|Systems Analysis and Design with UML Version 2.0: An Object-Oriented Approach [Second Edition], by Alan Dennis, Barbara Haley Wixom and David Tegarden. This is the main course text, essentially defining the course. You will find it of great help to have access to a copy of this book. Each lecture is based on one particular chapter of the book.|
**** Electronic lecture notes are available for download here. Some small changes/updates may be made shortly before the lecture, but these will always be done by the day of the lecture itself. ****
The files referred to by these links will become available shortly before each lecture. The pdf files are simply Adobe Acrobat versions of the Powerpoint slides, presented as 6 per page
The reading material for each week gives roughly equivalent chapters and sections of the course text.
