I used Smith & Ragan as a grad student and found the text organization useful: the Extended Example and the Job Aids were helpful for expanding my understanding of the processes and application of design principles. Dec 18th 2000 05:45:56 PM
Dick & Carey provides the best overview - easy to understand but still with sufficient detail. S & G also a text great for novices Dec 18th 2000 01:01:06 PM
