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.

Authors describe in detail obscure AIS methodologies. Some chapters read more like a dictionary. Very big on long numbered and bullet lists. I don't get the sense that the authors understand AIS so much as they did some research and cobbled together a textbook with minimal efforts.

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.

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.

This book is good in providing theory and an overview of AIS. However, it does not go deep into developing skills that an accountant should master for his trade.

This text needs to be completely reworked. It is clear that the authors are familiar with their subject, but only because they use industry jargon with a great enough frequency to make it a confusing read. In addition, I am surprised that Pearson published it as is. All of the other Pearson texts I have purchased have been very well done, this one is terrible. Huge sections of nearly every chapter are made up of bullet point lists, and the examples used for instruction are only occasionally useful. The book looks like it was a first draft / outline that didn't get finished.

I give this book two-stars instead of one only because I believe a good professor could assign portions of it as useful reference. If you are taking an online course where reading is a large portion of the instruction, suggest a book change to your professor or college.

Very good book; explanations are clear. I'm surprised this book hasn't gotten better ratings, although I suspect those who are rating it are people who have implemented or designed AIS's themselves, and that's something that I haven't yet done in my career. I used this book in an Accounting Information Systems class at UCLA Extension. We did not cover all of the chapters. The course was online, and as most online instructors don't teach very much, you have to rely on the book and auxiliary materials in order to learn what is necessary, and I'd say this book was at least average.

I've got nothing against the book, but it seemed to be long winded at sometimes. Notice: I didn't go and read this book thoroughly and extensively, but rather skimmed it for my class. It seemed to be long winded and kind of boring. (With the exception of course of the hacking, spamming, etc. chapter in the book) Coupled with my class though, it was a good resource to refer to whenever I needed some clarification on a topic discussed in class.
