5-0 out of 5 stars Struck by its simplicity and completeness!
I love this book. I am struck by its simplicity. How can a book be so simple, yet so clear in delivering the message, in a topic that is considered to be complicated? Computer architecture is not easy, but with the help of this book I was able to build a very solid foundation when I took the course. And even though it is an introductory book, I still refer to it in more advanced courses and related topics.

5-0 out of 5 stars The usefulness of a text book often depends on the professor...
I found this book to be one of the most clearly written texts on the subject of computer architecture(as opposed to the terse, cryptic Astrom and Wittenmark books for control systems, for example.)
4-0 out of 5 stars Nice and Simpe Introductory Book
I have three of M. Mano's books and this one is the one I've liked the most. I found the author's exposition of the material good on average. I'm using this book for self-study. The book provides a nice overview of computer architecture by focusing on the basic concepts in manner that is not dependent on a particular real-life architecture. Read more

This book provided a method to gather requirement efficiently but the rest of the method should be revised.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book, right price
Beyer & Holtzblatt have done an excellent job describing the process of contextual design.I'm currently implementing a new company-wide business process, in conjunction with co-workers,and thought it would simply be a good idea to both refresh my memory, gather ideas, and form concepts that would be helpful in the organizational design process.This book has undoubtedly served the purposes I've wanted it to. Again, excellent book - worth the buy.

Editorial Review

In this eagerly awaited second edition, Grady Booch draws upon the rich and varied results of those projects and offers improved methods for object development and a new, unified notation.With numerous examples implemented in C++, Booch illustrates essential concepts, explains the method, and shows successful applications in a variety of fields.Booch also givespragmatic advice on a host of issues, including classification, implementation strategies, and cost-effective project management.A two-time winner of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best OO book on the market.
This explains every facet of OO design and analysis.I bought this book years ago and have used it to reinforce many conversations about OO design.What I have found is that the old timer C and COBOL programmers have a very difficult time even thinking like this.This book should be on every developers book shelf.Many of the topics are so common in todays programming disciplines that many students do not even realize they are following it.Many of the patterns and concepts are now so common place in languages like Java and C# that the new developer just thinks this way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great , tough Book, not for beginners or Non C++ programmers
Mixed opinions about the book. The author never claims that beginners can easily understand nor he warrants that you need not know C++. It may take sevaral months or years to read this book. If you say you know this book for 100%, you are only few steps away from Booch's level. His process is great if we have the time, patience and comfort to follow it and apply it. You should have some prior knowledge of OO to understand Booch's language. Of course C++ basics. Though the chapter on Booch Notaion is dated, you still need to read it to follow the remaining chapters. But if you have read UML, booch notation is not tough to understand. I wish he re-writes with additional Java examples and gives some business applications like banking/insurance examples rather than Gardening Sensors and Heaters, and also drop notations chapter and assume that readers know UML. It will be great if he guides us how his process fits into the internet era within tons of frameworks/patternsaround.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic well worth the read
This is a very good book on the subjects of OOA/OOD. It emphasizes concepts and has a strong academic flavor, which I appreciate "accidentally." Although the particular C++ programming language is not the focus, you need to know a least some C++ to understand the example code snippets, which helps you grasp the concepts.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars insufficient for all levels
I found this book to be inadequate at all levels. It does not go into sufficient detail for beginners, and neither does it provide rigor for the experienced controls student. Do yourself a favor and buy separate texts for the basics (like Brogan's Modern Control Theory) and for the advanced.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book
Up to this time,there are no 5 stars books in Linear Systems. However,this book is one of the best 4 stars books available for the subject.Through the book, the author sometimes assumes that you know or understandsome topic, formula,...etc. without mentioning it. However,you can do it,but it may take you some time to figure out what it is. If you are goodenough in linear algebra you will have no problems to handle the book up tothe last page. Chapter 2 & 3 are the most important chapters in thebook because they prepare you for the rest of the book. MATLAB is beingused in a nice and helpful way to visualize some concepts and applicationsof the linear control theory. I recommend this book as a textbook for anintroductory linear systems course and also for self teaching purposes.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Good, the Bad, and the Insufficent
My overall impression with this book is:satisfactory.Though there are a more errors then desired, and a few that are pretty confusing, the majority of the book is accurate and very instructive.I would recommendthis book as a reference for introductory treatment of Linear System Theoryand DI just completed this book in the beginning of March.Having aControls background I found this book both helpful and instructive, yetlacking in sufficient detailed explanation on some tough topics.Chapter2: 'Mathematical Descriptions of Systems' was very helpful with thedetailed definitions and easy examples. Chapter 3: 'Linear Algebra' is achapter that could use expanding.Some of the topics addressed in thissection are speedily discussed and rapidly completed.The first edition ofthis book was chided for it length.This edition must be chided for itbrevity.However, when lack of explanation abounds, examples and homeworkproblems can make up for deficient instruction.Chapters 4 through 6 areeasy to follow and through in their treatment.Chapter 7, however, isanother chapter where too much explanation was removed.The examples arehard to follow in this chapter, and there are a few very confusingmistakes.Chapters 8 and 9 are very well written, though confused attimes.However, they yield a sufficient knowledge of the addressed topics.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great pump-primer for ASP.NET developers
For .NET developers new to test-driven-development who want a recipe for the process, an invaluable book. This is not a concept book, but rather a concrete example that gets a little loose towards the end. Those who have also adopted Model-View-Controller for their ASP.NET applications will be able to logically extend the first half of the book to test their web interfaces, something that is admittedly difficult using the "stock" ASP.NET design philosophy.
5-0 out of 5 stars First exposure to test driven development
I attended a workshop on test driven development presented by James Newkirk. I was so intrigued with the concept that I had to go out and get his book to find out more. As a result our project now uses NUnit, TestDriven.net for test driven development and find that this has really boosted confidence in the developers and their code. The concept of test-driven development is a very useful agile method of writing code to the requirements based on tests (Red/Green/Refactor). This has certainly changed my perspective towards development and want to thank James Newkirk for purveying this concept.

