1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money, 20 Mar 2013
I had to purchase this book for class, the book was very confusing and didn't help me. I would not recommend this book. It did not help with access or excel. There is probably a better book out there to purchase for a more reasonable price!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated and academic, 25 Oct 2011

J. L. Vergaert "Jean Louis" (Hammersmith, London United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forensic Analytics: Methods and Techniques for Forensic Accounting Investigations (Wiley Corporate F&A) (Hardcover)
I had to stop reading it in the middle, it definitively proved a time waster for several reasons:
1) I tried to find the purpose to use Access for analytical and audit review: ACL is much more productive in my view, so why bother? For instance, 4 chapters about Bendford Law can be put in practice in a few minutes using ACL Bendford feature.
2) There is no practical description about the Excel new pivot table and statistical features, and it totally misses the new Excel 2010 features (although the book is issued in 2011).
3) Examples of analytical review cover "oil consumption in a US State" and "poll results in California"... not really practical for our usual auditing reviews.
4) Writing style is confusing and overly academic, totally lacking any humor.
Typical university book, not adapted to practical investigations.
