Hello All,
I have seen here most people suggest Fowler and Larman book for UML design.
Can you please suggest a book to start? which one is better to start studying UML( Larman or Fowler?)
I dont have much experience in designing UML.
Thanks
Best Regards
Jyothy

I'm also a newbie to UML and i started trying to understand Fowler (UML Distilled). Things are very concise in there and i found it difficult to understand them clearly. I heard people saying that Larman is bulky in content, but relatively easy to understand.

Another good book for learning UML is "UML for Java Programmers" by Robert Martin, IMO: http://www.objectmentor.com/UMLFJP/

Hi,
Start by Fowler. By doing so u will get breif (infact Distilled ) view of UML diagrams along with OOAD. Then as soon as u finsih Fowler, pick Larman. But this time learn Larman and Fowler parallely.
I followed above strategy and now quite comfortable with OOAD using UML.
Bye,
Viki.
