This class was tough.
The course is required for business majors, so pick your professor wisely. The professor for my section wasn't terrible, but he seemed like he was looking to mark you down any and every chance he could. I have a near 3.7 GPA and even though I studied and worked my butt off, I could only manage to obtain a B in the class. I gurantee not one student received an A.
Although it was tough to get a good grade, I did develop a great understanding of computer systems and just how they are implemented in different kinds of businesses. The course expanded my knowledge of databases and introduced how a business may want to go about developing software for personal use.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed, you need to participate in class discussions every chance you get! Review PowerPoints before class and make flashcards so you can distinguish different types of info systems. Take control of your group for the end of semester project that is due. Practice your presentation thoroughly and be prepared to answer all kinds of questions concerning your topic. If there are any misunderstandings, take them up with the professor so you can truly understand the concepts and material. Good luck!
