The estimated amount of time this product will be on the market is based on a number of factors, including faculty input to instructional design and the prior revision cycle and updates to academic research-which typically results in a revision cycle ranging from every two to four years for this product.
New Chapter 4, Management Concepts This new chapter discusses enterprise risk management, business process management, and expectancy theory, providing an interdisciplinary lens through which to view AIS topics.
Prior Material Application Problems Beginning with Chapter 9, every chapter contains a Prior Material Application problem asking students to apply fundamentals from previous chapters in conjunction with topics discussed in that chapter.
“AIS in the Business World” Every chapter opening is new or updated to keep up with the latest trends of real companies.
Readability: The book's writing style is conversational and engaging. The writing style has been highly praised. Students easily comprehend chapter concepts because of the conversational tone.
Structure: The text puts the most important, fundamental topics first, followed by applications in transaction cycles. “Nice-to-know” topics are included at the end, and can be covered or not at the instructor's discretion.
Content: The text de-emphasizes coverage of the systems development life cycle and places greater emphasis on developing students as accountants. Students will have a clear grasp of how AIS concepts impact business practice, regardless of the organization contexts where they pursue their careers.
Philosophy: The text emphasizes the “art” of AIS over its “science.” It helps students begin to develop their professional judgment as accountants, rather than encouraging them to memorize examples and solutions. This philosophy, along with the text’s outcomes-based approach, develops students’ critical-thinking skills as well.
Extensive end-of-chapter material: The end-of-chapter material is extensive, consisting of review questions; field exercises requiring research or interaction with accounting professionals; “making choices” exercises designed to present more than one possible solution; crossword puzzles and vocabulary matching exercises; and multiple choice quizzes.
Flexibility: The text provides the flexibility to cover event-driven accounting systems.
Bloom's taxonomy of educational objectives: The book's learning objectives, end-of-chapter material, and test bank questions are all tied to Bloom's taxonomy of educational objectives. A preface in the test bank describes Bloom's taxonomy and how the test bank questions are informed by it.
Author written supplements: All supplementary materials are prepared by text author Robert Hurt, ensuring complete compatibility between text and ancillaries.
