Didn't Like It,
This review is from: Core Concepts of Accounting Information Systems (Paperback)
I am a student who used this book for my AIS class. After getting to know it for the semester, I have to say I really didn't like this text. The way the information is presented is incredibly dry. There is not really any color in the book besides black and blue, I didn't think there were enough real world examples, and I would have liked to have seen some more multiple choice review questions at the end of the chapters. I just feel like AIS is a subject that has a lot of potential to be incredibly dry (I mean who wants to talk about flowcharts for 2 chapters?) and given that I find it especially important for the author to make the book visually appealing with loads of real world situations and examples to show the importance of concepts with some more creative figures and pictures within the book. The style of writing could stand to be a little more engaging as well. Obviously AIS is an important subject and very relevant to our financial systems, but if we need to learn about it, why not make it a little more appealing?
