Hi!

I just passed the OCUP Fundamental Exam and wanted to share my experiences.

At first, I took the exam at a testing center in Munich, Germany. As a non-native english speaker I got additional 30 minutes, alltogether 120 minutes.

There was more than enough time to answer and review twice. Nevertheless I found the exam quite frustrating. I worked through Tim Weilkens book and the spec but many of the questions I could not answer at once.

Most of the times when I was unsure, I thought no answer really fitted. I studied the definitions from Tim Weilkens, but none of the answers matched to the possible answers in the exam.

But enough of the downsides. I passed with 69 out of 80 questions and here are my hints for you:

-Study the Use Case section really hard. Interpret diagrams: Which use cases in a diagram could be abstract, extended, included, deleted? How many actors are involved at least? And so on

-Know all about Pins, Input/OutputParameters and ObjectFlows in Activity Diagrams

-Know the meaning of each diagram type and how they relate to another: e.g. Communication Diagrams are more general than Sequence Diagrams


Good Luck

Congratulations.

This does not match my experience. I could find back ([edit: need to learn proper english]virtually[/edit]) all answers to my exam questions in the book, with a good explanation. But not everyone gets the same questions.
