I'm a GMU student, and I was very shocked and sad to know about how the instructor manuipulates her textbooks to be used in undergraduate IT course at GMU and GMU is supporting this behavior. First of all, this IT course has been taught for few years, several semesters, and every semester close to thousands of students enrolled in this course. You may think wow it's a popular course. In fact, it's not at all. The truth fact is that this course is a required course to fulfill the Information Technology requirement (3 credits) under the General Education Requirements for all undergraduate students. In the past semesters, both textbooks (the lecture & the lab) were bundled together and sold at GMU bookstore for like $200!! You can't buy the used book on either of them, becasue they were sold as bundled. And you simply can't buy the used book for the lecture textbook because a new code (on a new textbook) is required for students to take the online tests and exams. Honestly, you're basically buying the code! because the textbooks are just covering basic computing topics. You can buy very cheap books eleswhere on topics like how to create Powerpoint slides, Word 2007, Excel etc. You don't need to buy this expensive book! By "forcing" students to buy the bundled ($200), this instructor has unethically earned huge sum of money semesters over semesters. Perhaps, this isntructor has received complaints or what, as in this Fall semester, the textbooks are no longer in bundled edition, which is at least a good news, but you still need to buy the new textbook with the code in it. I question myself: why when money is come into play, one can really become greedy and loose your own self. It's sad...

I bought the package GMU offered for $200 something. All because of the code. This book SUCKS!!! I think Mason uses it because the author either teaches there or was a student there. The book is boring as hell and way too expensive if you buy new along with the "Introduction to Computer Information Sytems" book. This book doesn't bring a code. The other one "Intro to Comp. Systems" has it. If you want to save money, buy both books used and buy the code separately from Kendall Hunt Publishing Company. You need the code to do the exercises and to take your tests online but the book are just to guide you on how to use Microsoft. The class is boring too but it's mandatory so good luck.

I did not learn anything from reading this book that I wasn't already taught in middle school in USA. Only useful thing about it was the code on the inside cover which only works one time making it impossible to resell. I would never have bought this if my teacher had not made it impossible to take the tests to pass the class without the code from the book.

I'm guessing if anyone else is looking at this book on Amazon, they are also a victim of George Mason University's stupid IT 103 requirement, which requires you to buy this book new for the access code. The book is otherwise useless; you don't use it. If you can find a way to buy an access code without buying the book, do it.

As everyone else said, it's a required book for GMU IT-103 class. We only used this book for 1 assignment. Everything else was pulled from online source using the access code from the lecture book. Really a terrible book. Not updated past the 90's! he Microsoft word, excel and database pictures and menu selections are out of date. It takes prior knowledge of a past computer system to figure out what the book is trying to tell you what to do. Too expensive for outdated technology instructions.

This book, first of all, is a joke. Like you are noway going to read it, it tells you step by step on how to use excel. It's the lab book, and you should buy it used! Only buy the lecture book new, because of the code, but you don't need the code for this one, because the assignments are submitted on Blackboard.
