The goal of the second edition is to combine accounting information system content with hands-on use of Dynamics GP software. Every chapter includes SmartList searches, Internal Control Activities, and Sarbanes-Oxley review.
SmartList searches reinforce chapter work and contain data that easily exports to Excel or Word. Internal Control Activities include DGP’s security features, audit trails, and role-based accounting. The textbook emphasizes internal controls through the use of two types of exercises–transaction controls and system controls. The Sarbanes-Oxley compliance section reviews how DGP meets SOX standards and regulations. Every chapter ends with a summary and review, including multiple-choice, true/make true, or short answer questions. Each chapter also includes Going to the Net, Flashcard Reviews, four end-of-chapter exercises, and an index.
