Great AIS book, April 5, 2012

This review is from: Accounting Information Systems (12th Edition) (Hardcover)


This is really a great textbook. It is almost entertaining to read because they use the same examples for several chapters at a time. Really outlines AIS. The self quizzes at the end of the chapters are really helpful and the problems are useful and not tedious.

Needs Updating in Acctg Processes, December 2, 2012


By 
Joyce (Duluth, GA United States) - See all my reviews



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: Accounting Information Systems (12th Edition) (Hardcover)


For a book on Information Systems, I would have expected the examples on accounting functions to be more up-to-date with current business practices rather than the archaic processes that were included.
Unfortunately, my instructor taught "by the book" and I was forced to relearn all the old ways of doing things such as forgoing using a lockbox for receiving cash and having two people in the mail room open the checks and manually write a deposit slip. Who has time for that?
Have the authors of this book not heard of process improvement, automation, Six Sigma? Trust me, the companies out there certainly have and that's what employees' success is judged against.
Teaching college students who have never worked in an Accounting Dept a process that hasn't been used in years is doing them a disservice. The Universities should expect current version textbooks to actually be updated with current business practices and then teach current business practices. Challenge themselves to actually produce graduates who won't feel behind the curve when they're out looking for a job up against those who have work experience. Put them ahead of the curve by teaching them Best Practice for their field. What a concept. It starts with truly up-to-date textbooks.

Boring, December 10, 2011

This review is from: Accounting Information Systems (12th Edition) (Hardcover)


This is by far the most boring textbook I have ever read, and I've read plenty. Also, the professor pointed out several incorrect examples within the text. Overpriced as most textbooks tend to be.

Absolutely Horrible!, August 29, 2009






This textbook is HORRIBLE! I usually frown on using such harsh language for reviews, but this truly deserves it. Some people, and I trust that these people are indeed RARE individuals, may find the new examples helpful but they are not. This textbook fails in the area most critical to success, in that it does NOT succeed in approaching the subjects from a students perspective. It is extremely difficult to learn from this text because the examples in it are SO numerous that your though process is interuptted every 30 seconds with some illustrative example. I find these examples mostly to be unnecessary with a solid lecturer. Perhaps CENGAGE should have considered placing all the examples in one section and referencing them instead, but the fact remains that the learning process is disrupted often by unnecessary examples and illustrations.

The text itself is fairly straighforward, but it can be confusing at times. Again, a fact I attribute mostly to poor design and oversight. I would not recommend this textbook to anyone. It's overpriced and you will want to bang your head into the desk while trying to make sense of the poppycock these buffoons called editors expect us to accept. You have failed horribly CENGAGE. Forget your stupid GPS model, and just make a clear and easy to understand text. Is it really that hard?

Craptastic, February 24, 2008




This book sucks. I payed 3 for it at my bookstore and it has no binding for it. On top of that the text of the book and example problems is horrid and confusing to follow. To any teachers looking to use this book, KEEP ON LOOKING. IT SUCKS!!!!

Just Plain Bad, December 21, 2009


By 




For starters, I'd like to say I got a B+ in my Accounting class, so this review is not a "revenge" post or anything like that. However, this textbook is awful. There are technical typos, mislabeled headings, and problems everywhere. The writing style does a poor job of explaining complex concepts. The example problems do a poor job of explaining the logic behind the answers. The practice problems at the end of each chapter are useless since no answers are provided to see if you are doing the process properly (a HUGE drawback since these problems need to be practiced constantly).

The online homework does an extremely bad job of preparing you for the tests, so be careful if your professor is only using that to prepare you for your exams. My class had a 60% failure rate on the first exam. 60%!!!

Speaking of exams, if your professor is using the exams provided by the publisher, well then god help you. They are extremely, gruesomely hard. Find out ahead of time what your professor is using. If he's using the provided tests, then you need study like crazy and write out solutions BY HAND and FROM MEMORY before test day or YOU WILL FAIL! Remember: 60% failure rate!
