Many AIS textbooks do not explain the basic structure of an entire accounting information system. When students finish this textbook, they will really understand an accounting system. Some books focus more on technology topics than basic accounting system topics. Few accounting graduates will apply for jobs to build databases. Most will be users, auditors, and implementers of accounting systems and need to understand how accounting software works. As a result, this book has a practitioner emphasis, not a systems development emphasis as do many accounting textbooks. Intended to meet the needs of a first course in accounting information systems at either the undergraduate or graduate level, this textbook may also be used as a review text in second or subsequent courses in this area.
