A Textbook of Cost and Management Accounting By M.N. ARORA
Book Summary:

Cost Accountancy has the reputation of being hard to learn and hard to teach. It is so probably because it is a highly specialised subject requiring an indepth understanding of its complex concepts and techniques.

This book is an attempt to alleviate this problem by providing the students with thorough grounding in cost concepts, cost behaviour, costing methods and techniques and with an understanding of the uses and limitations of cost data for planning and control and special decisionmaking.

This book gives students a thorough grounding in cost concepts, cost behaviour, and costing methods. The subject matter has been presented in a student-friendly, systematic and intelligible manner. Every discussion involving conceptual difficulties is immediately followed by a numerical example.

A large number of charts and diagrams bring to light finer points of the subject and make it easily comprehensible. The subject matter has been organized on ‘first things first’ basis to sustain the interest of the students. Additional problems and solutions have been included in the Appendix to help students.
