There seem to have been a mistake in the shipping of the product I ordered.
I was under the impression that I was ordering Management Information Systems for the Information Age by Stephen Haag, et al 2nd Edition (2000).
However, I recieved the book today (3/11/02) and it is the 1st Edition (1998), and I need the book for class which begins on Thursday, 03/14/02.

These concepts are so vague and open to interpretation - the book does a good job of explaining them. It doesn't try to pigeon hole you into the authors way of thinking about these (which is most often the case). Good reading for the aspiring manager or the experienced manager.

I wish all my books were from McGraw Hill - the support is awesome! A full glossary online and sample tests and key study points all ready to copy and paste into your own study notes!!! Really wonderful company.

Management Information Systems for the Information Age Feb. 19 2001
By Robert T. Pitlak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have used (and continue to use) this text for a college class on MIS. It's among the best textbooks I've ever come across. The book is filled with real world stories of real companies and how they have improved their competitive positions using IT. It also contains numerous 15-25 minute group activities and "On Your Own" assignments. Each chapter ends with a list of Key Terms, as well as several short answer and discussion questions.
Finally, and what I like most about the text, is a section on "Real HOT Group Projects." Many of these require creation of database reports or spread sheet pivot tables. So, you may find yourself diverting some time to teaching spreadsheet and database skills. But how can you teach the application of technology to managing and creating information, without actually using technology to do just that?

Good Book, Kindle version flawed March 27 2011
By Bill A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think the textbook CONTENT is great, informative and interesting. I like it.

But..

This is my first college textbook in a Digital format. I purchased the kindle version because of the dramatic price difference between e-book and hardcover.I am stuck with this e-book as the class is well underway.

I am using the Kindle for PC and the Kindle for Android version reader software.

While I think it is great to have a copy of the text on both my PC and my Android device for reading, the lack of actual page numbers makes it impossible to find instructor assignments and quote the text for my written assignments.

The page numbers on this particular version are not useful. I show 21245 pages.

There are no references to actual page numbers.(cannot search by page)

The content appears to be re-arranged from the printed version. Some of the learning modules are placed in the back of the text instead of after the chapter in which they refer.

The diagrams and images are not zoom-able on the PC version.

I am pretty sure this problem rests with both McGraw-Hill publisher and Amazon for allowing something like actual page numbers to be ignored.

I am excited that e-textbooks are beginning to show up as a way to save money and save my back from carrying 30lbs of books; however, they need to improve this format to be truly useful for something important like an expensive education.

This book is an asset. Even after finishing my course, I haven't sold it back. I know I am going to use it for reference later on.
Easy language, various examples and online study guide. All are helpful in becoming an excellent Operations Manager.
Great textbook Nov. 27 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought it for my IS class and it turned out quite easy to read with a light tone. Concepts are explained clearly and case studies are very useful. In fact, most case studies were surprisingly interesting to read and informative at the same time. I really enjoyed browsing through the case studies. It really is written with the information-age student in mind. Great read overall, I'm glad my class used this textbook.
