ATTENTION: Big disappointment.,

This review is from: Software Requirements (Dv-Best Practices) (Paperback)
I am a quality assurance manager at a software house. If you want to improve or just assess your requirements engineering process/procedures, this is definetely NOT your book. Out of the several books I've bought about the subject, I found this one to be of the least value. There are excellent other books out there, such as Kovitz's Practical Software Requirements, Robertson's Mastering the Requirements Process and Sommerville's Requirements Engineering (which includes numerous best practices).

The list of alternative books is useful, however, there is no explanation of why this book is poor and others better, they are merely assertions.

I am puzzled by this negative feedback. This book has a very practical approach to the hierarchical and then iterative approach to requirements gathering. It lends itself both to manual requirements analysis as well as suporting software development through the use of CASE tools. I am a Programme Manager in a large outsourcing company prior to which I worked for 15 years in a software house in various positions e.g. Head of Development, Head of Business Analysis as well as Quality Manager. In this organisation I used this book to help implement the principles of CMMI. In implementing these processes I had a query and e-mailed Karl Weigers, he responded almost immediately and answering my question - this is the best recommendation I can give.
