Hi guys,
I would like to know whether Mark Cade's book is enough for part 1. The UML part is only restricted to a few pages ( haven't gone further pages). Do I need to have a more understanding of UML for the part-1 of the exam or is it sufficient for the multiple choice ques. And what about the rest of the topics ???. I am planning to buy a good book for UML for the part-2 and 3. But right now concentrating ONLY on part 1 of the exam.

Mark Cade's book is not at all sufficient to clear Part 1 exam.
Refer paul allen's book.

Hm.. got Mark Cade's book, people say it's not sufficient to pass the exam. Read the reviews in amazon about Paul Allen's book, not a very good feedback about the book.

Now what

The followings are the material I used to prepare my SCEA Part I.

Mark Cade's book
UML Distilled by Martin Fowler
have a quick review on Design Pattern by GOF
study notes listed in Java Ranch SCEA online resource.

For the topic covered by Mark's book, it is pretty adquate.

By the way, I passed part I with 83%, not a very good result, compare with other people in this forum, but enough for me to go on to Part II.

I found Cade's book to be a good supplement and review for the knowledge gained through work experience, but I'd hardly use it alone. I'd also recommend Fowler's UML Distilled and Larman's Applying UML and Patterns for additional study resources going into this.

And I agree with Wai Hung - for the topics covered by Cade, it is sufficiently good as a preparation material.
