They may be right about the other exercises (a diagram or photo or two would help to understand the weight-lifter's lingo) but there's nothing wrong with sit-ups if you only do crunches and have your legs up with your feet flat on the wall. Easiest and fastest way to trim your beer belly.

The bicycle sit-ups they describe are also very good, but are too hard for the person just starting out on an exercise routine. Build up the number of sit-ups you can do before you move onto those.
