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.

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.
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.

The prices they charge for these books are egregious. And this one falls into that category. If you buy the new one, it will be obsolete in 18 months.Published 16 months ago by Dwight J. Worker
