Passed today with 83 % :-)

Hi,

i passed the OOA/OOD 486 test today with 83%.

What to do:

- got some experience within a real development project with a good layered software architecture

- read Fowler & Larman

- read the question from Bala, ... (thanks for your help)

- slept 8 hours (!)

Now i'm going for the WSAD 4.0.3 157 Test to get
my "IBM Certified Solution Developer" this year to fulfill my personal business commitments... .


With kind regards
Gerd Watmann

Hi,

Congratulations on passing the exam ! Can you please give some tips on supplementary study material that is useful for the exam and which is not covered by the recommended texts ?

Did the class diagram of the case study :

1. have any names for the associations ?
2. show cardinalities ?

What percentage of the questions do you think was based on the case study ?

Good luck on your IBM 157 exam.

Bala

Hi Bala & Viki,

i think one point that is not very well covered by the official reference material is finding the right interaction diagrams from the use cases and applying the role pattern (but here in the forum are a few good references posted by you).

1+2) the class diagram of the case study does include cardinalities, but no names for the associations.

I think roundabout 25% of the questions were based on the case study.

The first time i tried the ICE test i got 70%, then i tried to get the 100% (...), because i thought well you can do this better and did a lot of researching in the recommended literature.

I finally reached 90% or so, then i found the official answers :-). I think if the test drives you to do studying its time well spent (don't look into the answers too early).

But don't think ICE is the same as the real one... .

Good luck to everybody doing this exam! I can recommend following the "www.jcert.org" way
if you want to sharpen your skills in J2EE enterprise development in a structured way.


With kind regards from Germany
Gerd Watmann

Does the article by Martin Fowler on Dealing With Roles covers the same Role Pattern which u mentioned?.

Bye,
