Cost and management accounting workbook offers students valuable practice opportunities around specific topics. It has been developed with the aim of assisting students who have trouble in grasping cost accounting techniques.

Cost and management accounting workbook does not supplement any specific textbook, but rather covers the topics that students will be required to understand and master in order to complete their cost and management accounting modules successfully within the minimum required period. It provides the opportunity to practice further, with questions graded as basic, intermediate and advanced in an effort to cater for all students at various levels.

The contributors to this book are experienced lecturers who have drawn on their experience to construct targeted questions based on the areas with which the majority of their students experience issues.