5-0 out of 5 stars You need this book in your Agile Library!!!
Test-Driven Development in Microsoft.NET rises head and shoulders above the other books on the subject. While I know that is a very strong statement to make, the authors have made the focus of the book a very practical one.Don't get me wrong, there are several other great books on this subject, but they all seem to fall down when it comes to real-world situations.

1-0 out of 5 stars too many junks in the book
I have to say it's a book full of junks and gaudy texts. The author wants to cover all the topics in this field but he ignores the readability as a scientific reader. Most of the time you may find all the texts are lack of focus.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Coverage on Distributed Systems
I just completed this book for a graduate course on Distributed Systems and was amazed at the volume of coverage on so many topics ranging from CORBA, RPCs, Fault Tolerance and Security to list just a few.Tanenbaum is reknown as being the best writer in Computer Science and this is an excellent book to read and use as a reference.My only complaint is that it is starting to show signs of being dated and this is why I gave it only 4 instead of 5 stars. Hopefully, in a new edition there will be coverage on the super network GRID and more enhanced and extensive coverage of Intelligent Agents.

we used this book for undergrad se classes i taught.
2-0 out of 5 stars Too much information crammed in one single book
I agree with Keith here on the irritant QUOTE "constant referencing of graphs and figures, as well as notations from previous chapters, it really inhibits my learing when I have to keep flipping back and forth to follow a train of thought. There are also a few chunks of the book that are very, very hard to follow the logical train of thought and require meticulious attention to the detail, and often require rereading. UNQUOTE.
3-0 out of 5 stars High-level view
Very much the 30,000 foot view of systems engineering. I picked this book up because I saw it referred to all over the place, and assumed that it was reasonably definitive. Sadly, it is not. What the book does do is give the reader a reasonably good high-level overview of systems engineering in general, and of some of the techniques involved in estimating the "ilities" of a given system design. However, the level of detail on any one subject area is very light, and the bias of the book is very much toward DoD-style systems engineering. A good book for systems engineering managers. System designers should also seek out Wymore's "Model-Based Systems Engineering" for a thorough understanding of requirements and design. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Book-Keep These Things Mind
This book is great, whether your a beginner or an expert just wanting to go back to your roots. Every part is described and you have websites that you can order them from. It's all very good. But there are just some things to keep in mind. First of all, there's a section on motors where he describes them and what they're used for. I assumed that we needed to buy them, so I bought the 5 pack that he mentions. Now on the next chapter afterwards, it turns out that we dont need those motors, but we need gearhead motors. So to me I was a little bummed because the motors he describes are basically for you to test and have fun with. It wasn't expensive but I was a little misguided and didnt like the shipping expense I made on motors I wasn't even going to apply to the robot. This brings me up to my next point: BUY ALL THE PARTS YOU NEED IN ONE ORDER. I had the idea of slowly ordering my parts as I read the book but the problem is that places like Digi-Key charge you a ridiculous amount for shipping, and when you need only 3 resistors and the shipping is about 10-20 times its cost, it gets a little annoying. So I would suggest just skimming the whole book to see what parts you will need and then getting them all together. This will also save you time as you go through the book since you will have all the parts that you need.
5-0 out of 5 stars This book is exactly as described in the title.
This book is perfect for a begginer or someone with a little experience. I ordered it because I had some knowldge about electronics but none related to robots. It fills in everybit of knowldge you could want, giving you the tools you need to actually accomplish something. After reading you have everything you need to build the robot in the book or something completely different and more to your liking.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Find for Teaching Kids Electronics and Robotics

