Passing the IBM 486 exam

I recently passed the IBM 486 - Object-Oriented Analysis & Design with UML test.
Here are a few tips I would recommend in order to pass the exam.
1. Practical knowledge of designing applications.
2. Proper understanding of UML notation. (Martin Fowler does a good in his book- UML Distilled)
3. Reading Applying UML and Patterns by Craig Larman (again a good book for design patterns)
Just reading the UML Distilled book is not enough as it does not cover the design aspects of the test.
I felt that the questions were equally divided among UML & OOAD aspects. I fell short on time.
Also giving the Pre-Assessment/Sample Test on the IBM site helped me.(Infact that was the only resource )
Good Luck !
