Ranchers,

Can anybody suggest me good book for OOAD? I am pursuing the OCM (SCEA formerly) so I need to study OOAD as well. I know UML 2 and have cleared the OCUP certifications as well. So need just few book suggestions.

When I looked at the FAQ page, they mainly talk about UML and very few though old books talk something related to OOAD.

Thanks for help,

- Barkya

Since you are already familiar with UML then OOAD concepts are really things like open close principle, liskov substitution principle etc.

I would suggest look through the website OO Design which discuss OO design principles and design patterns which is useful for EA cert.

And if you want a bit more overview you may want to check out the Java Design by Kirk Knoernschild Chapter 1 only. The rest of the book talks about UML and design process.

And lastly there is a Head First OOAD book.
