As announced previously, U of T is bringing in two new software engineering courses starting in 2007-08. Team projects will play a large part in both, so I'm looking for student-friendly guides to project management. I know of three books and one online resource that focus specifically on this topic:
Ricketts: Managing Your Software Project: A Student's Guide (Springer, 1998, 3540760466). More on development than Dawson, but still very traditional in its outlook (e.g., favors planning over agility); includes some useful discussion of group dynamics.
I'm sure there must be more out there, but Google and Amazon aren't turning anything up. I'd welcome pointers or suggestions --- it's tempting just to crib from "grownup" books, but I know from experience that undergrad projects are different from their industrial counterparts, and I'd like 301 and 302 to run as smoothly as possible the first time out.
