For being a MIS book, I feel like this book leaves a lot to be desired.

I bought this book for a Masters course (my undergrad degree being MIS), and I wasn't that impressed. It has some good information on the social aspect of IT in the workplace, but when it comes to application of IT, I felt it could have shown a lot more. I have been tutoring people who are not familiar with MIS because the book does not show how to use database functions in Excel, some of the most basic of applications. How can you have "assignments" and "projects" in a book that you wish for the students to complete, but do not show how to solve them?

Granted, I understand that this is a MIS class, and for those that have a MIS degree should know how to solve these problems. However, this class is a "general" core class, so the majority of the students are NOT familiar with advanced database applications, especially in Access. I just feel that for a general MIS book, it should have had more explanation of the technical aspects of IT, not just the business and social aspects.

Pricey, but for students serious in the subject, this will be a valuable investment. Well written, balanced, and comprehensive. For years now, Laudon has been a pillar author in the field of Management Information Systems. This title is well written, well balanced, with detail subjects, cases, examples, review etc. It covers wide range of Information Systems aspects. The cases provide real case practical insight of the subjects to the student, coupling the theory to real life cases, providing a view of real life cases, making it interesting to the enthusiastic student. Good about this title is also that it's constantly being reveiwed and updated. Hence every two year or so, a new edition. As technology is constantly evolving, reviewing and updating the text is very valuable. For example this 12th edition has new topics like, cloud computing, green comptuing, 4G networks, mobile platforms, and more. This 12th edition also comes with online video cases, for each chapter. Instructors using this book can find instructions on how to make the videos avalaible to their students. Whished this book could be offer at a much better price for students, although a valuable investment. Students who choose to continue in this field, will keep this book and treasure it, as an excellent reference book, especially in the beginning of their careers.Read more ›

This book repeats itself over and over. It contains definitions thrown in randomly. Pretty much I can sum up this book by saying, "Technology is growing, a company needs to keep up with technology and integrate it into all aspects of the company. If not they can fall behind other companies." this is defined in hundreds of different ways. it doesn't go into much detail. This is very sloppy work.

This book is starting to show some age, if you're serious about the subject get the 13th edition, if its just for a class - this book will suffice.
References like 250,000 apps in the App Store when there are over 750,000 will slowly be outnumbered statistics.
On a plus side, this book does a good job at explaining the technical definitions, so much so if you have a background in IT you'll be ready to skip paragraphs. Not the worst textbook I've ever read, case studies are excellent but the diagrams are awful.

I had to use this textbook for a Master's level MIS course. It was outdated and hard to follow. The author could have done a much better job in organizing the material and presenting it. The fact a MIS textbook is in print format surprises me. Technology and IS changes too quickly to use print for teaching this subject. I would highly recommend the academic world reconsider their approach.

Using this book as the text for an online MIS class. The index is good. Each chapter has vocabulary terms with page numbers so you can look it up in the chapter make it easy to do the quizzes for class

I had this as an online course where the instructor didn't really do anything more than grade my scanned homework assignments and quizzes. The book is not an elementary read, but with a few careful readings and walking through the examples, I was able to self-teach without the need for an instructor. I happily received an A+ in the course.

A lot of people complained about this book, but I think those same people were trying to read it as though it is a book to curl up with on a rainy day. This isn't an action-adventure novel, but a math-based book. If Laudon was successful in teaching the concepts to me--a non-math guy--then anyone can learn from the book if they put forth the effort required. I recommend spending one full day per chapter where you work through the problems with the author...if you simply try to read the chapter without working through the examples, you'll find yourself in the same boat as a lot of my peers.
