This book covers all the basics of SSADM and sometimes beyond. It is almost too focused on the SSADM method and doesn't provide enough detail of how a project using SSADM might work. Whilst this may be considered an unfair criticism, this is discussed in the SSADM CCTA manuals, so should be dealt with here in the same practical approach as the rest of the book.
I have worked with the author (C Slater) in the PSO of a major British company, and the style of the book does reflect her no nonsense and common sense approach. This book is quite readable, unlike many books on IT.
The book does need to be brought up to date with the latest version of SSADM.

Mike Goodland is my teacher at university of Kingston, he is good and his book is even better.
It is very logical and easy to learn. Great!!!

I bought this book out of neccesity as it was on the reading list for the HNC Computing course I am doing. The book is hard to follow and understand. The appendix containing the suggested answers was useful, until I realised that many of the errors were contained here. This book would be worthwhile at half the cost, but at it's current price I would expect it to be more accurate. Buy with caution!!!
