Class diagrams help you organize your classes so they make sense

Writing out class diagrams makes it a lot easier to spot potential problems in your classes before you write code. Thinking about your classes from a high level before you get into the details can help you come up with a class structure that will make sure your code addresses the problems it solves. It lets you step back and make sure that you’re not planning on writing unnecessary or poorly structured classes or methods, and that the ones you do write will be intuitive and easy to use.
