Hi,

I have question on test 636,637,638,639.

Can i plan to take 638 before taking 636&637.
or taking 636&637 before 638 is a better approach.

Thanks a lot

It really depends on your knowledge.

Personally, I feel 636 and 637 are more easiler, as they are knowledge-based exams.

For 638, it requires you to have the knowledge on RequisitePro, which may not really that easy.

In addition, are you work for IBM Business Partners associated with the Rational brand? If not, even you have passed all the required exams, you wont get certify.

YES because these tests are specifically designed and aimed to provide to IBM business partners, which specialized in Rational software.

Thus, you can see that the passing rate of these tests are very high. Except 638, all passing rate of the exams is 80%. For 638, it is 78%.

I don't like those Rational Certifications.
You'll have to pass a lot of tests before getting certification in one of their products.
Those products doesn't convince me neither.
What do you think?

What I feel uncomfortable is only the exam fee. They are too expensive. However, if my company sponser me, I dont mind go for it.

You may consider SCEA.
