From the Back Cover

Get the database skills that are in demand
More and more organizations are turning to database management systems to manage their accounting and other operational data. These organizations are looking for accountants with database skills and a good understanding of information technology.

With Chang and Ingraham’s Data Modeling and Database Design: Using Access to Build a Database you can develop the skills needed to build an actual accounting information system. Taking an approach that is both conceptual and practical, this book will help you understand the theory of data modeling, as well as its application and ultimate implementation in database design.

Key Features:

  • Step-by-step detailed instructions show how to model and design three essential processes of an accounting information system: the sales/collection process, the acquisition/payment process, and the human resources/payroll process.
  • Presents data modeling from an REA (resource-event-agent) perspective.
  • The approach is software-independent, but utilizes Microsoft Access 2003 to implement the data models throughout the text.
  • Multiple-choice and detailed problems at the end of each chapter reinforce learning.
  • Includes a CD-ROM containing the additional data and forms you will need to complete each chapter.

Format: Paperback
I was extremely disappointed in this book. First, it is extremely thin so don't expect much elaboration. Second, the authors elaborated more on their way of doing things (their "system") than on showing you how to create an accounting system. I got nothing out of this book.

The book is good, maybe the second edition would be more helpful but this one worked for me. It helped me out with the basics in Access 2007. The author explains step by step -and with the snap shots- each procedure. Maybe it is too simple for a programmer student but I am not, so it was OK to me

Be aware that this is the international student edition. I didn't see that information anywhere when I purchased this textbook.
