A lifetime in IT but I still have to 'mug up' on stuff

It is amazing to me that although I have been in this industry for more years than I care to count I still find nooks and crannies where I feel like a veritable babes in arms.

This week my focus is UML – frankly I knew it existed but it was not one of the tools that I have had to got ‘eyeball to eyeball’ on.
With my role encompassing Visio I have been called upon to demo the UML modelling capabilities of the product and frankly I am not sure where to begin, I have arrange some training with my colleagues in Redmond but that is only using the tool. I have put myself on a crash course on UML (through research) and 3 days on I realise what a deep and useful subject this is.
However my customer demo goes I am sure the investment in becoming familiar with the framework will be time well spend.

Hi, Ian - I am in a similar position to yourself; I'd appreciate any recommendations for particularly useful texts to study, as there is an awful lot of material out there and it's pretty difficult to know where to start. Regards, John
Well I've started with the Big Dummies guide and it seems a good a route as any
