4.0 out of 5 stars Practical but not bang up to date
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many erroneous errors and ambiguities...
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to systems analysis and SSADM, 15 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: SSADM Version 4 (Paperback)
I found the book very easy to read. It begins by taking you from what is systems analysis and design and why it should be carried out right through the different stages of SSADM. I also found the examples used very helpful. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to learn about systems analysis and design and SSADM.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SSADM Version 4 (Paperback)
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.
