This text will fit best in an MIS course where students have to do a lot of hands-on, problem-solving projects, especially on the Internet. Haag works well for professors who want an interactive, engaging experience. If a professor has large classes or wants a way to get everyone involved (bus/non-business majors), this is a useful book for them. The overall content and organization of the book has been retained, providing a clearly focused overview of information systems. The second edition continues to cover management information systems concepts with a different approach and organization of topics compared to traditional introductory books. Electronic commerce and its effect on organizations is a major theme in this text, threaded through each chapter. The authors assume that students know a little about hardware and software and focus more on the way organizations use information systems. There are many sidebars, boxes, and examples pulled from real-world organizations and many individual and group projects for students to work on-tying theory to practice.
