Test 833: Object Oriented Analysis and Design - Part 1 (Analysis)
- URL :

Test 834: Object Oriented Analysis and Design - Part 2 (Design)
- URL :

I am not sure but i thinks that the resources below (which are also recommended for Exam 486) should be enough for these certifications :

2. Addison-Wesley - UML Distilled, 3rd Ed [Scan, OCR, Fowler] - 2003 - (By Laxxuss)
3. Applying UML and Patterns - An Introduction To Object Oriented Analysis and Design and the Unified Process, 2Ed - Prentice Hal
4. And articles on individual topics
Yes, i am too running out of time and needs this information ASAP.
Exam 486 will be retired at the end of this month. I have also confirmed it from IBM certification authorities. They replied me that:

"Exam 486 is being withdrawn on 6/30/07 along with all exams that are specific to the IBM Certified Enterprise Developer - WebSphere Studio, V5.0 certification"

There are alternative like Exam 833 and 834. If anybody have some information about these exams, let us know.
I have read in this forum that the exams below are also available in place of Exam 486:
633 - Object Oriented Analysis and Design - Part 1
634 - Object Oriented Analysis and Design - Part 2

How above exams are different from Exam 833 and Exam 834?
Hi Ranchers,

I am a silent visitor of this forum for a long time. I am preparing for IBM Exam 833 as i come to know from this forum that Exam 486 is going to be retired soon. So i decided to take Exam 833. What are the recommended books and articles and other stuffs for this certification.

Thanks in advance,
