Poorly written text May 31 2012
By jayd691 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the worst textbooks I have ever read. Not only is there pages of garbage just for fill, the chapters have you jumping all over the place to future chapters, appendices, etc making it difficult to follow along. Never does the book get down to the core of the material you need to learn. Instead it rambles on and on about every little thing imaginable to fill out the book to a lengthy title to increase price for the book. It is also very outdated and should no longer be used as a textbook for actual courses today. I would not recommend anyone to use this book.

Don't waste your money Sept. 7 2010
By Swiss Fox - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I taught a Systems Analysis course (designed by someone else) using this book. I cannot imagine what the course designer was thinking when they chose this book. I have worked nearly 30 years as a systems analyst and project manager, and this is the worst systems analysis book I have seen during that time.
Firstly, the text in the book is very "busy" which makes it unpleasant to read.
Secondly, the book is very poorly organized and this makes it very hard to gain more than superficial knowledge about anything.

I found it impossible to put together coherent lectures using this book and had to use other resources instead.
If I teach Systems Analysis again, I will insist on using a different book.
I feel very sorry for the poor students who had to waste their money buying this book.

Horrible textbook Nov. 18 2010
By melissak - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is by far the WORST textbook to ever be written!!! It is just awful to read and will literally put you to sleep. Believe me, many of my classmates all talk about how far we COULD make it before getting drowsy. We're currently only in chapter 5 and I can honestly say if I've learned anything it's from the teacher and not the book. Students should highly suggest to their professors that another book be chosen for SAD courses, because this one does no good for anyone!
Too academic for my liking. March 6 2014
By Mark Pearl - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A brief outline to the SDLC from a traditional and object oriented perspective. Also got exposure to basic patterns and practices. A very general introduction to nearly everything about software engineering and system design. I found it a bit to academic and lacking the passion I have found in less academic style books.
