How Good of an Estimator Are You?

by Nick Monday, November 26, 2007 9:25 AM

Don't be ashamed to admit that you aren't a good one.  Many people are not, and I'm definitely not as good as I should be, given my profession.  But then again, in my profession, most people are terrible estimators.  That's why I picked up the latest book from Steve McConnell, called Software Estimation - Demystifying the Black Art.  This is the same guy who wrote Code Complete, which is considered by many (including me) to be the ultimate manual on practical software engineering.  I have a review of his new book on BlogCritics.  Check it out.  This should be on your book shelf, right next to The Mythical Man Month.
