Hi All,

Can someone please point me to some website/book where I can practise more on the design pattern questions? I have been trying to find a kind of workbook which would give more practical examples, but haven't been able to find them. Everyone seems to say that you get the hang of design pattern concepts only through experience. Experience is fine, but is there no way to reinforce practical learning of the concepts through some exercises?


Thanks,
Preethi

Hi Preethi.

HFDP is a wonderful resource to learn Design Patterns because it explains in such simple way all the kind of polymorphism, inheritance, OO Design and UML (very basic). After you finish with it, I'd recommend you the book that brought all this movement Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software http://www.amazon.com/Design-Patterns-Elements-Reusable-Object-Oriented/dp/0201633612.

Happy reading!!
