Manual Accounting Practice Sets, Edition 3

An accounting practice set is the best way for students to learn the practical skills essential to accounting, through the completion of a one month accounting cycle for a fictional business.

But... when we talk to academics, you tell us that practice sets:

  • are too expensive for students to purchase
  • allow students to easily cheat when used for course assessment
  • are too time consuming to grade and provide feedback on.

We have listened to your feedback and suggestions to create a range of practice sets that solve these issues and establish a new standard for other publishers.

What are we doing differently to other publishers?

  • FREE practice sets: Our free practice sets have no restrictions or fine print and are genuinely available for all undergraduate college and university courses in the United States. Other publishers' practice sets can cost up to $50 per student, so adopting a Perdisco practice set can save a course literally thousands of dollars.
  • Realtime feedback for students: Our online VirtualTutor practice sets provide ongoing feedback to students and assist them to get back-on-track by helping to locate and correct errors. Students tell us that this is like having a personal tutor available 24/7 to help them whenever they need it.
  • Automatic grading for instructors: Our online VirtualTutor practice sets are graded automatically, saving instructors from having to spend the time of doing this themselves. However, if instructors prefer to grade each practice set personally, they can still adopt a practice set that gives them this option.
  • Preventing students from cheating: Our exclusive AntiCheat functionality distributes unique transactions, contexts and numeric values to each individual student to ensure students cannot copy each others' work.

Instructors: Review copy and interactive demonstration

No other practice set is able to offer instructors and their students the same features we do. If you are an instructor, please contact us now to find out more or to order a review copy and receive access to an interactive demonstration.

Instructors: Do you teach Sage 50?

If your accounting course teaches students how to use the Sage 50 accounting software package instead of manual accounting, please check our Sage 50 practice sets for more information.
