Save your money

I am currently an instructor at the University of West Florida and I am leading a class on Object-Oriented Design Patterns. We are modeling the patterns we are exploring using UML. Visually modeling the patterns in UML has greatly increased our understanding of the relationships and collaborations between the various classes, which has enhanced our understanding of the patterns. I have used Booch's book on UML as a guide for teaching UML to the class, as it is still the best book available on UML.
It is not a book to teach OO. You still need to read a book on Object-Oriented concepts such as Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with Applications by Booch or Object-Oriented Modeling and Design by Rumbaugh to get an understanding of what you are trying to model.

Quality from house O'Reilly

This handbook is one of the best from O'Reilly. It was one of the first I bought. It is complete reference with all UNIX commands and options. Most of the commands have long descriptions and examples. Chapter 2 containing the alphabetical summary of commands, is the most interesting and used. This is truely the best UNIX instructor for everybody, although it is important to say that beginners will have problems to understand it! They must get a little UNIX experience first!
