This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
The best book on UML. Oh sure, you can buy the three amigos books, take a few years to read them and if you can stay awake, you might actually retain something. This book is an easy read and answers your practical questions. The author is the same guy that wrote the "Refactoring" book at the top of this page. He makes any subject come alive.(trailboss Jan 2000)
