About The Book

As the second edition of Advanced Cost Accounting goes to the press, with happiness and humility I note that the first edition of this book has been received well by the academic community – both the Teaching Fraternity and the Student Community. This has necessitated to bring out the second edition.

And I am happy to place before the Readers the second and thoroughly revised edition of this book. The revised edition is characterized by a thorough revision and modification of all the chapters. Further, all the fifteen chapters of the pre-revised edition are revised thoroughly making the analysis more comprehensive and by adding more number of illustrations and exercises. I am confident that this revision, modification and addition sub-serve the Readers more effectively and continue to be useful.
