I would like to know how much detail I need to study for UML for Part 1 exam. Is it enough if I just read cade book for UML ? it has got very basic stuff for UML and very few pages in it. or do I need to read the Book Fowler for UML portion of the exam. Experienced people- pl help me.

Thanks very much.

The content covered in Cade was enough for me when I took the exam a few weeks ago.

However, if the material you read in Cade is your first ever exposure to UML, it might be a good idea to read through UML Distilled first and/or in addition to Cade. It's a very quick read anyway if you stick to the sections that are relevant to the exam objectives.

When it comes to last minute revision, Cade covers the information you need to know very concisely.

If you do look at UML distilled, make sure you are looking at an older version that covers UML1.x as that is what the exam is based on.

Otherwise, it may be a bit of information overload to remember what the changes were from 1 -> 2 if you read the latest version of UML distilled.

The UML questions I got in the exam were very straight forward. Nothing tricky or ambiguous. You may fare differently.

Good luck!

Peter.

Susan,

Though peter has covered almost everything, but just want to add that very basic knowledge of UML is required. As he suggested, UML distilled or MarkCade are enough to answer the exam questions.

Regards,
