Reading AssignmentDuring the Basic Accounting (BUS 1102) and Financial Accounting courses we learned that the accounting profession is diverse as to purposes, goals, and tasks that accountants undertake. In this course, we will concentrate on the field of managerial accounting.Chapter 1, What is Managerial Accounting, will describe managerial accounting and will contrast it with other fields of accounting. The chapter will also review the basics of inventory accounting and the role of Cost of Goods Sold.In Chapter 2, How is Job Costing Used to Track Production Costs, we begin our learning journey through managerial accounting with a costing model called Job Order Costing. This will be one of a number of ways of how business leaders assign costs to specific business products or ventures.
