What a joke Oct. 2 2013

DO NOT BUY THE BOOK!!! Just buy the coursemate/cengage study guide. It's much cheaper than the book and it's all you need. The fact they don't include that stuff in the price of a $150-$180 book is insane. What a money grab.

Buy what you need to get an A for less than 10% of this book and don't get robbed like I did.

Complete Garbage Jan. 12 2014
By Piper - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have never read a textbook worse than this one. I am currently enrolled in a basic computing course titled "Intro to Business Computing". Its a pre-req for many other courses, and granted its a "basic" course the text book they picked (above) is the worst I have even had to force myself to sit through. It is basic but it goes beyond basic, Its insulting to anyone, that is even if you aren't computer literate...

I don't EVER write reviews, this book is so bad in my opinion, I will go out of my way to 1-star this and hope the editor/publisher goes out of business. misty e. vermaat should be ashamed of putting such nonsense out into the mainstream. I don't know how on earth this book was ever selected to be my courses textbook....

I was very disappointed, particularly with "Beyond the Book". I expected much more than I received for the price of the book!

- The book is supposed to be about information systems, the book talks about general IT topics
- The book is badly written. Chapters are too long and the topics are scattered all over the book and not in a sequence.
- The price is also a turnoff
- Chapter 12 can be more organized than this it is like the writer ran out of space and started to cram a lot of information in the last chapter
- I advise the writer to summarize the topics at the end of each chapter
- The information section at the end of each chapter is irrelevant to the topic of the chapter
Sad excuse March 14 2014

The most unorganized textbook I've ever had to read in my life. Each chapter covers too many random topics and the following chapters repeat the SAME topics over again. Its not even a brief review; they are introducing the same topics as if it was new and fascinating information. And like Piper said, its insulting to anyone, even if you're computer illiterate.

Unfortunately, this was a required text for class so for everyone else who has to use this, good luck..
