Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in how Information Systems are managed in a corporate environment. This class teaches you the basics of what modern enterprise is like and how information technology is incorporated into it. You will learn about all different types of computer hardware, even if some of the information is antiquated. You will also learn about computer software and how information systems are developed. There is a wealth of information in this class and the teacher explains the subjects very well. Not only would I recommend this to someone who is looking into how Information Systems are managed but also those who are just genuinely interested in computers.
I learned that there is so much I don't know about the corporate world. There is too much information to cover in a small section such as this but I will sum up the course. Information Systems are the heart of any business in today's society. Without information systems, businesses would fall behind their competitors. The reason I say this is because we take for granted what information systems are comprised of. Not only is your computer an information system but the servers that process the information you send out, the cash register that calculates the price of your meal or groceries, and the gas pump that tallies your total is an information system. I also learned about how E-Commerce is now becoming an incredible tool for start-up companies.

Advice for students:
Study. There is a lot of information and the Professor makes you write more than a few papers. Albeit these papers are relatively easy to write, the amount of information that you are required to learn is still pretty intense. I thoroughly enjoyed this class though.
