From the Back Cover:

Now in its second edition, this book provides twenty-two hands-on cases for use as a supplement to an Introduction to IS/MIS text. Designed to teach students about the use of database applications, spreadsheet applications, and web design via small business scenarios, the book's approach to learning MS Office skills differs from every other casebook on the market. Instead of having students follow a formulaic problem-solving strategy, each problem in the book is context-based and forces students to think through the requirements of the particular small-business scenario. Built with a consistent pedagogical design, this applied thinking approach will prepare students to use MS Office in their careers as a tool for making business decisions.

The small business cases range from tracking business revenue within multiple stores to a restaurant remodel cost projection, a chiropractic office inventory andR client database, and many others.

This new second edition includes:

  • All cases updated to the 2010 version of Microsoft office.
  • Discussion questions at the end of each case which challenge students' critical thinking skills and encourage a higher level of analytical reasoning.
  • Cases which explicitly correlate with key concepts taught in introductory MIS courses.

This book is revolutionary as it is the only book on the market to provide MS Office cases that foster critical thinking skills. Instead of giving students step-by-step instructions, it forces them to think through a strategy relevant to a particular, context-based problem. I'm looking forward to using this book in my course.
—Elizabeth Baker, Wake Forest University
