Good Book, Kindle version flawed
By Bill A
I think the textbook CONTENT is great, informative and interesting. I like it.
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.

Basic overview - not a graduate-level text
By Lezlie L. Ramsey
If you have little experience working in or with information technology, then this is a good, basic overview. However, it's being used as an MBA text and for readers who have experience it is painfully basic and completely overlooks the possibility of an audience with experience. The saving grace to it are the case studies.

good book, much cheaper than standard text
By Amazon Customer
Same book as the standard text (this is the international version) great for the price. This was a good buy.
