Format: Paperback
I bought this book after reading the sample chapter online. Unlike other textbooks I have used, this one is specific designed for the ITGS syllabus. Students can be sure that if they are learning something from this book it will be relevant to the course. The IT systems in organisations contains a lot of theory, and students struggle a lot with it but the sample chapter explained it clearly.
The first chapters are well set up for students with little knowledge of hardware and software. The list of terms at the end of each chapter make it easy to keep track of what you need to know after each topic. The organisation of chapters makes it easy to teach starting on any topic - you don't need to follow the book chapter by chapter, though you can if you want. I like the way the author points out common mistakes that students often make in exams.
Each chapter has exercises and revision tasks to help students apply knowledge. I much prefer these to the basic word-matching and gap filling that you find in a lot of textbooks. The books website is useful in that it has extra activities and starter tasks that can be downloaded for free.
One criticism is that the book is only available in black and white, but everything is still clear and this does make it good value and more affordable than a colour book.

The chapter are clearly laid out and is very easy to comprehend. It has everything you need to know when learning ITGS for the IB diploma. However, I was a bit disappointed that the book wasn't in colour, since the book has a lot of pictures. The black and white just makes it a bit dull.
