Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Thomas A. Pender
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Practical! Yet very easy to read


During the last 4 years I has been doing a lot of UML trainings, so I have read and used multiple UML books. This one outbeats all others by its reader-friendly style, comprehensive examples and explanations of various UML techniques (you won't find these in other UML books). It is not bulky but contains everything UML starter or even intermediate user would need: the book not only outlines UML notation but also presents quiz at the end of each section to test your knowledge, as well as web application case study and guidelines on choosing UML tool.
And yes, one can really make it in one weekend! Now I'm recommending UML Weekend Crash Course to all my students who wish to get up to speed in UML quickly and efficiently. This book is an excellent choice both for class and self-training.

A GREAT book -- the best of its kind


I bought this book at the same time I bought the O'Reilly T-SQL book. This is by far the better of the two. It's up-to-date, thorough, and quite deep. I like the writer's conversational style and I appreciate his committment to avoiding filler material. This book is one of the best SQL Server books I own and has already more than proved its worth in the problems it has helped me solve. I can recommend this for anyone wanting to become an expert in Transact-SQL.
