Accounting Principles, 12th Edition by Weygandt, Kimmel, and Kieso provides you with a clear introduction to fundamental accounting concepts. The twelfth edition helps you get the most out of your accounting course by making practice simple. Both in the print text and online in WileyPLUS with ORION, new opportunities for self-guided practice allow you to check your knowledge of accounting concepts, skills, and problem-solving techniques and receive personalized feedback at the question, learning objective, and course level.


  • Practice Made Simple: A new section offers students more opportunities for self-guided practice. The new Review and Practice section includes worked-out solutions to select questions, exercises, and problems.
  • Knowledge Organization: Newly streamlined learning objectives help you make the best use of time outside of class.  Each learning objective contains a variety of practice and assessment questions, relevant review material, and educational videos, so no matter where you start your work, the relevant resources or practice is quickly made available.
