MyMISLab: Break through to engaging experiences.

MyMISLab engages students in real business situations through simulations, and improves student’s course results with additional study materials, quizzing, and testing.


Guides: Three Guides per chapter – one each on ethics, security, and timely topics – foster thought, discussion, and active participation by concentrating on current issues in information systems. These amplify the chapter’s core material and help students strengthen their problem-solving skills to become better business professionals.

NEW! Chapter Opening Cases: New cases in the Third Edition demonstrate how information is relevant in the real world and include:

  • GearUp (Chapters 1-6), a fictional start-up selling discontinued sporting goods and last year’s seasonal items at rock-bottom prices, but facing operational issues.
  • PRIDE (Chapters 7-12), a Performance Recording, Integration, Delivery, and Evaluation system, that uses cloud technology and a wide array of mobile devices to integrate patient exercise data with health care providers, health clubs, insurance agencies, and employers.

MIS InClass: This feature--which appears in each chapter and is meant for in class group work--contains exercises, projects, and questions that help students connect classroom knowledge to everyday life, encouraging active participation.

Chapter-Ending Cases: Chapter-Ending Cases – all less than one year old – allow students to think about the information in the chapter as it relates to a real business.

Collaboration Exercises: Collaboration Exercises foster teamwork outside of the classroom by enabling students to work on projects collectively, via collaboration software such as SharePoint through MyMISLab.

Office Application Exercises: Office Application Exercises, 27 in all, allow students to complete business application assignments in Excel or Access.

AIE: A fully annotated instructor’s edition gives professors helpful hints and tips for creating a more engaging classroom
