Overview

Getting to Know ArcGIS® for Desktop is a workbook that introduces the principles of GIS via hands-on exercises. Readers are shown how to use ArcGIS for Desktop software tools to display and present maps and data, and then query and analyze the data. The third edition has been reorganized and includes new topics such as exploring online resources and raster data and contains new exercises, data, and learning tools.  
Known for its broad scope, clarity, and reliability, Getting to Know ArcGIS for Desktop is equally well-suited for classroom use, independent study, and as a reference. A data DVD for working through the exercises is included with the book, and access to a 180-day trial of ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop is provided.

    Great Book - Terrible service

    I ordered this book for a class I'm taking at school. I needed the book quickly so I could have it in time to take a quiz. I paid extra money for the book to come in 1-3 business days. One would think that the book would actually be delivered in the time promised. I didn't relieve my book until a full week later! I was unable to answer the questions on the quiz! I called customer service to inform them that they didn't follow through, and I wanted the extra money back that I paid for it to be delivered sooner. However, they were not willing to admit their mistake, or give me my money back. I will no longer be the faithful B&N customer I once was!
