I am currently preparing for SCEA5 Part I. Though it is discussed in this forum, that Part I does not require to learn UML in detail. I am following Design Patterns and able to understand them well, except I am finding bit of difficulty in UML diagrams.
Hence I thought, it would be really nice to follow a UML book first to understand UML in detail that might be helpful for preparing for SCEA5 part I,II and III later on.
Please suggest me one book, that will cover enough UML that I can apply in SCEA5 Journey.
UML Distilled is a good book, but it's so "distilled", as the name suggests, UML Distilled is not a comprehensive study guide for UML. I recommend UML Bible, it's quite detailed, and covers both UML 1.4, and UML 2.
You can also get UML 2 superstructure specification from OMG website. I also recommend UML 2 Certification Guide: Fundamental & Intermediate Exams.
SCJA 1.0, SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCJP 5.0, SCEA 5, SCBCD 5; OCUP - Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced; IBM Certified Solution Designer - OOAD, vUML 2; SpringSource Certified Spring Professional
UML Distilled is a very good starting point. Once you read it and decide to go deeper with UML, you could start getting more detailed books.
In my opinion from SCEA 5 Part I,II & III perspective UML Distilled should help you get the 90% of what is required for the exam.
The only way to make your dream come true is to wake up.
