Cost Accounting Introduction to Management Accounting


Basic Algebra


Welcome to the Management Accounting Crash Course, which will provide you with 46 video lessons that span over 7 hours of content (including quizzes to help test your knowledge). Follow along as I explain the basics and fundamental concepts like cost drivers, the cost function, break-even points, journal entries, joint costing, budgets and more! Managerial Accounting is the study of internal financial information that can influence decision-making. It’s the follow up course to Financial Accounting, that can prove to be more difficult for students. We designed the course to act as a perfect supplement for those taking Managerial/Management Accounting in University or College. We’ll walk you through the theory, providing examples and questions that will keep you engaged.The first part of the course will cover:Cost Measurement and Cost BehaviorThe Design of Cost FunctionsFixed Costs, Variable Costs and Mixed CostsBreak-Even AnalysisHandling Direct and Indirect CostsThe second part will cover:Process Costing, and Production Reports using Weighted Average and FIFO.Activity-Based Costing for Overhead CostsPreparing Cash BudgetsVariance AnalysisSupport Departments: Direct, Step-Down and Reciprocal MethodAnd much more!HERE’S WHAT SOME STUDENTS OF HAVE TOLD ME ABOUT MY COURSE:”I fully attribute me passing the BEC portion of the CPA exam from your videos. Without your easy to learn managerial accounting tutorials, I would never have understood the concepts. I especially thought your videos on variance analysis were exceptional. Thank you so much for everything!”  – Spencer S.”Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for posting such great videos on YouTube. I believe that they were the reason I just passed my very difficult accounting exam! They were very easy to watch and easy to follow. I appreciate your work!”  – Alana M.”This guy has the best Mgmt Accounting tutorial videos. He understands the concepts and can explain them in the easiest and most engaging way. Thank you.” – Karen K.”Great Course for being introduced to Fundamentals of Management Accounting. Dave does a good job at explaining concepts filled in with examples.” – Imran S.
