5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for an introduction to UML
Bought it for a course on OO analysis and design. As a reference to learn UML from, it is a very good book with a lot of exemple and best practices and principles. Written in the context of UP method, they author does a good job to separate the two topics so that UML can be used in any other agile method. Great book overall!

2.0 out of 5 stars Repeats itself
The book is not straight forward, it doesn't treat a subject by explaining it in a direct maner. I believe the autor wanted to be thorough and explain things a lot but he did it by explaining the same things over and over. That resulted in long and dry chapters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for beginners, Oct. 6 2013

This review is from: Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative Development (3rd Edition) (Hardcover)
This book doesn't cover everything but it is a good way to start to learn about UML and Object-Oriented Design. The author is clear and repeat the information in different ways to make sure that you've understood it. I have used this book for an Object-Oriented university class and it has done a good job teaching me.

Ce livre ne couvre pas tout ce qu'il y a à dire sur le sujet mais constitue une bonne intoduction à l'UML et au design orienté objet. L'auteur est clair et répète l'information sous différentes formes pour s'assurer de la compréhension du lecteur. J'ai utilisé ce livre pour un cours universitaire et il m'a été bien utile pour comprendre la matière.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time, Oct. 10 2011
This review is from: Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative Development (3rd Edition) (Hardcover)
Larman's Book tries to be everything for anyone and fails miserably to be anything for anyone. The subject matter is composed of topics;

UML
Design Patterns

Both of which are addressed in passing rather than as a focus.

The sub-title; An introduction to Object Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative development also falls by the wayside due to Author's inability to express a positive opinion. In the first section of the book, the theme of trying to explain something by describing what it is NOT rather than what it is causes no end of confusion for the reader.

Subsequent chapters are not any less confusing or better focused.

All in all, this book will not teach you anything despite its all inclusive, universal title and sub-title. You will be better off picking up texts which deal with the individual subject matters promised in the title but undelivered by Larman.
