I rented this book from Amazon instead of purchasing it because of the big price difference. Sometimes I get skeptical of text books because they are such hit or miss items as far as teaching students the material. This book alone will not be enough. However, it is a great introduction into learning more about the processes of information systems and understanding the importance of them in the business world. Yes, it's dry and boring. Yes, it's required for school. However, the ability to comprehend and understand this material will be the difference between someone who moves up in the business world and someone who stays stagnant. (not bashing anyone who is happily stable).
It's worth looking at and paying attention to if it's required for school. Double it up with a good book about the processes of other database systems or microsoft access, and the material can really blow your mind once you find real world applications for it.
The book was easy and quick to read, however, the diagrams had typos within them. Some of the arrows were wrong (backwards/double sided when they should be single/etc.). My class was tested on the placement and direction of the arrows, so learning the correct placement was difficult. This is a small detail that should have been paid more attention to before publishing the book.
It has been impossible to access the web site in orden to have presentatios and other materials.
