First, I say many thanks for all you Ranchers that make Internet resource even more interesting.
Today I passed IBM 486 exam with score of 67%, the minimum required for this exam. The only problem is that I had no time to review my answers.
I read Larman cover-to-cover without any review but I recommend at least a topic review. Now I am planing do this for the topics I have low score. UML Distilled, as it is very short, I read twice.
The real exam questions are the same leavel as those from ICE test but in real exam questions are better explained, there are few not so clear explanation. Some diagrams are not so import, does not try to full undestant the exibts before reading an discovering what is really important in diagrams or text.
If you plan to take the exam I advise you to concentrate on IBM objectives and IBM ICE questions. Try to catch what is really important in each question and there are many questions you can preview if you "read between" ICE questions lines. Always ask yourself if you are able to recognize the IBM objective related to each question and try to apply concepts to other scenarios. Also, avoid spend long time discussing some question from ICE question, you can search this forum to see that some questions are well known as silly and without much importance.
Thanks you all,
Adrian
