Title: Writing Effective Use Cases
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional

Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Best pure writing use case book


There are a number of Use Case resources out there. Many focus on diagrammatic elements/style of use cases. These I could care less for (Applying Use Cases from Addison-Wesley/3-amigos series is one flop). My users want to review solidly written, concise scenarios IN TEXT. Alistair present a cohesive approach for developing and writing clear use cases.
4 instead of five stars is due to the following: -I reserve 5 stars for classics, and I have yet to be certain this book is one -I did not care for his subtle but odd notation symbols that are proposed as a way of identifying the broad place the use case has in the overall system
Still, these were minor complaints. In this book I have a great guide to jump-starting my use case writing process.

Title: Samba-3 by Example : Practical Exercises to Successful Deployment (Bruce Perens Open Source)

Great Addition


This book fills in where the author's "The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide" left off. It gives "real world" examples that make sense. The author assumes some admin experience on the readers part, however the examples build from small implementations through large-scale enterprise file & print sharing, so even those new to administration of Samba should find great value in both the books. I even found the discriptions of the smb protocol and how clients "talk" to servers and each other very easy to understand. If you liked the Official Samba-3 HOWTO... buy this to completely make use of the concepts by working the examples and learning solutions to some of the most common problems facing Samba admins. This book is like attending a training class, not just a "lecture" but actual hands-on tasks to enforce the concepts.

Don't waste your time or money


I have found this book very interesting to read, and a full of resource to understand the complex issues of COM. The book also explains awsomely the issues like dlls, concept of registry, GUID etc,that are essential for writing COM. A must read for any one who wants to understand the COM with a good sense of humour.
