I wouldnt buy this book for design patterns. Thats for sure. Also, I am amazed at the quantity of errors this book has starting with javax.ejb.Session and javax.ejb.Entity (page 16) and to wrong relationship directions in case study class diagram (page 169). If you read this book and something doesnt make sense...it probably doesn't. I would never expect something of so low quality coming from Sun Micro Press. (Microsoft Publish, on the other hand, only super quality material). The worst 40 dollars I've ever spent.
Association directions are wrong. You would expect a customer to know about his orders, not orders to know about customers who made them or adrresses, it would make more sense if a customer object had references to adresses not the other way around.

Hi I am currently working on the Assignment part, I have just flipped through the book for the assignment section(in the book store), but I am not sure if it is any good for the assignment section. vivek
