###### PLAY
The equivalent unit concept refers to the actual amount of work during the period stated in terms of the work required to complete an equal number of whole units.
T
The number of units in the beginning WIP Inventory plus the units transferred out during the period equals the number of units started during the period plus the number of units in the ending WIP Inventory.
F
If materials are only added at the beginning of the production process, then the degree of completion for the materials in the ending WIP is always 100%
T
In the Weighted-average approach, the number of physical units transferred out cannot be greater than the equivalent number of units produced during the period.
T
FIFO process costing transfers out the costs in the beginning inventory before transferring out the costs associated with units started and completed.
T
If the beginning WIP inventory is zero, FIFO and weighted-average process costing will assign the same amount to the units transferred out.
T
The degree of completion associated with prior department costs is always 100%.

B
If the units in the beginning WIP inventory are greater that the units in the ending WIP inventory, then the units transferred out are:
A. more than the units started during the period
B. equal to the EU of production

B. Started during the period and units transferred out during the period.
C. Completed from the BI, started and completed during the month, and units in EI
D. processed during the period and units completed during the period.
C
Which of the following statements is (are) true?
I. for cost control, the FIFO method of process costing is better then the weighted-average method.
II. The weighted-average method of process costing assigns more cost to units completed (TO) than FIFO.
A. I only
B II only
C Both i and II
D none
A
Operations costing systems are used when the products have:

D
POHR can be used in all of the following systems except:
A. job costing
B. process costing
C. operations costing
D actual costing
D
9- Applied MOH for product costing purposes may lead to inappropriate managerial decisions because s single cost driver is used as the allocation base.
T
ABC is a second-stage allocation system that (I) allocates cost activities and (2) then products based on their activities
T
The best cost drivers are activities that are causally related to the costs being allocated.
T
The first-stage allocations in ABC allocates costs to departments using appropriate cost drivers.
F
ABC provides more detailed measures of costs than do plant wide or departments allocations methods.
T
ABC can be applied to administrative activities (eg purchasing) but not to marketing activities.
F
Which of the following statements is (are) true regarding the potential effects of using reported product costs for decisions making?
A. Traditional product costing (eg job and process costing) are designed primarily to accumulate cost information for financial reporting
B. Applied MOH for product costing purposes may lead to inappropriate managerial decisions because a single cost driver is used as the allocation base.
a. only A
b. only B
c. both A and B
d. none
C
ABC is a costing technique that uses a two stage allocation process. Which of the following statements best describes these two stages?
A. The costs are assigned to activities, and then to the products based upon their use of the activities
B. The costs are assigned to departments, and then to the products based upon their use fo activity resources.
C. Service department costs are allocated to the production departments, and then to the products based upon their use of the activities.
D. Indirect costs are assigned to activities, and then to the products based upon the direct cost resources used by the activities.
A
Which of the following statements are true?
A. One of the lessons learned from ABC is that all costs are really a function of volume.
B. The primary purpose of the plant wide and department allocations methods is allocating direct costs to specific products.
C. A problem with ABC is that it requires more record keeping than other methods.
D. Service department allocations are required for the plant wide and department allocations methods.

E. AOTA
E
Which one of the following accounts is not used in an ABC system?
