Hi:

Just wondering if we need to do anything else, apart from faxing SCJP score to IBM to get the instructions for ICED certificate...

I just faxed my SCJP score, so we need to inform IBM anything about it ?

Thanks,
Hi Gaurav:

Congratulations !!!



Enjoy !!

Regards,
Hi Gaurav:

Cool..go ahead with your exam confidently..

Its not very difficult if you have really understood the basic simple concepts such as what is a usecase exactly, how to identify classes etc...

Out of my experience I feel, we need to answer all the q's one afetr the other, except that we just leave the ones that appear to take a lot of time.

We will surely have time at the end, thats when we can coolly think about those q's and then get the answers easily.

All the best ! Just think coolly, and you will do well.
I cleared IBM-486 last week with 77% and now an ICED.

The exam was not very difficult, but we need to understand Larmen's concepts and Fowlers statements.

My preparation time was 1.5 months and I read Larmens and Fowlers books at least 3-4 times to get strong hold on the topics and concepts.

There were not many questions on Design patterns.

I also used, MZ's quizzes, Bala's notes and exams, cfw exams ,ICE exam and EZ notes.

I felt the sample test was easier than the real test, might be because of reading those questions many times.

Thanks to all the ranchers for all your help.Thanks MZ for your quizzes .Thanks Patrick for your positive encouragement to not be scared about the exam.

I am very happy that I would be getting a certificate FINALLY.

Thanks all !!
