The Foundation For All Other UML Reads

For those who wish to learn the UML, this is the first book they should buy and read. Those looking for practical examples will be disappointed. It covers all basic aspects of the language in a well-structured, albeit dry, manner. Ideally, this book should be used as a reference manual in the classroom (we used it in a Masters level course and it was very helpful). Otherwise, it is a most appropriate reference manual, especially if you use it to complement other UML texts.

Too many unnecessary details

While the authors provide a very comprehensive overview of data mining, they do go into too many details and as a result many critical points are lost. The authors are clearly motivated and therefore they discuss all they know in data mining. They should have selected some of the key points and elaborated on them.
