I regret I havent figured it out in advance, before I procured the book, that the reason why this book is so cheap lies in theauthorization code be not working. The book can't be described as new because is not fully workable and without getting access to arcview maps one can't use it. If there's info that 6months free trial is available it should indeed be easy to get. But it isn't.

So far, working through about half of this, it has turned out to be a really useful step by step guide on how to Function ArcMap. It is more of an applied tutorials rather than a how can I do this guide. But has been a great refresher tool for me.

Before I bought this book, I used 'Understanding GIS: An ArcGIS Project Workbook' (also by Esri Press), which I think is the better book.

HASH(0x9e4b8534) out of 5 stars Good learning material but three editions show little change 5 Dec. 2010
By IanO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I reviewed this title several years ago and highlighted the excellent training material and structure it provides. My view on that remains. However, this book has literally 99% the same content and structure of the earlier editions, so if you are looking for new material you wil be disappointed. The software changes relating to the training examples are largely cosmetic, one or two modified dialogs and toolbars. Nothing of substance.

Also, there is no requirement to purchase this book to obtain the 180-day evaluation software (which is ArcGIS 10 Editor version). Indeed, it is no longer bundled with the book, you have to download the 3.9Gb file, but you also get the evaluation key, so this latest edition is unnecessary.

My advice is, save yourself a whole lot of money, buy an older version and obtain the software via download. There is so little change to the book you will not be disadvantaged. Amazon currently (Dec 2010) has used editions from $17.13.

ESRI Press could have provided an 'update' pdf of changes, but I doubt it would have got beyond a page!

HASH(0x9f06b7a4) out of 5 stars ArcGIS Tutorials Galore 1 Jun. 2011
By PittsburghRic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is 592 pages of ArcGIS tutorials. If you like tutorials, then this is the book for you. These tutorials will walk you through anything you would ever want to do with ArcGIS, in painful detail. I was new to ArcGIS before reading this book, it's a complex and powerful program. This book is meant to be read cover to cover, unlike most software manuals & books where you can just jump to what you need to learn. So,.. if you need to learn ArcGIS then this book is for you, but if you just need to learn specific tasks/ tools/ functions this is probably not the book that you want.

HASH(0x9f06b6a8) out of 5 stars incorrect title 9 Sept. 2009
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is not an audio book as titled on your website, rather, it is a book with two DVDs of data and software.

HASH(0x9e4b896c) out of 5 stars Screenshot problems 27 Oct. 2011
By Timothy B Askin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While the text of the book has been updated to reflect version 10, none of the screenshots used in the book have been updated. This can lead to substantial confusion.

Regardless, I buy a new copy every 6 months for the cheap software. I can keep this plan going for over 10 years and still come out ahead over buying a commercial one year license.

HASH(0x9f2ea4c8) out of 5 stars Getting Know ArcGIS Desktop 7 April 2009
By Alan M. Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The software that came with the course materials does not match the written text and examples contained in the text of the book. I am having to try to get information from ESRI to correct the flaws. The exercises beginning in chapter 9 do not work.
