Passed IBM 486 today with 88%.

Perhaps it's just me, but I found some questions rather ambiguous.

Anyway, I'm grateful to Mikalai Zaikin
for providing very helpful quizzes ( http://java.boot.by/magnet-mocker/ ). Thanks Mikalai.

Thanks Mikalai and Hussain.

Prateesh, it took me about one and a half months to prepare for the exam.

But as background information, I should say that:
* Prior to the preparation period, I had been quite familiar with Fowler's (but not quite with Larman's), for I used Fowler's as one of the textbooks for my Intro to OOAD/UML classes (Yeah. I'm an instructor and actually quite embarrassed with the score ).
* I tried to study every topics in Larman's. Doing so was very time consuming and unnecessary, I think, if passing the exam had been the only goal. (I think Mikalai's quizzes could be used to assess which topics of Larman's are of higher importance with regard to the exam.)

Hope it's of some use. And good luck.

Hi Kishore, details re IBM 486 (which, to the best of my knowledge, has nothing to do with IBM's Rational Rose) are provided here:

Thanks Arun, and good luck.

Hi Lucky,
I am planning to appear for IBM 486. I was looking for the following book in the market for studying UML.

Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and the Unified Process, 2nd Edition
Author: By Craig Larman


But in the market this book has come up with its 3rd Edition which also include UML 2.0. Is it ok to study this 3rd Edition book because I am finding it difficult to get the 2nd Edition version of the above book.

Please let me know about this.

Thanks,
Steve
