About this title:

Synopsis: IEEE CSDP & CSDA Exam Study Guide A study guide for the IEEE CSDP/CSDA software engineering certificate exam --- the CD version Volume I, Second Edition (Volume II is an accompanying CD) This Second edition of the software engineering certificate training course is applicable to both the CSDP and the CSDA exams even though sometimes we may only refer to the CSDP exam. The purpose of this training course is listed in the following six subparagraphs: · First, this course is designed to prepare you, the reader, to pass the IEEE CSDP or CSDA exam, which is part of the qualification for the CSDP or the CSDA certification. It is not a general course in software engineering, but is tailored to those areas that have a high probability of generating exam questions. · Second, you may use the material on this CD to read and/or listen to the recording as a means of improving the reader’s skill in software engineering in preparing for a state required exam in order to be li-censed as a “software engineer.” (For example, Texas licenses soft-ware engineers.) · Third, neither the author of the course nor any other instructor has seen the exam. The IEEE does not want to be accused of teaching the exam. Whether or not you pass the CSDP/CSDA exam is dependent upon your software engineering experience and knowledge. · Fourth, this course was based on the CSDP exam specifications furnished by the Computer Society’s CSDP Certification Committee. These are the same specifications that were used by the exam writers. It is assumed that the exam writers and course author have arrived at the same interpretation of the exam specifications. · Fifth, this course does not contain all the information necessary to pass the exam. Five days (the live lecture equivalent) is an insufficient amount of time to impart to you a discipline as complicated as soft-ware engineering. This course provides a detailed outline of the exam specifications, basic definitions in the field of software engineering based on these specifications, and pointers to other references that you can use while studying in preparation for the CSDP exam. · Sixth, the original live-lecture course is a 3-day seminar where ques-tions are encouraged and in some cases answers from compatriots who are also taking the course. This of course is not possible with a DVD or CD course. We tried to compensate by giving you extra material. This resulted in a course that if given live would take approximately 5 days.

About the Author: Richard Hall Thayer, PhD, CSDP, visited all six contents as a consultant and lecturer in software engineering, project management, and software engineering standards. In the summers, he was a visiting lecturer and senior researcher at the University of Strathclyde, Scotland, and he recently visited China where he lecured on the new IEEE professional software engineering certificate. Dr. Thayer received a BSEE degree and an MS degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a Ph.D. from the University of California at Santa Barbara in Electrical Engineering. He is an Emeritus Professor of Software Engineering at Sacramento State University and before that was a senior officer in the U.S. Air Force. He spent four years directing the U.S. Air Force R&D program in computer science Dr. Thayer is a Fellow of the IEEE, a member of the IEEE Computer Society Golden Core, and a Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP), Standards Committee. He is the author of 16 books on software engineering.
