Title: Essentials of Systems Analysis and Design, Second Edition
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Authors: Joseph S. Valacich, Joey F. George, Jeffrey A. Hoffer
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5

I was forced to use this book for a class. I find the text very unclear and hard to understand with quite a few errors. The layout of the pages is poor and the author seems to get lost in his/her own words. The problems found at the end of each chapter never give enough information to tell you what you are supposed to be doing and they often ask for information that is not found in the text. For what you get this book is extremely overpriced. I may even sell this book back.

Good book to prepare for exam

Today I passed my exam with score 42/61. I used this book togerther with STS. STS has very basic questions. Real exam questions are more difficult. Thanks the book I passed the exam.

Book is good organized. Easy to read. Not too many fonts and note pictures. All examples in the book are tested and are easy to repeat on home PC.

Lots of content - poor presentation

This is yet another classical textbook in a Computer Science undergraduate curriculum. It was recommended heartily by my professor (when in fact he has never used it in the course), but I chose not to buy it. And was glad about it aftewards since after reading half of it in the library I found it
1) Boring2) Exceedingly and unnecessarily detailed3) Poorly organized
For those of you who don't fall asleep while reading the first 200 pages, this might prove to be a good investment. Otherwise, I'd suggest taking good notes during classes and consulting online references, because this book is just not worth the price (in my opinion, of course).
