The book covers the subject matter expected of an AIS text. As a professor, I would have liked to have better instructor resources. There are only solutions manuals, power points (way too detailed, just like all textbook power point presentations are), and test banks. I would prefer something with a good instructor's manual, sample syllabus, etc. The chapters are organized a little weird. It's hard to get a good big-picture without going over things many, many times.

This textbook was used in my Accounting Information Systems class. It was very hard to recall, remember, or stay interested in anything this textbook covers. Examples are vague, the material is often very dense, and I am often left wondering what is intended to be taken away from each chapter. I can honestly say that after reading each chapter the class covered at least two times, I took away almost nothing from this book. It really feels like a waste of time to read. Instead, I had to rely on my instructor and the internet to learn anything. At the end of the class, our instructor asked for our opinions on the textbook. Not one person had a positive opinion. I hope our instructor decides on switching to a different textbook in future semesters.

I would probably enjoy twisting rusty barbed wire around my privates more than reading this book. South-Western/Cengage Learning produces the worst textbook. The second time I've had to deal with their incompetence in their authors and the way they set up the pages and chapters with diagrams referenced 3 pages ahead or 5 pages back. Who reads like this???? This book will put you to sleep before you make it past page 2. Where's the hands on experience with using accounting information systems to go along with this book? Oh yeah its not there it doesn't exist because actually using a software web based application to experience the functioning of an accounting information system would make too much sense. These people fail at life. They must have paid off some high officials to get this crap pushed down the throats of students under the guise of important educational material. Waste of money and time and resources. May God have mercy on all your souls who produced this gibberish.

Only a professor would think this book is even close to relevant. Prepare yourself for a ton of useless vocabulary and zero context. Add on top of that a very outdated understanding of how information systems function in the real world, and you have this disaster.

This book was required for a class I took. Very boring (OF COURSE) but I like a more practical guide to application than what this book provides

This was one of the last classes that I had to take for my bachelor's degree in accounting. This was the exact book that I needed for my class and it was around $100 cheaper than what I would have paid going through the school's book store website. I would recommend this book to anyone that is taking an accounting systems class and this is the required book.

I have to say, renting from Amazon has not been that pleasant of an experience. Specifically, it's the return process. I sent a book back in the same condition I received it in, and was then charged the balance to buy the book. Why? Because apparently it was in an unacceptable condition when they received it. Now, I have no way to verify this, but it seems like a good ole switch-a-roo was done. This is the exact thing I was worried about happening when renting a book online. And it happened.

Now, I am the proud owner of a book that you can read for yourself in other's reviews how exciting this prospect is looking for me....

It's a textbook. At the same time it is incredibly informative.

The book was exactly as advertised. Well, with the exception of the dead gnat that was squished in the front cover. Lol
