Reviews of the previous edition:
"The main strength of the book is its clear and comprehensive introduction to the SSADM standard. The book will continue to be a very important standard text for the foreseeable future."

"I have used various editions of this book for some years now and found that the students like it and thus use it."
This new edition builds on the strengths of the previous editions, and develops the focus on practical learning with more extensive exercises, more tips on applications, advice on tools outside of the scope of SSADM and information on other information systems development methods.The third edition of Practical Business Systems Development Using SSADM:
This book has been written to appeal both to students with no previous knowledge of systems analysis and design and to practicing analysts. The skills acquired in learning SSADM can be applied to virtually any information systems development, as many of the techniques can be mapped to other standard methods and approaches. It is ideal for those studying at HND, BSc and MSc level, and for those studying for the Information Systems Examining Board certificates in SSADM.Philip Weaver is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Information Resource Strategy at the Harrow Business School, University of Westminster.
