Hi,
You can get the required info on IBM 486 group by browsing/searching the following groups:

1: http://www.coderanch.com/forums/f-9/patterns
2: http://www.objectsbydesign.com/tools/certification.html

If you will use these forums effeciently, you will find everything related to IBM 486. Yes, there are some recommended chapters of Larman for exam. Try above forums.

Bye,
Viki.

Also joining the yahoo group OOAD_UML would help to get thru the exam.

Hi,
I don't know ur background. But for me, I remember, I did a LOT of preparation of IBM 486; And I've foud it difficult too! I am not terrifying you, but I will not recommend you to skip Larman's chapter. Since Fowler's book is already very breif, you may say Larman have explain 1 para of Fowler in 1 chapter.
You can do this, in first iteration read all the Larman's chaps and in 2nd iteration read the recommended one.

Bye,
Viki.

Larman is really worth the effort, it might appear a bit dry in first read, but it is a book I am often coming back to this days.
