comment Software design vs physical products design
@whatsisname I'm not sure I can agree about how software doesn't require the need to care about distributing copies. I get your point, but with software we have to consider the platform/embedded possibilities and the technologies that will be used. This could impact in the near future a possible port if the design is done with poor layering and strong ties to the underlying filesystem etc. Thanks for the answer though, it has given me an insight on some things I should consider if I get this question during my examination.

comment Books or help on OO Analysis
I've been programming in OO for four years now in Java and C++. It was oriented on business applications so I'm pretty sure I'm covering the first 3 points. I've also spent 6 months on UML syntax in a crash course in college. It's just that I don't understand how they can expect me to define software entities from use cases into class diagrams if I've done like one or two in my life. Sorry if I hadn't specified it. I will have a talk with my teacher this week, thanks.

comment Books or help on OO Analysis
Well, during the exam the teacher gave us the domain model, two or three use cases on some vital system operations and a glossary. We had to model up a class diagram and some sequence diagrams for these. The thing is, the jump from real-life modeling to OO classes didn't seem clear to me. I handle the GRASP principles pretty well, but I lack practice. I could use something that gives a pre-made analysis and asks you to draw the OO design in form of class diagrams or something. I know it varies from one person to another, but some concepts should always make sense.
