IMO, The chapters that are most important are(2nd Edition) :
2,9,15,16,17,18,19,22,23,30 to 33,36
As per my policy, I did not leave the complex questions in the first round..And most of my questions had exhibits, so it didnt make sense leaveing those too. I gave considerable thought to every question and still finished anwering them in 1 hr 40 mins. So there was enough time to review the answers.
Quirte a few questions were related to a particular domain.Hence if u study the UML artifacts for the domain once carefully, u might spend more time on the first question, but other questions go much faster.
Most of the non domain related questions are either related to notation,architecture or development process and are generally quite straightforward.
I liked Larman's book becaus it deals with POS example throughout and thus helps to deal with the domain related questions.
One has to be very careful while reading the questions.they can get tricky...during the review i realised i hadnt clearly understood or misinterpreted a few questions.
There may be questions like: Identify all possible classes that can be implemented as singletons from the exhibit given.
One should be able to apply the knowledge of notations to answer such questions.
All the very best for ur preparations.
