If you do not have any idea what UML is, then 'Unified Modeling Language User Guide' by Booch et. al.

If you have some introductory idea about UML, then 'UML 2 Toolkit' by Eriksson et. al.

The second book mentioned above is conceptually very nice. A must have if you want to use UML in real world.
