Management Accounting


April 2006 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The SAGE Course Companion on Management Accounting is an accessible introduction to the subject that will help readers extend their understanding of key concepts and enhance their thinking skills in line with course requirements. It provides support on how to revise for exams, how to present calculations, and how to prepare for and write assessed pieces. Readers are encouraged not only to think like a management accountant but also to think about the subject critically.

Designed to compliment existing textbooks for the course, the companion provides:
  • Easy access to the key themes in Management Accounting and an overview of its business context
  • Helpful summaries of the approach taken by the main textbooks on the course
  • Guidance on the essential study skills required to pass the course
  • Sample exam questions and answers, with common pitfalls to avoid
  • A tutor's-eye view of what course examiners are looking for
  • A road map for the book to help readers quickly find the information they need


The SAGE Course Companion on Management Accounting is much more than a revision guide for undergraduates; it is an essential tool that will help readers take their course understanding to new levels and achieve success in their undergraduate course.

A condensed but very interesting manual with useful examples based on the most important Management Accounting books. One of the most interesting and innovative topics of this manual was Part Three: Study, Writing and Revision Skills. I found there very helpful tips for students to improve and develop their knowledge.

Interesting especially for my German students to distinguish Management Accounting from German "Controlling".

Prescribed as a tool to manage issues in management accounting next to the key text book. Focuses on students without prior knowledge in the field of accounting.
