hi All,

Does anyone know of any good books on OOAD and UML? By good i mean, easy to read, to the point, not too expensive and practical.

Suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

1) Head first design patterns.

2) UML in a nutshell.

I liked the above for the inexpensive at the same time good for a beginner content.

"Agile Software Development" by Robert C. Martin and "Refactoring" by Martin Fowler are the two books that made me grok what OOP is about. Both make use of UML, and the former also has a short introduction in an appendix.

In fact I think every serious OO developer should read at least those two books. But that's just me...
