By God of Lucks grace I passed the IBM 486 Test today with 76%
Well, the test was difficult one heres something I like to say
The exhibts were very large and it was very irritating to scroll them up and down.
The Questions were difficult and required a lot of after thought.
I hope to use UML in my next project.

Well I think the best way to pass the exam and get most out of it is to try to apply it in a pseudo project of your own and visualize different scenarios.
This will take more time but it gives confidence to use uml.
It took me nearly 3 months till I felt I was ready for exam.
Best books are UML Distilled by fowler and Applying UML by larman.
Infact Appling UML gives a nice approach in how to actually use UML

I just took the pre-assessment test for the first time and got a 73% 22/30. At what score should I feel confident, I definitly felt like I had to dig deep on more questions then I would of liked. Only about 5 questions were easy for me.

Hey David,
The best score I got on the pre-assessment test was 90%, and that's also what I got on the actual exam. I think if you can get around 80% on the pre-assessment test on a consistent basis, then you'll do well on the real thing.
