Hi,
Recently started working on IBM RAD v6.0. I am not sure whether I should go for the certification for 255 or 256.
Can somebody please let me know how good you have to be to do good in the exam. I have gone through the earlier postings on this topic as well but could not resist asking again.
Or shall I wait for 2-3 more months and keep working on RAD and then give the exam.
TIA,
amit

Hi,

From what I've heard 256 is much more difficult than 255. I've taken
255 recently and learned a lot about RAD. I would recommend MZ's notes as the main study resource. Also IBM's pdf's are very usefull to get to know RAD.

HTH,

regards,
Rick

Hi there,
Many thanks for the reply.
Can you suggest me how should I go about learning RAD. Yesterday I was trying to attempt a MM test from MZ where I found that questions are related to what way you would do something in RAD and like that. I was a bit hesitated by seeing such questions as they would require a lot of practise with RAD overall. Have you done any sample applications in RAD to get to know RAD. My thinking is that even if we do that we may not be able to explore all the features the RAD provides and may miss the questions in actual exams.
Thanks again for your reply
Amit

Hi,

I would start doing the execises given by IBM itself:

IBM prepration series

If you follow this tutorial you will have the basic experience you need
to work with RAD6. After completion, you should start studying MZ's notes.

After that, take the MM test from MZ. Confident enough? Take the test!

Good luck!
Regards,
Rick
