Book Description

29 April 2009
You can’t truly understand Systems Analysis and Design (SAD) by only reading about it; you have to do it. In Systems Analysis and Design, Third Edition, Dennis, Wixom, and Roth offer a hands–on approach to actually doing SAD. Building on their experience as professional systems analysts and award–winning teachers, these three authors capture the experience of actually developing and analyzing systems. They focus on the core set of skills that all analysts must possess––from gathering requirements and modeling business needs, to creating blueprints for how the system should be built.

To say this book is verbose would be a gross understatement. Where a simple concept could be explained in two or three sentences, the authors dedicate paragraphs, pages, diagrams, tables and in some cases, whole chapters in order to get their point across. Readability is further reduced by pointless pseudo-management jargon in a fruitless attempt to lend academic rigour to a subject that should really be common sense. On page 135 the authors declare that "humour is a powerful tool", advice that has been sadly ignored as they wrote this book. Avoid.

2.0 out of 5 stars IT project management more than IT analysis 25 Feb 2012
By Giulio
The title of this book is misleading since a lot of pages (30-40% or more) are focused on typical IT project manager activities: staffing people, estimating costs, workplans, etc. Even the UML is used as a subsidiary instrument together with other (old) tecniques like CRC card, CRUD analysis, etc.
I suggest this book for all of you having this kind of problem: "my boss told me that I'm the new project manager and assigned me the to build a new product, from where I start?" If you are in this situation then this book will conduct you by hand in the dark IT valley.
For me reading this book was absolutely boring, useless and wasting out all energies from me. I stopped to read it, I can no more. A lot of jargon, poor UML introduction, a lot of generic sentences.
Don't buy it if you (like me) are searching for a good reference point (to keep on the desk beside your PC) about all is concerning analysis and design with UML.

This book is very good for kicking start your project. As it's about Analysis and design, i always come to this book when i reach that phase.
The authors try to be as pragmatic as possible. very practical templates. Just love this book.
NB. Those bad reviews are because the reviewers are not developers. For a developer who have to do all the phases yourself, this book is just indespensable

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for IT projects 13 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book on analysis and design. It wasn't quite what I needed since its emphasis is on IT projects rather than designing new products or systems (though it does address these). So it places a lot more emphasis on analysis than would be appropriate when designing a new system.
I also think that the deisgn section is rather weak, especially the way it takes a bottom-up approach: create the classes and then join them into units, rather than a top-down approach which is much more sensible in a design.
