Hi all,
I have cleared IBM 486 on Saturday with 72%. I know this is a very low score. But I couldnt expect a better score due to my shorter preparation time ( Just 4 days). I read through larman once. Thanks to java ranchers who discussed a lot about sample answers ( particularly why certain answers are wrong).

no full fledged design experience though. am a developer of Java. That helped me to finetune my object knowledge in terms of diagrams.

2 days for the XML exam is not enough!!!

Thats the toughest exam I've taken yet (I scraped by with exactly the pass mark!)

I cant remember much about it now - but make sure you know everything in the ICE test backward and blindfolded before sitting the test!

Good luck!
