3.0 out of 5 stars UML for Dummies? June 5 2004
By A Customer
Title is a bit offputting and initially I was reluctant to purchase this book because of that. Its not a bad book but its got nowhere as much detail as the UML 2 Bible. It does contain more useful content than UML Distilled 3rd Edition and Fast Track UML 2.0 though.
Postscript: Having spent more time with this book, I have to change my original opinion and rating. This is actually a rather good book and it is considerably better than several other rather superficial UML 2 books (UML 2.0 Fast Track and UML Distilled 3rd Edition) that are available. If you can get past the "for Dummies" title and buy this book you will not be disappointed. Don't waste your money on UML 2.0 Fast Track, UML Distilled 3rd Edition, UML 2 Toolkit and Teach Yourself UML 2 in 24 hours like I did, just get UML 2 for Dummies and then UML 2 Bible and you'll have everything you need to get a good grip on UML 2.0.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Handy Reference Dec 28 2003
By A Customer
As a system developer using UML for the first time, this book has been a great introduction to the techniques of analysis using UML 2, as well as a handy reference to pick up when I have a particular question about a diagram. Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars UML 2 For Dummies Dec 10 2003
"UML 2 for Dummies" is an excellent source for both students and users of UML. I was looking for a good tutorial on how UML 2 might affect systems engineering documents and found it here. Having completed the book, the reader should expect to be able to recognize and understand UML 2 diagrams and to comprehend the role of the various diagram types in the engineering process. The reader will also be able to prepare UML 2 diagrams to implement his own designs using the book as a reference. If your project is moving toward UML and object-oriented techniques or, if you just want to understand what system engineers and software designers are doing these days, this book is a good investment of your time.
