The new Multi-Panel View enables students to see all the elements of a problem on one screen, making it easier for them to navigate the problem and understand the accounting system. The new Adaptive Feedback responds to students based upon their unique answers and alerts them to the type of error they have made, keeping students checked-in and progressing. The new Blank Sheet of Paper Experience provides a less leading response system for journal entries and financial statements that discourages over-reliance on the system.
  • Dynamic Exhibits in CengageNOWv2: NEW Dynamic Exhibits allow students to change the variables in a scenario and see how a change ripples through the accounting system. Dynamic Exhibits allow students to see connections and relationships like never before! Identified by an icon in the text, Dynamic Exhibits are embedded within the MindTap eReader in CengageNOWv2. They are assignable/gradable in CengageNOWv2 and available for self-study and review.

  • Math Review Module, designed to help students get up to speed with necessary math skills, includes math review assignments and Show Me How math demonstration videos to ensure that students have an understanding of basic math skills, including: whole number operations, decimal operations and rounding, percentage operations and conversion, fraction operations, converting numbers expressed in one form to a different form, positive and negative numbers, and ratios and averages.
  • How to Use CengageNOWv2 Module allows students to focus on learning accounting, not on a particular software system. Quickly familiarize your students with CengageNOWv2 and direct them to all of its built-in student resources.
  • Adaptive Study Plan in CengageNOWv2: The NEW Adaptive Study Plan is an assignable/gradable study center that adapts to each student's unique needs and provides a remediation pathway to keep students progressing. Students first take a chapter-level quiz consisting of randomized questions that cover both conceptual and procedural aspects of the chapter. Next, feedback is provided for each answer option explaining why the answer is right or wrong. Based on the quiz results, students are provided a remediation path that includes media assets and algorithmic practice problems to help them improve their understanding of the course material.
