At last passed the exam with 81%
Hi! 1st of all thanks for all the people here, because these discussions really helped me much.
Also thanks for review UML questions by CFW and bparanj, they gave me really a nice skeleton for last night preparation, as they highlighted what should be reviewed. The last what I did before taking the exam, I looked through Ezequiel Cuellar notes.
I began some lazy reading months ago. I started with UML Distilled (in russian) and Larman (in russian)... It is ok for understanding the main concepts, but soon I found that an English translation is required, so my advice to those whose native language is not english, to get access to english version anyway (at least Fowler, as in my case, and at least to see how that sound in original).
The all other information was mostly taken from this site.
As for the exam, it looked harder for me than ICE (though my ICE score was even less), but that perhaps because english is not my native and I didn't get used to all exhibits at once. Anyway, I didn't like big and numerous exhibits too much.
As that was my 1st certification, my mistake was that I spent too much on simple questions (thinking that 135min/56questions gives enough time for thorough solving), where in fact should be spent seconds in order to leave minutes for large exibits. That's why my worst results were in questions, which had more exibits (like Dynamic Modelling, though I liked this topic more than other), because I didnt have enough time to get into details much . So don't be mistaken that you have too much time!
Ok, thanks all once more!
