A good business case book with a focus on using MS Office Dec 16 2009
By Adam Benson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a good book.
This book is not about MIS in terms of how people and technology relate to one another (the IT artifact). It is a book that provides some credible business situations where one could use MS Excel or Access to derive a solution and corresponding report. Think of it as being like a math book filled with word problems.
I can talk about MS Office and kill my students with PowerPoint shows all day long only to have them able to check a box or menu selection - and still learn nothing of practical value. Only when I challenge them with these cases do they have a chance to demonstrate problem solving skills.
Our department has adopted this text for the introduction to desktop computing, and introduction to MIS. We believe it will help all the school's business students be better prepared for MIS, Accounting, Finance, HR, etc because it asks students to think critically and use the tools at hand to answer the questions that are relevant to these disciplines.

Mediocre Microsoft Office Book Dec 26 2010
By Lee - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book should be renamed as "Adventures in Microsoft Office". This book, just like the 3rd edition, has almost nothing to do with MIS or managing information systems; unless you confuse MIS with being an administrative assistant. It is just a collection of exercises related to Microsoft Office's Excel and Access. Making decisions about IT infrastructure requires knowledge about networking, application servers, and real production databases. (Access is toy for small businesses not savvy enough to use open source databases like Postgresql or MySQL. It's not something used in an enterprise environment. Large organizations can afford MS SQL Server, DB2, & OracleDB.)

If you want a book that actually deals with MIS, read Electronic Commerce by Gary P. Schneider. It's not perfect, but it gives a better overview than this book.

Book is outdated/needs work March 24 2014
By MAPE - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The assignments and chapter material do not have enough quality explanations so harder to learn. The book is outdated so all the data in the data files are over 5 years old. Would not recommend this book.

Lets be honest. People only buy these because we have no choice. It's not as if we actually want them.
