Ranchers,

I would like to say that I passed in IBM RUP v7(17/03/2009).

My preparation was reading IBM Rational Unified Process Reference and Certification Guide: Solution Designer.

I studied for about 2 weeks (short time), but I'm glad with my performance.

I can't forget to thank all who helped me in my preparation, in special the book authors (Ahmad K. Shuja and Jochen Krebs) for their excellent book and ranchers .

Now, my next target is PMP. I'm already studying by the Rita's Book.

Any doubt or suggestion, I'm available.

Congrats .

Does this book cover every objective in this exam? Are there any mock exams to practice?

And what do you think about RUP compare to Agile methodology?

The Certification's book is complete and very easy to understand.

Regarding mocks, I used the following mock exam: RUP Mock

2 different approaches.

Thanks .

Does your company use RUP? If so, what does it help?

And could you please to explain more about RUP vs Agile?
Somebody told me that RUP is obsoleted, Agile is better, most people don't use RUP now, what is your opinion?

Hi!
Concerning RUP being obsolete and RUP v.s. agile methods:
I personally feel that the UP can be as agile as you want it to - after all, it is not a software development process but a software development process framework. Put simply, it means that you have a toolbox from which you can choose the tools appropriate for the mission you are embarking on. This can be an advantage, but also means some additional work (the choosing of tools) compared to a fixed development process.
If you are in a smaller team doing smaller projects, UP may be unnecessary large - something like Scrum may be more suitable.

Best wishes!

I would never trust somebody.Somebody can tell whatever they want, without being supported by facts or valid arguments.
