Good tutorial ... you can also use the trial version of their software to model
diagrams for school projects.

Well designed site, easy to use and not cluttered.

One can get a good idea about how DFDs work after 15 minutes of persuing (this
is a two page tutorial). Useful for familiarity purposes.

Technical Remarks:

There are quite a few other turtorials on this site as well, covering Booch
Diagrams ERDs (Entity Relationship Diagrams) to Yourdon & Coad diagrams.

I spent about 15 minutes reviewing the various tutorials/descriptions on the
various types of diagrams.

It's a good high level overview and useful for users that have little or no
experience with diagramming.
