If you are patient there will be (September or a bit later)

Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design amazon

For now you can refer to this topic: Any Good Book/Resource for learning OOAD

I have found Craig Larman's Book very useful in UML and OO concepts.

Link

Hope it helps,

What books have you tried, and in which ways have they failed you?

Head First Design Patterns is very good to get a start. Also, I would recommend Martin Fowler "Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code". I have read only the intro to this book but it already gave me some good ideas. Often I can't get a good design in the beginning, so I just program the functionality and then refactor it into something better. GoF "Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Software" is my programming bible.

Hi Birju,

Please invest in books, I have learnt this in recent times. I am too waiting for the Head First Series to launch the OOP book. Once it is there I would definitely buy that, and would suggest you to do so. I am having Object Oriented Modeling and Design - by James Rumbaugh, which is fairly good book to start with.

Regards

I found Head First Design Patterns the best among a few OOP/design pattern books that I have. I look forward to reading Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design.

this question has been posted lots of times. go to Search page of this forum and go for according posts.

if you haven't found an appropriate book tip, ask which books you have tried/read so far, why you are not content with them and what alternative books can be suggested.

it just saves lots of double posts to the same subject.
