.

Road Maps:  To establish the active-learning approach of the product and highlight its user friendly organization, each chapter opens with a Road Map that identifies each learning objective for the chapter, the related page numbers, the demonstration videos, the review problems (Guided Examples), and the corresponding assignments. This table allows students and faculty to quickly grasp at a glance the chapter contents and to efficiently navigate to the desired topic. The Road Maps also make it easier for students to work backwards from assignment to illustrative video and example in the text.

Demonstration Videos: Created by the authors, the demonstration videos provide the foundation for students to complete the review problems that follow. The videos provide illustrative examples that are solved in a step-by-step manner.

In-Chapter Review Problems:  The emphasis in our approach is to provide students with a demonstration video and review problem for each deliberately selected, key learning objective. In this way, students see the application of concepts through a step-by-step illustration and then have the opportunity to immediately practice similar review problems. At the conclusion of each learning objective, a review problem is provided with answers included at the end of the chapter. These review problems are presented to reinforce concepts presented in the section and ensure student comprehension. By not providing the review solutions on the same page as the review, we are encouraging students to “learn by doing.” In addition, each review problem is accompanied by a short video clip (typically 3 minutes or less) that walks students through the solution to the review.

Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, and Blockchain technology:  Chapter 19 on emerging management practices now includes discussions on data analytics, artificial intelligence, and blockchain. The authors provide a broad introduction to the topics and then describe innovations in a cost accounting context.
