I'm taking an Accounting Information Systems class right now and I find this project very helpful.
It teaches you how to maintain a basic set of books, how to prepare necessary paperwork for all kinds of transactions and the most important thing - how to learn to use an accounting information system (which is different at every company).
It introduces you into basic principles of fraud control and auditing.
And even though this system is very basic and traditional (compared to modern more sophisticated and computerized), I bet that you will find it very helpful anyway.
Be aware that most likely you will have to fill out all the documents in this packet, so after you are done with this project the resale value of this packet will be zero.

First of all if you are considering buying this product buy a NEW copy. This is essential because you will go through the paperwork and fill out most of the information. If you buy a used copy there is a good chance you will not get much value from it and you may end up buying a new one later.

Now that I have that disclaimer out of the way let me tell you about this project. It is basically a must for accounting information systems classes and you will be glad you have done it after it is done. That being said I don't know if anyone truly enjoys doing this type of work. The project is set up to allow a student to work through a manual accounting system for the last 15 days of a year. You work with a fictious company with a limited number of transactions. The project includes lots of blank business documents and you will fill all of them out in order to complete the project. It allows accounting students to become familiar with common business documents and how a small business accounting department might work. This project takes around 30-60 hours to complete.

I completed this project a month ago and I learned so much about the workings of a manual system. I will say it was very tedious and I don't know if I would have decided to study accounting if we still had to do everything by hand. I am glad I have done it and it does help conceptually to see how a manual system works from the transaction phase through to financial statements. It is a very interesting project - just remember buy a NEW packet.

After receiving the packet, I looked through and not realizing what was included , assumed it was in good condition. However, when my class started using it, I realized almost half of the materials were missing! So I ended up having to buy another packet with next day air adding almost $30 to the cost! So disappointing!
