Prepared by Dale Klooster and Warren Allen, this best-selling, educational, general ledger package introduces students to the world of computerized accounting through a more intuitive, user-friendly system than the commercial software they’ll use in the future. In addition, students have access to general ledger files with information based on problems from the textbook and practice sets. This context allows them to see the difference between manual and computerized accounting systems firsthand, while alleviating the stress of an empty screen. Also, the program is enhanced with a problem checker that enables students to determine if their entries are correct and emulates commercial general ledger packages more closely than other educational packages. Problems that can be used with Klooster/Allen are highlighted by an icon. The benefits of using Klooster/Allen are that: *Errors are more easily corrected than in commercial software. *After the course ends, students are prepared to use a variety of commercial products. *Inspector is found on the IRCD, and allows instructors to grade students’ work completed in Klooster/Allen’s General Ledger software.