OOA is some "super magic" that uml people found it for commercial reasons.As Mr.Hay mentions there is no OOA.there is only "analysis" of the bussiness.
4-0 out of 5 stars It will broaden your horizons, but it is not a cookbook.
_Requirements Analysis_ is just the opposite of a book like Craig Larman's _Applying UML and Patterns_ or Ed Yourdon's _Modern Structured Analysis_.Both of those books--in fact, most books on analysis--present a single methodology and a single set of tools and notations, then walk you through the steps of the analysis process according to DeMarco or according to Jacobson or whatever.Read more

Editorial Review

The second edition of this well-known and highly regarded text can be used as the basis for a one- or two-semester undergraduate course in signals and linear systems theory and applications. Topics include basic signals and systems concepts, linear time-invariant (LTI) systems, Fourier representations of continuous-time and discrete-time signals, the CT and DT Fourier transforms, and time- and frequency-domain analysis methods. The author emphasizes applications of the theory through numerous examples in filtering, sampling, communications, and feedback. The parallel development of continuous-time and discrete-time frequency domain methods allows the reader to apply insights and intuition across the two domains. It also facilitates a deeper understanding of the material by bringing into focus the similarities and differences between the two domains. The text also includes introductory chapters on communication systems and control theory. This book assumes that you have a background in calculus as well as exposure to complex numbers and elementary differential equations. Because of its thoroughness and unhurried pace, this text is highly recommended for students and those interested in self-study. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Well Written
It is probably the best book on the subject which I have had. It was the reference for my undergraduate signals and systems course. It is both good as a text book and a reference. Very well written! explains the concepts very clearly and has a lot of good examples and end of chapter problems.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good introduction to signals and systems
As a non EE undergraduate, I needed a book to prepare my for the rigors of an MSC degree in DSP which builds heavily on basic foundations such as Fourier, Laplace and Z transforms. I spent 3 months reading the book (while working) before starting the MSc and I found that it was exactly what I needed. There are plenty of examples, which for me are a vital ingredient in any book that touches this area--there is no way to learn without examples and this book excels at them.
3-0 out of 5 stars Best example for "Popular opinion also may go wrong"
It is a popular book in the Signal Processing Arena. But it is still questionable if it is a better if not the best book around. This book is a comprehensive one, no doubt. But it is more wordy and becomes stereotypic after a point. It tests the reader's patience if he is not informed about the above fact. Some students even start developing hatred towards DSP courtesy: its way of presentation. Though many students might rate this book as one of the classics in DSP, the statement is arguable. It is high time this book undergoes major revision and the presentation is made crisp and more user friendly.

This book does a great job of presenting all details of operating system design and operation. When appropriate, the authors point out how Linux, Solaris or Windows implements a given topic. This is valuable for software developers who work on these platform and need to understand how the scheduler is going to react if you spawn new threads/processes.

1-0 out of 5 stars Boring and Obvious
This book touches on some nice topics but if fails to state anything more then the obvious for anyone that knows anything about OO and the unified process.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent - if you willing to put in a ton of effort
The "Unified Software Development Process" is still probably the best book yet on software process. Yes, it's difficult to read and it's not an introduction by any means (it reads like a textbook). but, if you're willing to put in the time and effort, what you'll get out of it is i think is worth it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book
I used this book for a course in Computer Architecture. Except for one chapter, I read the entire book and I practiced almost all the exercises. As a novice reader, I liked the book very much. The book is very well organized,chapters are laid out in logical sequence and the writing style is very clear. Many illustrations are presented in the book that make it easy to understand concepts. Many examples are presented in special cases that help the student understand complicated stuff. Overall I am very much pleased with this book. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is because the answers to the exercises listed at the back of the book had errors in them (I confirmed this fact after checking with my instructor) and these are not fixed even in the last edition. Highly recommended to those who are new to this topic.

