Has anyone taken the IBM 486 OOAD with UML test?
How does it compare with SCEA? Is it a hard test
like IBM 141 XML test? Thanks

I havnt done SCEA, but people tend to compare that to 483 (rather than 486).
I did not find 486 particularly hard, it requires logical thought rather than hard knowledge.
Basicly you need to read and understand Larmans book.
Go to ICE -- the questions are different, but similar, so you can get an idea -- whizlabs also do a test simulator which you may find helpful (at about 40 USD).
Good luck,
James

Hi James,
Did you pass 486 already? I just passed 141 (xml) this week. That is really hard. Hopefully, 486 is not as hard as 141 or harder.
You mentioned that "whizlabs also do a test simulator which you may find helpful (at about 40 USD)." but I just checked with whizlabs website, there is not such a simulator, even though they implied they will publish 486 simulator in their emails.
Could you give me some hints?
Jimmy

Guys,
I passed today with 76% also. It is good to know that so many people are interested in learning UML.
Thanks to Bala and people post your results here. You made me confident to take the test instead of studying over and over again.
I am targeting IBM enterprise developer and I am sure I can pass 483 very soon.
A better place for UML
