Hi
I had the good luck to take the exam on 16th Jan. I passed with 80%.
I had mostly used the WhizLab Software and Larman's book.
The exam seemed quite easy, especially some questions were really straightforward.
I followed the advise of going through the non-diagram based questions first.
However, I felt that the questions on Diagrams are more easier to answer then the theoretical ones.
Also I had noticed in my exam that some questions had quite misleading answers like - if the Class name was CourseSection.
The answer would have options like
-- Create attribute called Class Section
-- Create Attribute called Section for the class
etc.
I would definitely advise you to go through the questions quite fast at the first go, then you know the contents and at the 2nd pass, gain more confidence.
The time is sufficient I would say.
Also I had asked for a 17" monitor which helped quite a lot.
Most of the Diagram based questions were based on 1 big diagram and that helped a lot.
Good luck to all planning to take the exam
Thanks
Sumit
