Ever felt like throwing the UML book away?
Frustrated of how UML books are written? Feel like throwing the book in the fireplace?
I am so happy I got a solution. I got this book by accident, to say, and I am amazed of how easy and user friendly it is. I also find it complete, nothing seems to be left out. You can really complete the whole book within a weekend, but you have to take no breaks though, there's a lot of material here...
I strongly recommend this book to everyone who wants no headaches when learning UML.
A lot of thanks to the author!!

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.

I think it was worth the time
In essence I am still not a master UML designer. But I think I have the gist of what UML is and isn't. The book clears alot of misconceptions for me. I am also a little better with the terminology. I liked the pace these types of books set. It kept me on track to finish the book. Not the best, but it's a start.
