This book has been a favourite with students and teachers alike ever since it was published in 1996. It makes a comprehensive and critical exposition of all facets of teaching commerce. It essentially offers a learner-oriented text, whereas the approach is strictly utilitarian. Thus, it serves as a reliable guide in the classroom, and provides practical suggestions for making the teaching-learning process effective and inspirational. To make the subject interesting the text has been suitably supplemented with diagrams, figures and tables.
By virtue of its extensive and in-depth coverage of the subject the book has been useful to students preparing for teacher training courses, not only in India but also in the Middle-East and South-East Asian countries. It has also served as a reliable handbook for in-service teachers.
Revision of the book became necessary following changes in the syllabus in accordance with the National Curriculum Framework 2005. Thus, chapters on Suggestive Lesson Plans in Accountancy, Pedagogic Analysis of the Subject, and Multiple-Choice Questions have been included for the second edition.
