DePaul University Service & Training Site
Course Materials: Text and Technology

The required course materials for the ACC 101/102 courses are the Needles/Powers/Crosson, Financial and Managerial Accounting, 10th Edition text, and the CengageNOW digital homework system. Students can purchase these materials in a bundle only through the DePaul University Barnes & Noble Bookstore. This bundle has been priced exclusively for the DePaul ACC 101/102 courses to provide students the BEST value in all required materials.  If a student elects to purchase the book elsewhere and CengageNOW separately they will not get the best price.


  • Custom edition of Needles/Powers/Crosson, Financial and Managerial Accounting, 10th Edition with 2 semester CengageNOW code
  • Custom Bundle ISBN: 9781285908304 ($125 net *there is an additional bookstore mark-up to the net cost that is determined by your bookstore.)

A Cengage Microsite was created for Direct to Student purchasing as well.  The URL is to come.

*Access to the CengageNOW program provides not only access to the digital homework, but also to the electronic version of the text (ebook). Therefore, students can elect to purchase ONLY access to CengageNOW IF they do not mind reading their book electronically (online).

The CengageNOW program access is good for 365 days from date of registration of their Access Code, so students need only purchase the access once to cover both their ACC 101 and 102 courses, provided they take both quarters within the 365-day allotment.

Note: the Nook version of the Needles text that is offered at the Barnes & Noble bookstore on campus does not include access to the CengageNOW program. Also, the Nook device will not run the CengageNOW program.
