Wanted: Intelligent, Motivated Individuals for High-Paying Systems Analyst and Design Positions! This practical, no-nonsense textbook provides you with the rich foundation you need to enter the exciting field of systems analysis and design, and helps you gain the core skills that will ensure a successful and rewarding career! Each chapter in the text describes one part of the SAD process, provides clear explanations on how to do it, gives a detailed example, and then includes exercises that allow you to practice what you've learned. The focus is on the specific tasks that analysts need to accomplish over the course of a project, and the deliverables that will be produced from the tasks.
