Located next to every journal entry, they reinforce the connections between recording a transaction and the effect those transactions have on the accounting equation.

Located in the text’s margin next to where the answer or clarification can be found, they help students better understand difficult concepts.

· Personalized Learning. Not every student learns the same way or at the same rate.

Personalized learning in Pearson MyLab Accounting gives you the flexibility to incorporate the approach that best suits of your course and your students.

o The Study Plan acts as a tutor, providing personalized recommendations for each of your students based on his or her ability to master the learning objectives in your course. This allows students to focus their study time by pinpointing the precise areas they need to review, and allowing them to use customized practice and learning aids--such as videos, eText, tutorials, and more--to get them back on track. Using the report available in the Gradebook, you can then tailor course lectures to prioritize the content where students need the most support--offering you better insight into classroom and individual performance.

o Dynamic Study Modules help students study effectively on their own by continuously assessing their activity and performance in real time. Here's how it works: students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level.

These are available as graded assignments prior to class, and accessible on smartphones, tablets, and computers. NEW! Instructors can now remove questions from Dynamic Study Modules to better fit their course.
