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.

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.
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?
Easy language, various examples and online study guide. All are helpful in becoming an excellent Operations Manager.
