This is a good book to cover the fundamentals of this important area. I have found the advice to be practical and the book has been useful since I left education and began working as a professional software developer. The sections on requirements gathering etc. only become useful on real projects. You should read this in conjuction with Code Complete.

I believe it's the best book for Software Engineering. I had the fifth version and I believe that this release is more adapted to the new technologies used in our days in Software Engineering like UML and RUP. Also Ian sommerville is know as the reference in these fields.

I am not from a formal software engineering background but have been programming for about 6 years. I've decided to do an M.Sc. in Software Engineering and found this book an excellent introduction into the subject. It is clear and well written, if only all I.T. related books could claim this. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good starting point. It provides the opportunity to explore the subject areas in more detail as "Further Reading" is recommended throughout.

I like this book. It's worth every penny. Most of the information in it is timeless so even a decade old print is good. I've been taking it with me for coffee as leisure reading. It has some nice formulas worth knowing and some good concepts so if you love writing software and want a refresher then this is good. The examples are written in C++ and Ada so it's easy to follow for programmers in general. I don't know how interesting it would be for someone who doesn't do this professionally or who doesn't enjoy programming but for me I love the knowledge in the book.

I've had this book for 12 years now. Started reading it again and i found that most, if not all of the topics are as relevant today as they were on date of publishing! Money spent on this was an investment. If you are a passionate developer or are interested in software then this is good read.

While the examples are written in C++ and ADA, which are old languages and not as widely used arguably, the examples are easy to follow even for beginners.

I am a computer science student and this book is beyond vital for my studies. I am hoping to work in Software Engineering and programming is a huge aspect of my degree, so we use this book at university. Even though it is the 6th edition, it is still very relevant. This book is a must own for students of this subject and computer science.

Not the most exciting subject but the information contained within more than assisted me through this particular University module. One of the few books I've purchased that was useful and aimed at the correct level - not for the squeamish

Although the book is good in terms of material covered, I don't understand why the answers to the chapter problems are not available for everyone. It is time I think for the lectures to spend more time( as the students do) and use their own questions for their lectures, so we can all benefit by using the solutions to the chapter problems, that will help to get a better understanding of the material. By the way, this book is recommended not only for students but also for professionals on the filed, did anyone though that a professional that bought this book might need to check for the answers on the chapter questions, but a lecturer was not available for him to correct him, because he left college long time ago?
