Note From Author:

This book was created to provide a different experience for students beginning their studies in information systems.  Instead of being bombarded with information from a business systems perspective, the goal of this book is to provide a baseline of material regarding information systems in all disciplines, not just business systems – hence the name No Boundaries! 

Each chapter includes a homework assignment that is purposely designed to relate to the content area, however, is not remedial in nature.  Instead, the assignment hopes to provoke some discovery learning, association, and fun!
