I finally did take the OCUP Fundamental Exam and managed to pass it by not very much. I was a bit dissapointed that the few questions I had asked here went unanswered, but I am pretty sure, I will try to answer what I can to help the others pass this exam.

First of all, Martin Fowler's book wasnt of very much help - YES I SAID IT - and its the truth. It is a great book to understand the practical UML usage, but the OCUP exam has little to do with practical UML.
READ THE SPECS... and u will pass. As simple as that (you dont need to know jack about UML, you will still pass).
Besta luck guys.

Hi Bala,

Thank you for sharing your experience. A while ago I was planning to take this exam and even read the spec... I don't even remember why I didn't take it. Can you design one or two questions typical for this exam?

Are you planning to take intermediate and advanced exams?

Hello Bala:
I need your help.
I want to know how many marks each Q carries.
(i know that you have 80 questions altogether)
Are all questions multiple?
what books/materials did u refer for this test .
And approx how many hours do u need to spend for this exam.
I can say i was doing UML for the past 2 years.

Your advice is appreciated.

Bala,

In one of ur emails u mentioned that....
"I am planning on taking the OCUP Fundamental Exam. I went thru a lot of resources on the web about the subject and I was able to get a bunch of sample Question Papers on UML - although they were pertaining to the IBM OOAD Cert, they were very useful."

would it be possible for u to passon that material as I am also planning to do OCUP Fundamental .

Thanks

Sorry...havent been able to get on this forum for a while.
Anyhow... first of all you can get lot of materials from yahoo groups. search for OOAD.

But I want to tell you guys something... If you are planning on taking the OCUP exam, just go thru the specs and you will pass. If you have time, read UML Bible - it would help too. But otherwise, there is absolutely no need for any other preparation. This exam will be nothing like the OOAD exam by IBM - it is totally different.