3-0 out of 5 stars Tries to cover all of computer science in one book.
I can't say I have read this book cover to cover, but I did examine each chapter and its contents for at least a couple of hours. I am a computer science instructor at a start up university.
3-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Survey of Computer Architectures
I recently used this book for a course and agree with the reviews that it is easy to read and very concise.It provides a wide scope of computer architectures and covers these well.However, I did find it frustrating at times that it provided too cursory a coverage of the computer organization pertaining to memory.This was especially prevalent in its discussion of caching and virtual addressing.It did not provide enough technical discussion or indepth examples although the illustrations were excellent. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply a classic in the field
This book is a classic in the field. In its area may compare in clarity and rigor to the monumental "The Art of Computer Programming" by Donald Knuth.
5-0 out of 5 stars How to figure out and document what your system needs to do
Computer systems are best understood, designed, implemented, and documented when they are thought of as primarily information flows.The reason should be obvious- at the most essential level, that is all that they do and all that we humans need them to do.
5-0 out of 5 stars Changed the way I look at programming
This book offers data flow as a simple and powerful metaphor for programming. The idea is this: look at a program as a black box that takes information in and spews information out, then at each stage refine this black box by breaking it out into individual ones. I read this book many years ago and it remains the most useful book on program design that I have read. It was written before object oriented programming but it adapts to it in an obvious way. Forget about UML. Data flow is the best way of presenting the elusive big picture view, that view of the forest that gets obscured by all those trees. It has the following virtues offered nowhere else: 1. It serves as a design tool that you can work with and refine to identify object classes. 2. It is easily understood by computer illiterate clients. 3. It allows programmers new to a project to quickly come up to speed. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A good set of core skills for object oriented system analyst
The UML writing style of this book is very easy to follow, and a great way to gradually introduce the whole concept of object-oriented analysis and design methodologies to the readers, especially the beginners.The authors did a great job illustrating the entire system development life cycle with a coherent and realistic example using the latest UML notations, practical methodologies, and various analytical artifacts.The only criticism I have is that sometimes the description of a particular topic spans over multiple pages without sub-leveling or sub-topics or highlights, making it very difficult for user to go back and perhaps mine certain important concepts embedded in the discussion.Perhaps more generalization relationship and diagrams can be helpful.Overall, it is a very good source of reference for object-oriented design in layman's term.I will strongly recommend it to my colleagues.

2-0 out of 5 stars Extremely repetitive book
I had to purchase this book as part of a graduate course in information systems. Beign myself a professional programmer and engineer, I am familiar with most of the terms and cases presented in this book. Unfortunately, the material is repeated over and over again. A 50 pages chapter perhaps have less than 10 pages useful content. Some of the topics are irrelevant but they spend a considerable amount of time on them. In short: I will not recomend this book unless you are willing to spend long hours filtering the content or you are forced to buy it as part of a college class.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Educational Text Book
This book is extremely helpful.It uses step by step guides to help the reader fully understand the content, plus a life-like story line to help the reader understand the placement of the information studied.I would recommend it to any student or professional who wishes to better their knowledge and understanding of analysis and design of an information system.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's OK
The data itself is fine.It does explain the information in an understandable way.
4-0 out of 5 stars Extremely thorough treatment of Systems Analysis...
This summer, I took a class in which we read this entire book. Yes, all 600+ pages of text (thankfully we weren't tested on the index). This HUGE book presents a very thorough treament of the Systems Development Life Cycle and the profession of Systems Analysis. From Project Planning to System Maintenance, hardly a detail gets shunned.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good S.A.D Book
I used this book to learn system analysis and design while taking graduate course. The book is well-written and the layout is pretty good. The authors broke down the information in such way you can understand easily. The book also has some exercises that help you practice what you learn. I kept the book and plan to use it a reference. I will recommend it if you are serious about learning System Analysis and Design.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very informative. If you develop web software it's a must-read
I recently finished reading How to Break Web Software: Functional and Security Testing of Web Applications and Web Services by Mike Andrews and James A. Whittaker. I, like many of you, develop web software for a living. I've always taken security seriously and occasionally sneered when I ran across examples of common mistakes. Having said that, this book was an eye opener for me.
5-0 out of 5 stars Technique after technique that really works
You can't really read a book like this.You read a few pages and prop the book up with a cookbook holder and start typing in the examples.There were a couple I could not duplicate, but almost everything worked as the authors said it would. Great book, or maybe it would be better to say, great tool!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dimensional Modeling Made Easy
Data warehosuing is a difficult subject to grasp. There are many disciplines that have to come together to make data warehousing work : database design, business understanding, management expertise, data mining, creating reports, project management, OLAP and more.5-0 out of 5 stars Great Starter
Great place to start learning about DW.The author builds the concepts layer upon layer. Very easy to follow the progression.Once you'e finished this book, then move on to Ralph's Lifecycle Toolkit for some nitty-gritty examples and much more about building data marts into datawarehouses.
