    The 5th Edition of ¿Investing Online for Dummies¿ is the best yet! It reflects the latest changes and improvements to online investing Web sites. I enjoyed how the book addresses the building of an online information system, setting up a basic investment strategy, and determining how much to invest.

This allows me stay in touch with my investments while I travel. I highly recommend ¿Investing Online for Dummies, 5th edition¿.

    not up to the standard

    I've read many how to books including numerous in the dummies series. I found this book lacking in many respects. First, it had many laundry lists of web sites and there seemed to be little effort to review or exert quality control. Second, I didn't feel that the author had proper professional background to speak with any authority on the topic. Third, I didn't find this title well organized or easy to read.
