Hi,

I want to take the 486 sometime in the future and I have no experience at all with UML. Are the two books recommended on the IBM's web site enough? What is the approach I have to follow in order to succeed.

Thanks,
Andrei

Yes, books by Martin Folwer and Cirag Larman is enough

Good luck

Thanks.

And do I need practice, do I need using tools like Rational Rose? Or the exam is a theoretical one.

Regards,
Andrei

The exam is more about knowing ObjectDesign than UML itself. Craig Larman is one of the best books i came across.

Rational Rose is too much for UML practice. Use
