Any suggestions on writing the OOAD certification for the first time ? I have booked for 2 weeks from today and am a bit stressed out over the whole thing.
Not exactly sure what to study. I find the recommended readings that IBM suggest to be either too vague , or too detailed. I find that each person that talks about the UML has a different interpretation on how it should be used.
I want to know what to study that most resembles what I should know for the certification. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The references recommended by IBM are "UML Distilled" by Martin Fowler and "Applying UML and Patterns" by Craig Larman. Going by their pre-assessment exam, IBM bases most, if not all, of the questions and answers in the 486 exam on the material in these two books.

You should also do the 'mock' test as many times as possible.

Also - take the mock test several (5?) times before you start getting the answers to the hard ones from posts in this forum.

Hi Kosaic,
Avoid my posts in the forum at the beginning, if you want crack the pre-assessment tests by yourself.You are most likely going to find the correct answers with explanations.Thanks to Javaranchers who have brainstormed to find the correct answers! Consider this as the last resort (or rather when you feel helpless!!)
Cheers,
Sandeep
