This is the book for Rose 2002 users who have no previous experience with UML and want to learn UML 1.x, who want to learn the Rational Unified Process, and who want to work with C++, Visual C++, and Visual Basic.

Ms. Quatrani illustrates step-by-minute-step how to follow along in Rose to create the described model. Considering the reported complexity of Rose for beginners, this may be a welcome approach to learning UML, Rose, and RUP simultaneously. For those looking to learn UML without using Rose, the enumerated steps to creating diagrams and diagram elements is distracting, to say the least.
