General Course Handouts

Lecture Notes & Weekly Readings

Here I'll post the lecture notes, and suggest some relevant parts of the textbook to read as a supplement to each week's lecture topics. These are from the required text, Bennet et al., "Object-Oriented Systems Analysis and Design", except where noted otherwise. Note that chapter and page references are different if you have the first edition of the book - I'll try and indicate the differences.
