The exercises are not well thought out with any care in terms of step by step instructions and goes all over the place.. The prof has this as the second book in a series of courses to review skills we learned in Law, et al's great book and learn new skills. But it is demoralizingly sloppy. I want to say "Mister I have done learned this before but what the heck am I doing here now, you are confusing me." It goes all over the place, too, from projected coordinates to importing CAD files. Oy vey.

This is a lab textbook for me but since we don't actually use it in lab... It is considered a homework book by our professor and we don't get any assistance from our lab instructor. Fortunately the book does a decent job walking you through the quite crazy ArcGIS Suite. My version is for 10 but I'm working with 10.1, doesn't seem to be too different to make that an issue. For someone that is adept at learning software this package will throw a curve ball at first but as with any new field and software more use means it becomes much easier and eventually intuitive. Which is great if you have the worst TA ever in lab. ;^)
If you want to understand what you're doing and why I think a formal course with this tutorial is best. If you're just learning new stuff because you haven't used ArcGIS since an older version it will serve the purpose. Bonus the book comes with a 1 year copy of ArcGIS (10 in this version). Can't beat that for the price of the book.

This kindle book does NOT include the authorization code. I didn't find this out until a day before class. Luckily the company that built the program has an "alternative" personal use code for $100.00. If you are buying this for a class... DON'T. Buy the hard copy Brand New, or you will regret it.

I rented this book for school and the steps for how to use ArcGIS where informative and very helpful. Ironically the book isn't what caused my any issues it was the program we had to use. The book had the occasional discrepancy between it and the UI for the program ( it can't be helped because the program is updated so obnoxiously often). It was a good book but, it you need to use it I would recommend simply renting it and printing out or taking notes on pages you will need if you need it in your future or regularly in your career.

I've been using this book in my Intro to GIS class, and I can't say that I like it very much. The exercises throughout the chapter are pretty straightforward, but the end of chapter assignments can be extremely frustrating at times. The author skips crucial little steps in just assuming that the reader knows what to do and it can throw off the entire assignment. The only reason I can really fully complete some of the exercises is because out teacher will help us when we get really stuck. My entire class seems to be pulling our hair out over certain assignments. I think this is helpful to get your feet wet with GIS, and even for intermediate users, but complete beginners should seek help to go along with this book.

The tutorials are great step by step processes but the assignments are difficult to do because there isn't an index to help you find how to do specific processes. For example, I needed to make a cloropleth map but forgot how. There is no helpful directory to find the tutorial that covered that process.

If you're learning to use the ArcGIS software version 10 or 10.1, this is a handy reference guide. It's packed with tutorials that are arranged in such a way that you can learn each function independently, but also get an overview of some of the more complex processes that require several functions. Learn to create and modify geodatabases, shapefiles, rasters, TIN's. Learn to georeference and spatially adjust your image files. Learn to geocode addresses from a table. Learn to display tabular data on a map. Learn to convert between vector features and raster. Learn to use the raster calculator. Really useful stuff here, official ESRI guide for their software suite.
This book walks you through activities and has a data CD to use. The issue is, it doesn't really clearly, concisely, or in an interesting way explain what you're doing. Welcome to high school algebra, where your teacher asks you to memorize the quadratic equation and you have no idea why. It's the same principle. Nothing sticks. The good thing about this book is that when you're in the field, you can look stuff up and go "ohhh so I suppose that's how I do that." Without serious lecture development from an outside source, this book is a sub par teaching material.
