Can anyone recommend me which edition of UML Distilled to be used for 486? The third edition or the second edition? But the IBM site recommends us to use the second edition...

What about the Rancher's opinions? Just wanna know... Thanks...

I suggest the 2nd edition, as it focuses on the details of UML diagrams.

The 3rd edition aims to compare and pinpoint the difference between UML 1.x and UML 2.0, and thus, it may not be a cool choice.

Moveover, 486 does not contain any questions specific to UML 2.0, and thus, you are feel free to use the 2nd edition.

A big thank to Nick agan!!! I guess I need about one month for 486... Surely it will not be over August...
The rating "One exam per month" would be alright... Don't u think so?

I think it is ok. However, my rating is "One exam per week".

Anyway, best luck for the exam. If you need any addition info, pls let me know.

BTW, have you scheduled the exam?

1 exam a week is do-able... IF you dont have anything else to do, but its not sustainable over a long period - you'd go nuts!

I found an average of 1 exam every 2 months has been sustainable over the last 2 years and that has allowed me time to change jobs, move house, redecorate, have a baby and wake up at silly times of day to watch major soccer tournaments!

Attempts to study faster would likely result in marital disharmony!

but then everyone is different - go as hard and fast as you like.

good luck!
