Increasingly, accounting research and communication skills are being regarded as fundamental
to success in our profession. Professionals who excel in these areas will likely experience a distinct
competitive advantage relative to their peers. At the same time, in today’s highly regulated
business climate, the consequences of inadequately researching and documenting accounting
judgments can be severe (e.g., PCAOB or SEC enforcement actions). Recognizing the importance
of research skills, research simulations are now a key component of the national CPA
exam. This hands-on textbook aims to teach students these important skills.
In this book, students will learn to confidently address and communicate accounting
research issues, from start to finish. Students will not only take away the ability to identify
the accounting problem (the “researchable question”), but will gain experience locating and
applying guidance within key research tools (including the FASB Codification and eIFRS), in
a variety of accounting environments. In learning to use these research tools, students will have
the opportunity to apply guidance to a variety of actual accounting topics.
Recognizing that students cannot learn to research simply by reading about research, the
textbook offers students numerous opportunities to actively apply chapter lessons, throughout
each chapter. Students will come away from this book armed with the research and critical thinking
skills necessary for success as accounting professionals.
