Review Text

  • By R. J. Jepps on 6 May 2003

    This is a very neat book in pocket-sized format. It won't teach you the UML if you don't already know it, but it does give you strong guidelines on how to create UML diagrams that clearly convey information to the reader.If you spend more of your time modelling than coding then this book is top value for money - and won't take up much desk space. If you are developing your own UML style guidelines then save yourself a lot of time - this book condenses a lot of knowledge into its tiny volume.There is a discernable influence from the author's previous work, e.g. on Agile Modelling, however you don't need to have bought into this philosophy to gain practical benefits from the author's considerable modelling experience.Less useful for beginners and hard core programmers, excellent value for designers, modellers and architects.
