Use case diagram is a modelling diagram which depicts how the client and other users of the system (like developer, administrator etc) will interact with the system.There are actors which are the users which interact with the system and the system contains of different use cases which does specefic process.

A use case diagram is a type of behavioral diagram defined by the Unified Modeling Language (UML). Its purpose is to present a graphical overview of the functionality provided by a system in terms of actors, their goals—represented as use cases—and any dependencies between those use cases

Use Case is a textual description of interaction between the Actor and the system. It is used during the analysis phase of the project to identify and partition the system functionality.

Use case describes the behaviour of the system when the actor sends an input.

Use case usually emphasizes on on WHAT a system should not on HOW it shoul ddo it.

A use case diagram is a modeling technique in UML, which depicts the system level functionality via
user-system dilogue exchange in graphical manner.

Also it is a first stage where requirement model is born
and will iterate towards the discovery of static and dynamic behaviour of the candidate system.

Use Case diagram is a modelling technique in UML.
It has four components:

1.System boundary
2.Use case
3. Actor

A use case diagram aids in determining the scope of the system being designed via system boundary, the role or the system i.e Actor which interacts with the System being modeled,The Use cases which depict the functionality and the relationships between the use cases if any

A Use case is the interaction between the initiating actor and the benefiting actor via the system. it also uses includes and extends for simplicity, clarity and unambiguity.

UML is an graphical representation of the users actions and system response. Through UML diagrams its always easy to understand the users action on the system. In spite of documenting use cases in 200 pages its always good to represent it with the diagrams which would be easy for the team to understand the use case well.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
