Can you provide a link for this UML booklet? I would like to be able to study from it, but I haven't been able to find it on Yahoo groups.

Thanks,

Layne

[Andrew: changed link to point to Dave's original page - please let him get the advertising for his book rather than just giving away his study notes]
