Hi,

I wouldn't waste valuable time learning UML 1.1. The last specification within the UML 1.x range was UML 1.5 but that has recently been superceded by UML 2.0, which has some very significant changes.

If you feel that you will be using UML commercially and want to learn it professionally, I recommend picking up a book on either UML 2.0, UML 1.4 or UML 1.5.

However, my SCEA Instructions do not declare what specification of UML is required and, therefore, this implies that any version is acceptable.

Regards,

Ian R.

Thanks for valuable suggestion.
I have UML book, I started study from that book, I realize that version should be acceptable for SCEA exam.
But now feels UML 2.0 would be smart choice.
Any source for UML2.0 e-book.

Thanks,
Sanjeev.

Hi,

The type of book to learn UML 2.0 on depends upon your current understanding of the notation and how it is applied within a development methodology (e.g. OOA&D).

Six or so years ago when I first learnt it I used SAMS UML in 24 hours (yeh, right) and a number of others that included the UML Reference Manual and the Guide Book, UML Distilled and many others on UML 1.1. However, it wasn't until I actually attended a Sun OOA&D course that I learnt how to apply them in the correct context of the development life cycle. I didn't find any books that covered this at the time but there may be many available now.

As for UML 2.0. Once you know UML 1.x it is a simple refreshment and upgrade self-learning tasks that can be done on the job using an updated Reference Manual or specification.

There are so many books available now the ones I used (over six years ago) might no longer be the best ones.

Regards,
