1.0 out of 5 stars Worst. Textbook. Ever., July 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Organization of Information, 3rd Edition (Paperback)
I spent the first half of the semester actually reading the assigned chapters in this book, only to come away with a muddy concoction of terms and acronyms floating around in my brain. I consider myself a fairly intelligent person and I almost never have a hard time comprehending what I read, so I assumed that this information must just be really confusing. Well, then I went through all of the course power points one after the other (I took the class online) and guess what? This information is super simple and makes perfect sense when explained by people who know how to teach. My professor was searching desperately for a better text than this one and now I can see why.

Oh, and on top of the muddled delivery of conceptual information, the book is just poorly written. Seriously, someone else please write a new Organization of Info textbook!

Course powerpoints - do you still have yours? Those would be invaluable!
