The estimated amount of time this product will be on the market is based on a number of factors, including faculty input to
instructional design and the prior revision cycle and updates to academic research-which typically results in a revision
cycle ranging from every two to four years for this product.
New Chapter Summaries:
All of the chapter summaries have been completely rewritten, and they are now structured on the learning objectives for each chapter. In each new chapter summary, each of the chapter’s learning objectives are repeated. Then each learning objective is followed by appropriate summary content.
Revised and Updated Pedagogy:
Many chapters include revisions of pedagogy, condensing and streamlining of explanations and addition of more current examples and references from the popular business press (e.g., The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg BusinessWeek).
Revised End-of-Chapter Assignment Material:
The end-of-chapter assignment material has been very heavily revised. Virtually all of the quantitative exercises, problems, and cases contain data different from that in the eighth edition.
Revised Build a Spreadsheet:
This popular feature has been completely revised for the ninth edition. Several exercises and problems in each chapter include an optional requirement to build an Excel spreadsheet to solve the problem.
Enhanced Service Industry Examples:
As the service industry occupies an ever-greater role in the economy, even greater emphasis has been placed on providing examples throughout the text of real-world service-industry firms using managerial accounting information.
Updated Contrast Companies:
Contrast companies appear in every chapter and continue to provide major service-industry examples.
Management Accounting Practice:
Several of these real-world examples have been revised and updated to make them more current, and several new examples have been added.
Supplementary Chapters Process:
Supplementary chapters on special topics are more accessible than ever. These supplements are located on the Online Learning Center at www.mhhe.com/hilton9e and include:
FIFO Method of Process Costing
Process Costing in Sequential Production Departments: Weighted-Average Method
Statement of Cash Flows
Analyzing Financial Statements
The Solutions Manual for each supplement can be found on the password-protected Instructor’s Online Learning Center.
Focus on Ethics segments, which pose ethical dilemmas or discuss ethical issues and then ask the student for his or her opinion about the issue.
Coverage of environmental cost management - a hot, new topic in the field.
Managerial Accounting Practice pedagogical boxes that expose students to real world experiences of managerial accounting in action.
Management Accountants: In Their Own Words: This feature incorporates actual quotes from practicing managerial accountants. This serves as a friendly, informal teaching device designed to show students how the field is changing and highlight the accountant’s role in companies’ cross-functional management teams.
Focus Companies: One of the hallmark features of Hilton’s “Managerial Accounting” is its pioneering of the focus company approach. By using focus companies to illustrate concepts, students immediately see the importance of the material and become excited about the content. Each chapter is written around a realistic business that introduces the reader to the topics of that chapter.
Each chapter is written as a self-contained unit to allow instructors maximum flexibility in topic sequencing.
Current Topics: The 9th edition continues to contain very contemporary topical coverage. There is an even presentation of contemporary topics (activity-based costing and activity-based management: Target Costing, Kaizen Costing, the Value Chain, etc) and traditional topics (job-order costing, cost estimation, cost-volume-profit analysis, budgeting, etc).
The balanced presentations of Service, Retail, Nonprofit, and Manufacturing examples have been retained. A complete list of the focus companies can be found on the endsheets of the textbook.
