Intermediate Accounting tends to be a difficult subject for students to grasp. There are a number of reasons for this. However, based on my 30+ years of teaching accounting at the university level, I would say that a primary reason is that the student is deficient in the fundamentals. Another reason is that they approach the subject in a mechanical way without really understanding the significance of what they are doing.
Regardless of the reason, Intermediate Accounting forms the foundation for much of the accounting curriculum that the successful student must master. As such, I hope to provide an alternative aid to students as they make their way through Intermediate Accounting.
The information presented is based on Intermediate Accounting, 8th edition by Spiceland, Sepe and Nelson. The “lecture” type material really pertains to the subject matter and is not textbook specific. The exercise and problem material, however, is textbook specific.
Each of the chapters presented contains the following:
- Narrated PowerPoint lecture of the subject matter found in the chapter that can be viewed on a computer or on an iPad/iPhone;
- PDF handout of the PowerPoint lecture;
- Narrated PowerPoint solutions to select exercises and problems that can be viewed on a computer or on an iPad/iPhone.
- PDF handout of the PowerPoint solutions;
I hope that you find the information useful, and that you will provide me with feedback so that I can modify the information to be even more useful.
